Meet my friend, George!
This is probably the most basic George Foreman you can buy but I use it all the time. I primarily cook several chicken breasts at a time to have on-hand throughout the week. It does wonders for quick, easy prepping and makes it super easy to re-heat for lunch, or dinner or throw in a salad or wrap.
I always buy a large bag of individually frozen chicken breasts from Costco. The day before I’m ready to cook up a batch, I toss about 4 or 5 in a large ziploc bag to defrost overnight.
When I’m ready, I season the chicken with whatever combination of herbs and spices I’m feeling that day while my friend, George, is heating up.
Once he’s all nice and hot, I throw a couple of chicken breasts on (no oil needed!), close the lid and let them cook for a few minutes.
These ones in the picture are pretty thin and only took about 3-4 minutes to cook! Thicker ones would obviously need another couple minutes or so.
See how easy that is?! I mean, in a matter of about 10-15 minutes, you can have a chicken breast pre-cooked for every day of the week. Burgers, pork chops, tilapia filets, etc also work great!
I feel like the George Foreman grill has diminished in popularity but he is still a favorite in my book!
