How To Grill Chicken On Electric Grill
We love grilling all types of food, including burgers, steak, and chicken. But depending on the season and weather, we may not be able to get outside and grill like we usually do. Luckily, if you plan on grilling chicken inside, there are plenty of electric grills for chicken that will let you bring your grilled chicken indoors.
How Long to Cook Chicken on Electric Grill
Contact grills cook on both sides, clamping down on what you’re cooking, in this case chicken. The advantage of a contact grill is that it cooks both sides of the chicken at once. Almost all electric contact grills have adjustable temperature settings, so you will be able to control the heat. Chicken is often best grilled at about 350 degrees fahrenheit. At this temperature,it should typically take anywhere from 10 to 12 minutes per pound with no bones and 15 to 18 per pound with bones. To check whether it’s done, simply poke the chicken and see if clear juice runs out; this means it’s done. If it is pink or bloody, it will need to cook longer.
Open grills cook from the bottom with an open top. Sometimes the top is closable, but it never clamps down on the other side of what you are cooking. These grills generally get hotter and cook faster, as the lid will hold heat in the grill. You should be cooking at around 350 degrees Fahrenheit. It takes around 8 to 10 minutes to cook chicken without bones and approximately 12 to 15 minutes per side for chicken with bones. Again, poke the chicken to see if it is fully cooked and ready to serve.
How to Grill Chicken on Electric Grill
When cooking chicken, you will want to make sure your chicken is at room temperature before putting it on the grill. Start the chicken on a lower temperature, and bring it up. Wait until it’s cooked for about ten minutes or so before you add your sauce if you are using one. Ultimately, you can get creative and there are no set rules, but we find this is the best way to ensure your chicken is grilled perfectly every time.
Marinating chicken before grilling is a great way to ensure it stays juicy and keeps its flavor while being grilled. This is a good way of cooking chicken on an indoor grill in order to get an incredible flavor and cook conveniently. You can marinate in whatever you’d like; but we suggest a lemon, lime, or orange juice base. From here, add your seasonings and marinade each side of the chicken. Let it sit for about an hour in the refrigerator to let it soak in. Then grill the chicken until done.
