There is nothing that I enjoy more than the nice grilled steak or some grilled chicken. Sadly, as the weather cools it gets tougher and tougher for me to go out onto the deck to barbecue, even though I enjoy grilled foods much more than foods cooked in the oven.
I was ecstatic when I saw that Hamilton Beach Canada had a new Searing grill out, and I was eager to try it.
There are so many great features on this appliance, but the biggest one…is the fact that I don’t have to go outside in the cold to grill. I can stay inside where it’s nice and toasty have wonderfully prepared grilled foods.
I was actually taking aback at how light it is when it first arrived, and the ease of putting it together so you can get grilling! All the removable pieces are dishwasher safe [plate is non-stick] so easy to get it ready and is a quick cleanup afterward. They also lets you watch your food as it cooks – no need to keep lifting the lid! I have a feeling this is going to get a lot of use this winter.
I also love the portability of the grill, we can take it up north to the chalet in the winter and I can have fabulous grilled food while we’re up there and I don’t have to worry about any contamination from the outdoor grill!
Win/win for me!
I tried this easy grilled chicken recipe to test it out… I actually did half the chicken in the oven and half on grill just to see how good it was. Of course, the grilled chicken won out…it was beautifully done and the meat was very moist, and cannot beat difference grilling makes in taste! The high searing temperature locks in juices and flavour.
Honey Garlic mustard chicken
2-3 pounds of chicken – thighs and drumsticks are great.
4-5 tablespoons of mustard [ I used regular but can use dijon for a bit more flavour]
2 tablespoons honey
1-2 cloves minced garlic
Mix all ingredients together, place chicken in large ziploc bag and add the honey mustard mixture. make sure all surfaces of chicken are thoroughly coated. place on grill or in an oven safe dish. Cook for 30 -40 min until cooked though depending on size of chicken pieces. Enjoy!
Now as a holiday treat… one of my lucky readers is going to win one of these great grills from Hamilton Beach. How cool is that?
