The George Foreman Grill & Grilled Chicken Parmesan Panini

We have been George Foreman grillers for awhile. Hubby is in charge of the big outdoor grill, but the small indoor grill is all mine.

Love cooking all of our meats on here, as the fat just runs down the slopes…goodbye grease.

There are many things I really like about the George Foreman and a couple of new things I’ve learned from doing this review.

First, is that it is dishwasher safe! The grill plates are removable. Easy peasy! While scrubbing in the sink wasn’t so bad I am now delighted to stick them in the dishwasher.

Second, it’s adjustable! Floating hinges gives you the ability to adjust height to accommodate a wide range of foods. So glad for this option because it is just what I needed for my recipe today!

I am part of the The George Foreman Grill: Show Us Your Grill Skill Recipe Contest and I created a recipe called:

Grilled Chicken Parmesan Panini

1+ lb of boneless, skinless, chicken tenderloins marinated in Italian Seasoning.

Make fresh tomato sauce:

  • 2 medium garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 (28 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon sugar
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

In a large saucepan, heat garlic and 2 Tbs. oil over medium-high heat until garlic starts to sizzle. Stir in tomatoes, basil, oregano, sugar, a pinch of salt and a few grinds of pepper. Bring to a simmer until sauce thickens. 10 to 12 minutes. Cover and keep warm. It makes more than you need so you’ll have enough for another meal.

While that is bubbling on the stove, grill your chicken on the George Foreman. With the grill on both sides, it will be done within just a few minutes!

Take the bread of your choice. I used a French loaf that was on sale and cut into sub size.

I laid two chicken tenderloins in each sandwich, topped with my homemade sauce, sprinkled with parmesan cheese and as much shredded mozzarella cheese as you like.

Now to make it a panini, I buttered the outside of each side of the sandwich.

Lay the entire sub in the George Foreman Grill and let it do its job. When the bread is toasted, your meal is complete.


Voila! Perfection! And oh so yum!


Do you have George Foreman grill? What do you like to make?


I received the George Foreman to make my recipe and participate in the contest.

  • I have gone thru 2 of his grills. 1 dropped/broke and the other one just stopped working altogether. They were nice for chicken when they did work though. I won't buy another one again.
  • That looks good! I do have a foreman grill, I mainly use it when I'm cooking chicken or when I need an easy dinner for me and the kids. When hubby is home he likes to use the big grill outside :)
  • Yum! I have added parmesan to my paninis only a few times and did not like that. Anyway, will definitely try your recipe now!
