AAAAARRRRRRRGGHHHHHHH!!!! So some of you might know that I was on a protein shake/cheeseburger diet and things were going great but now that its winter i dont like goin out to barbecue cause it so cold. So I bought a george foreman grill a week ago and things were good (I decided to make chicken breasts for a change and they were AWESOME!) but then I made a burger and omg did that thing create a monstrous creation. So awful! I cant stand burgers now! wtf!!!!!!!!!! I cant eat chicken all the time cause its lik $11 for 10 of em and they are only22g protein each, and like 120cals. I would need to eat so many meet my 190g a day! GAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

How lean is the chicken you're eating? I pay about 6-7 dollars for 3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts. George foreman grills are horrible unless you have no way to grill/broil your food.

try getting some of those cheese string things, they got about 9G of protein and you can eat about 4 or 5 and not feel full. There cheap and I think there must be like 12 in a bag.
or just pig out on a PB jar.

105 cals, 1g Fat, 1g Carbs, 22g Pro

What?! For $1.69/lb for skinless/boneless I can get 18 breasts for like $15. If you buy split breasts (with skin/bone) for $0.69, you get almost 3 times as much. Each breast is 6-8oz (200-270ish cals), so 40-60g protein. Cheaper yet, buy leg/thighs for $0.25/lb or less if you're on a budget. Of course, if you're on a budget, milk, eggs, and tuna are the way to go.

As for the foreman type grills, for a single guy, or a couple, they rock. 8 minutes on 1-2 semi-frozen breasts and you're done. Toss 2 in the grill, shower like a man, remove cooked breasts, add two more breasts, shave, brush teeth, remove 2nd pair of cooked breasts and now you have 4 cooked breasts. 16 mins, you are shaved, showered, and ready for chow (8 servings of chicken, 160g protein).

He's from Canada - the pricing is different. But I agree, milk, eggs and tuna on a budget. Oh and whole chickens....they're awsome.

It's easy to overcook anything on the Foreman. That said I couldn't live without one.

In my opinion, the foreman is king in chicken preparation!

I used to cook on one but it dries out the chicken so bad. How do you prevent that?

Don't cook it as long.

I've also always had trouble with the Foreman Grill, they dry everything out.

All I do for chicken breasts now is add 5-6 of them in a circular pan.
Preheat oven to 350-375.
Put a bit of olive oil over each of them..maybe a capfull or 2.
Put in for 15 min, take out baste w/ the water/olive oil... Add Paprika, Garlic Powder and whatever else you want.
Do that for 1hr and they are good to go.

Sure its a bit longer then a GF grill, buuuuuut they are full of flavor and I have 0 problems with them being dried out.
