Corn Meal Crusted Chicken

I had planned to make this post long time ago. But it just got delayed. 'A' used to tell me about George foreman grill quiet often. The grill is known to remove excess fat from the meat. The most common use of a George Foreman Lean Mean Fat Grilling Machine is to cook cuts of meat, but you can also grill vegetables, make quesadillas, and fry bacon on these machines. It's best to fry bacon . You will get a shock when you see the amount of fat stripping from the bacon while you grill it. If you are frying it in a normal sauce pan remember that all those excess fat are going to your stomach. The grill focus on healthy cooking and it has got an easy-to-use grilling function. The smaller version of Foreman's Lean Mean Fat-Reducing Grilling Machine is terrific for preparing fast, low-fat meals--particularly for couples or single people. I love grilled food. You can eat it guilt - free. 


4 chicken breast halves, boneless/skinless
 2 large eggs
3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Dash of salt, if desired
1/4 cup grated fat-free Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons lime juice


Rinse and drain the chicken breasts. Set two shallow bowls or pie plates on the counter. Place the egg  in one bowl and the cornmeal mixed with the lemon pepper, red pepper, salt, and cheese in the other bowl. Rub the chicken with the lime juice. Dip one piece of chicken at a time in the egg and then coat evenly with the cornmeal mixture. If you have time, place on a wire rack to dry out a little.

Make sure the grill is very hot. Spray the grill fairly heavily with vegetable oil cooking spray, then place the chicken on the grill and spray the top of each piece lightly. Cook for 8 to 15 minutes, turning as desired, until the chicken is tender and lightly browned.

Serve with salsa if desired.
