Easy Lemon Grilled Chicken

With all my organizing and cleaning around here, I'm often finding kitchen appliances that I forgot I had.  It's that whole out of sight out of mind kinda thing.

While in the pantry this morning I came across my George Foreman grill.  Now I know some of you are probably gasping and shocked that I have one that hardly, if ever, sees the light of day, but I promise I'm going to try and use it more often.  Matter of fact, my boy already asked me to make some Grilled Cheese sandwiches on it for lunch tomorrow.

Anyway, back to tonight's dinner.  I had chicken drumsticks and wanted to make some sort of healthy grilled chicken, and this is what came of it.  Very tasty and the kiddos enjoyed it....not sure about the hubby as he hasn't had dinner yet, he's still at his Chemistry Class, so we'll see.

Chicken Drumsticks
1 Lemon
Salt and Pepper
Garlic powder
Olive oil

In a big ziploc bag, add the drumsticks, then squeeze in the juice of 1 lemon, salt and pepper, garlic powder to taste, and a bit of olive oil.  I didn't measure, just eyeballed it, but I would say about 1/4 cup or so.  Shake well to combine and let it sit in the refrigerator until dinner.

To make sure my chicken is cooked properly, I like to boil it first, so that is what I did.  I just removed it from the ziploc bag, and boiled it until cooked all the way.

Then I fired up my George Foreman Grill, and cooked the chicken in there for about 5 minutes on each side, just to get it a little seared.  So yummy!

Served it with potato salad, and that was dinner.  Quick, easy, delicious.
