Hi friends! Do you love to grill in the summer? I don’t know what it is, but once the warmer weather hits, I crave grilled dinners, pasta salads and fresh fruit. They’re summer staples! But you know what I don’t love? Always having to fire up the big grill, especially when it’s just dinner for the family. So when I came across the Indoor Outdoor Portable Grill by Pampered Chef I knew we had to have it!
This compact grill really takes the intimidation out of grilling! It converts from electric for indoor or outdoor use, to charcoal for outdoor use. The innovative grill grate covers the electric coil to reduce smoke. With the turn of a knob, you can customize the grill’s electric cooking temperature. Safety features include a locking lid, stay-cool handle, and nonslip legs. And bonus, there is a removable drip tray for easy cleaning and the grill grate is dishwasher-safe! And with any new grill, you need new grill tools right? Naturally, I decided to give the Pampered Chef Grilling Tool Set a go as well.
So we fired this baby up and gave it a try! I love trying different ways to marinate chicken, especially when we’re grilling so this time I created a tasty Pineapple Lime marinade that my family went crazy for! You can find the recipe for the marinade and chicken at the end of the post, but the main ingredients are pineapple juice and lime juice with some oil, vinegar, garlic and spices. I simply whipped up the marinade in the morning, poured it over some chicken thighs and drumsticks (I removed the skin) in a plastic bag and let that marinate all day.
