Spicy Lemon Chicken for Two from Everyday Good Thinking by @hamiltonbeach

A few months ago, we asked you what you wanted to see more of on Everyday Good Thinking, and we got a few responses that really stood out. One such request was for healthy meals and meals for one or two people.

We created this delicious grilled chicken for the singles and couples who made these requests, but it’s easily adaptable for groups of any size. If you need to feed a larger crowd, simply multiply the recipe as needed.

The key to the pronounced lemon flavor in the chicken is the gorgeous marinade that’s prepared in a single-serve blender. Lemon juice, lemon zest, paprika, red pepper, rosemary, salt and pepper get blended into a quick and easy marinade that has a little zip and a lot of zing.

Let the chicken marinate for at least half an hour with some lemon slices and rosemary. You can cook the chicken on an indoor grill like we did (It’s still too chilly for us to grill outside most days.) or you can use an outdoor grill – whichever you prefer is fine.

I love the sizzle sound when you place something on a hot grill and the impressive grill marks you get when searing the chicken and lemons. Adding a few wet sprigs of rosemary to the grill creates a slight aroma the chicken absorbs. Flip it halfway through cooking, and use a meat thermometer to make sure you’re reaching the correct cooking temperature without overcooking the chicken. With poultry of any kind, you’re aiming for 165°F at the center.

Our recipe calls for serving the spicy lemon chicken breasts with a side of rice and we think it goes well with vegetables like asparagus, green beans, broccoli, peas, Brussels sprouts or couscous. It makes just enough for two, but if you’re cooking for one, why not make the full recipe and save the leftovers for lunch the next day?

There are many other uses for leftover spicy lemon chicken, so why not make a big batch sometime? I’ve used the leftover chicken breasts to top Greek salads, pasta with cream sauce, on grilled panini sandwiches and in chicken salad. There’s really nothing it can’t do – and the flavor is great.

Hola! I’m Christina and my blog is Mama’s High Strung, which pretty much tells you what my life is like with five kids. Summer is here, so we’ve forgotten all about the polar vortex (Okay, I won’t even mention it!) and we’re ready to start living la vida alfresco.

I come from a big Latino family, so our summertime fiestas are filled with music, laughter and lots of food. While the grill is working overtime outside, I use Hamilton Beach’s Searing Grill inside to whip up amazing appetizers and side dishes loaded with outdoor flavor.

Center Stage: Searing Grill Cheese-Stuffed Bacon Jalapeño Poppers with @mamashighstrung on Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

These bacon-wrapped and cheese-stuffed jalapeño poppers will spice up any party with layers of delicious flavor. It’s important to scrape out the veins and seeds inside the jalapeño, because those little devils are what make jalapeños mouth-burning hot. (I usually wear gloves when I’m working with chile peppers – you should, too.)

Center Stage: Searing Grill Cheese-Stuffed Bacon Jalapeño Poppers with @mamashighstrung on Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach

Stuff the jalapeños with shredded Mexican-blend cheese. Alternatively, you can use cream cheese, Chihuahua cheese or string cheese. Make sure you really pack the cheese in the jalapeño so you keep all that delicious cheesiness inside.

Carefully wrap each stuffed pepper with one strip of bacon and secure it with a toothpick. Cook the jalapeños on the Searing Grill for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp and cooked through. Don’t forget to remove the toothpicks before serving.

I absolutely love cooking on the Hamilton Beach Searing Grill, but I have to tell let you in a secret. After a big party, you’ll really love being able to put the grill plate, lid and drip tray in the dishwasher!

It’s officially summer. (Hooray!) And that means everyone is grilling. The smells of charcoal, smoky iron grates, fire and charred beef waft through the neighborhood as though beckoning us to join in. Summer brings the rituals of marinating, searing, flipping and checking for perfect grill marks. Every kitchen and backyard has become a serious place for the pit master to showcase the barbecue he or she has been perfecting all year.

Things are no different at the Hamilton Beach headquarters, where the technique for perfectly grilled hash marks are discussed regularly in the Test Kitchen and favorite recipes are passed around like office memos. This recipe for Smoky Grilled Short Ribs is an office favorite. We went crazy for the tender meat and flavorful crust.

Grilled Tandoori Style Chicken Thighs recipe from Everyday Good Thinking, the official blog of @hamiltonbeach everydaygoodthinking.comTandoori chicken is a popular dish in India, normally cooked in a cylindrical clay oven called a tandoor. Since a tandoor oven can be a little hard to find in the U.S., we adapted the recipe for the grill to give it the traditional charred barbecue flavor.

The best things about grilling chicken thighs are the crispy skin, the slight char and the super moist and juicy meat. Tandoori chicken brings out all these tasty benefits, plus a flavorful yogurt marinade and curried spice blend that goes great with vegetable biryani, raita, cucumber salad and naan.

Summer is all about grilling, am I right? Sure, summer has a lot of other fun things going on, but if I had to choose my favorite thing about summer it would be the fast, easy and fresh food I get to enjoy thanks to my garden and grill.

With Hamilton Beach’s searing grill I can now take my grilling year-round, rain or shine. It’s small and sits right on my countertop, but grills like a pro!

Completely Delicious used the @hamiltonbeach Searing Grill to make these awesome Grilled Veggie Sandwiches with Goat Cheese Spread on everydaygoodthinking.com #grillit  @completedelish

My garden isn’t quite brimming with fresh produce just yet, but my grocery store and local farmers markets are. And these sandwiches are the perfect way to enjoy them. Here, I’ve used zucchini, mushrooms, red peppers and onions, but feel free to get creative. And while the grilled vegetables shine enough on their own, you could certainly add a grilled chicken breast or a few slices of crispy bacon if you just gotta have some meat.

The grilled veggies may be the star, but the herb goat cheese spread almost steals the show. Don’t skimp; it brings the whole thing together into one delicious summery sandwich. Perfect for lunch or an easy dinner, these grilled veggie sandwiches are sure to be a favorite all summer long.
