Trying to learn how to use the Cuisinart Griddler to grill chicken? The Griddler is a convenient kitchen tool that makes it easy to grill chicken. Follow these steps to use the Cuisinart Griddler to grill chicken.

Season and marinate chicken in dressing in a large plastic food storage bag for 20 to 60 minutes in the refrigerator.

Prepare to grill the chicken when it is done marinating. Turn the Cuisinart Griddler on to “Grill” on the "Medium High" setting. Spray the top and bottom grill surfaces with a cooking spray. Allow it to heat it for a few minutes. Put the drip container on the side to catch running juices.

Arrange the chicken breasts on the grill. Close the grill and press it down firmly. Put the setting on “Medium” and set a timer for 2 to 3 minutes.

Lift the grill press after 2 to 3 minutes to check the progress. If parts of the chicken appear raw, then press the grill handle down firmly for 10 to 30 seconds.

Continue to check on the chicken every minute or so. It’s done when the juices run clear from the drip cup, and the chicken is cooked through.


  • Do not overcook or your chicken will be tough. Check that it’s ready by looking at the surface or cutting through the thickest part to check that the inside is not pink. Chicken should take about three to six minutes to grill.
