Grilling Indoors

grilled cilantro chicken with lime

I love to BBQ. I grew up in Florida where we took year-round grilling for granted. Right now I don’t have my own grill. I live in an apartment and they are not allowed. My family and I suffer through BBQ withdrawal symptoms during the winter months and have to beg for invites come summertime. When we decided to make this month’s Kosher Recipe Link Up about grilling, I realized that many of you out there, like me, don’t have a grill either, so I will just have to give you something that has the taste of BBQ without the actual grill, the best part is, it is an all year round recipe no matter where you live.


There are two ways to get a BBQ look and taste. The first is a grill pan, one of those heavy cast iron type pans that take up two burners (like the one pictured here from amazon), one side is a griddle and one is a grill. Those are the best, but mine I made dairy to make grilled veggies with dairy meals when I had the use of an outdoor BBQ. Now I have to get a meat one. Until then, I use option 2, the broiler with a broiler pan. The pan allows the drippings to fall down and the broiler gives a char just like the grill. That is how I made this flavorful Cilantro Grilled Chicken with Lime, healthy and delicious offering only 225 calories a serving using boneless chicken thighs. They are so juicy and don’t dry out as easily as the breasts (which would only save about 20 calories anyways) and are still skinless and boneless. I know you will love them!

Here's a bonus recipe.

You should also try my Adana Kebab, ground lamb shish kebab made in the broiler with excellent results.

Do you have any indoor Grilling tips to share?
