: Another thing - it was on the news recently about the Grilled Chicken burger, I'm not sure what the exact story was because I didn't watch the news, but it was something about the grilled chicken burger not really being grilled because the grill lines are painted on prior to the stores cooking them.

Yeah, and contrary to the long-running slogan, M&M's candy WILL melt in your hand, particularily if you have a fever and you sqeeze them really tightly. Check any car dealer's newspaper advertisements for the disclaimer: "Photographs are for illustrative purposes only."

Back to the chicken: In the US, most restaurant grilled chicken comes from Tyson foods, who packs pre-grilled chicken for use by big chains and small independents alike. Now, painting the little black lines on each processed chicken breast with a little paintbrugh sounds like a tremendously dull job to me. Just so you know, the chicken breasts are marinated, the lines are burned in place with a grill, then the chicken breasts are frozen and shipped to your local fast feeder. A few chicken breasts are removed from the freezer and thawed in the refrigerator, but they can be heated from frozen in a pinch. The chicken is merely reheated on the griddle, and the black cinge marks stay in place.
