I think you can have only one action (either -exec or -print), 
but not sure about it. Anyway, my first instinct when things are 
getting to be more complicated is to use while cycle, like this:

find . |while read FILE ; do
    if grep "$FILE" '{}' >/dev/null 2>&1 ; then
        echo "$FILE" >> ./found_files
