So yesterday I was home sick, been fighting a sinus infection for a week now and it seems the antibiotics are not really working when allergens are still in the air! Lose-lose situation if you ask me. Seems like as soon as you get rid of one cold another springs right back up. Maybe that is what the real meaning of spring is! LOL
Anywho, so yesterday I was fighting to get as much cleaned as I could to get rid of the allergens and the germs so I can start to really get better. I also had to prep for the game. Who does not want to watch the Hawks trample over the Preds? Was a great game, and I also had an awesome dinner thanks to moi.
So for the BBQ chicken i made last night what you will need are the following:
One whole fryer chicken, cut into quarters, I found mine on sale at Dominick’s for 77 cents/lb
BBQ or Chipotle rub, I used both since i had a little chipotle rub left from the pork chops last week
Bottle of your favorite BBQ sauce
Somethings as a side whether it is a veggie, Rice-A-Roni, mac and cheese, black beans, etc.
Take the chicken you just quartered, rinsed and patted dry, place the piece on to a cooking rack inside of a baking pan, sprinkle a bit of the rub onto the quarters and rub it in. Cover the chicken with some foil and place into an oven heated to about 350 to 400 degrees. Do not worry, you will not over cook the chicken here. Keep the chicken sealed and cook for about 30 minutes. Take the pan from the oven and remove the foil. be careful here so you do not burn yourself! Check the chicken and see how it is progressing. By now the chicken should be fully cooked and ready for some sauce and final cooking. Brush on some of your favorite BBQ sauce and place back into the oven with the heat turned all the way up if it is an electric stove. If your stove is gas, line your broiler pan with the foil you just took off the pan and place the chicken on the pan and brush the sauce on. Give it about 5 minutes and pull the chicken out and brush a second coat of sauce on and cook for about 3 more minutes then you are done!
With this dish you can serve up some black beans with a little garlic, cumin, salt and oregano. Heat and serve. You can also make a quick pot of mac and cheese or maybe some 4 cheese Rice-A-Roni. Having a serving of veggies is also a good idea, so bust out a can of corn, green beans or maybe some peas, drain and add about a tablespoon of butter, sprinkle of salt and pepper. Heat till done and serve.
I am sorry that the only picture I have of this dish is the leftovers i brought for lunch. I was more concerned about getting the meal done so i could watch the Hawks game which was utterly amazing! If you missed that game then you have probably missed one of the greatest games in this years playoff history! 🙂
