Lets make quick and easy barbecue chicken
on your outside grill.
Almost every bigger grocery store has its own deli now. Ours has one that you can buy cut up roasted chicken by the piece, for like six piece of dark meat it costs under $6. Buy what ever you like white or dark meat or a combo. Buy a bottle of barbecue sauce, I prefer the one with honey, but you get the flavor you think you will like. Mix about 1 cup barbecue sauce
with about 1/4 cup melted butter or margarine. If you get a barbecue sauce without honey add a tablespoon brown sugar for a nicer sweet coating. Get your charcoal hot, or start you gas grill, about 15 minutes before you want to eat. Lay the chicken on the grill and baste or spoon the barbecue sauce over it, let brown for awhile keep turning over and keep spooning the sauce on it until it becomes nice and brown. The chicken is already precooked
so the cooking time is so much shorter then starting with raw chicken and I doubt if even the best of cooks can tell the difference.
Easy Potato Salad
If you want to serve a potato salad with it here is a easy and tasty way. Boil
about 6 eggs. Buy two cans of potatoes I like the whole ones to cut up myself, but the sliced or dice will work just as well. Be very sure you rinse them off to get all the flavor of the juice they were in off and drain then well. slice the potatoes up, dice the hard boiled eggs up, into the potatoes. then mix 1 cup salad dressing, any kind, not the kind that is like ranch or french the kind that is like Mayo, but don’t use Mayo either. add 1 tablespoon mustard, 1 and 1/2 tablespoon sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. you can add chopped onion, celery or anything you may like to have in it. Thin the dressing down with about 1/4 cup milk, I like to use canned, but you can use any kind, cream, 1/2 and 1/2, even sour cream will work. Stir it in with the potatoes and you have a easy quick potato salad sprinkle the top with paprika, you can save back one egg and put wedges of egg on top. Or just put a little salt and pepper on top. Red pepper works too. Here is a tip on boiled eggs. Use the oldest eggs in your refrigerator first, they peel easier then the fresh eggs. bring them to a rolling boil for about 5 minutes then cover and turn off the burner, let stand for about 15 minutes, then let cold water run over them until they get cold. Hit the fat end of the egg on a hard surface and start to peel from that end, because usually there is a hollow spot there and it helps to get them to peel easier. you can boil the eggs the night before and keep them in the refrigerator. Drain the water off from them. Sometimes they will peel easier then too, and sometimes they are just a big pain to peel. I think sometimes it has to do with what the
chickens are fed and if they are new egg layers. Anyway even if they are hard to peel they taste good. There is one other way that I use when they are hard to peel. Take a heavy knife and give them a whack right in the middle of the egg, then use a table teaspoon to scoop the egg out, its works quite well, just be sure to rinse off the whites to make sure all the shell
