Tonight I am going to do chicken. The weather is really nice with temps to reach near 80. So tonight it will be bbq’ed chicken.. For the two of us a whole chicken has several advantages. Foremost is the division of the chicken. I like dark meat and Cheryl likes white so that works out nicely using a whole chicken. Another advantage of a whole chicken is seasoning.. I can put what i want on my “parts” and Cheryl can season the breast meat how she likes. When bbq’ing I cut the chicken in half under the breasts to accommodate the above mentioned division if we plan on what to do with the leftover parts i.e. bbq chicken salad etc.. If we want to use some chicken in a recipe that would not require bbq’ing I cut the chicken vertically through the breasts one breast one each half which allows for the use of the non-bbq’ed meat in another manner, and keeps the white vs. dark meat division in tact. 😀
Chicken is a great value, being able to find it at Costco at a price of $.99 a lb everyday and often down to $.79 cents in the local supermarkets. We also have a “set it and forget it” rotisserie which we use,mostly for chicken, when grilling is not a good scenario.
How do you like chicken…? Let us know.
