I am doing my best to soak in every single minute of this summer. Lingering by the pool, sitting outside listening to summer storms, playing corn hole in the front yard - all of my usual summer traditions. I am sure not going to miss out on any of my favorite summer eats this year either - corn on the cob, barbequed chicken, watermelon, summer salads. We had every one of those summer treats on our dinner table last night and it was DELICIOUS. Summer on a plate.
I found this recipe for Barbequed Chicken in Cook's Country magazine. This recipe just screamed summer and it was the perfect recipe for my summer dinner menu.
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon white pepper
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
4 pounds chicken thighs
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons barbeque sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth
7 cloves garlic (6 sliced thin, 1 minced)
3 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Tablespoons hot sauce
2 Tablespoons apple jelly
Transfer chicken to a disposable pan. Pour broth sauce over chicken and place on grill for 30 minutes.
Remove chicken from sauce and place directly on grill grates. Brush with jelly sauce and continue to grill until cooked through.
Toss in a few summer classics like corn on the cob, watermelon and a fresh green salad and voila - you've got yourself a perfect summer meal.
All that was missing was a giant slice of strawberry shortcake to finish off this fabulous meal.
