We had no where to go. No parties, no bonfires. The Challenges and I were craving chicken. My BBQ chicken and no one elses. We are a two meat family here...light and dark. Little Challenge has to have the white meat chicken breast, the other, Big Challenge, all the chicken legs one could possibly handle. My recipe is simple; fresh chicken sprinkled with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Place on grill that is medium to medium-low heat and let it cook slowly. About 10 minutes it, I slap it with some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce, the regular flavor. I know, don't put the sauce on until the end, but I disagree. My chicken slow roasts and the sauce slowly caramelizes on each piece leaving a really unique and sweet and savory flavor. The heat from below gently cooks the sauce onto the chicken, then, I flip it and douse it again in a gently smear of the lip-smacking sauce. This goes on for about 30 to 40 minutes until the chicken is cooked and the juices run clear.

It's the one last attempt on capturing summer before our carefree schedules turn to more structured ones including set meal times. I hope you didn't labor too much this past weekend and enjoyed summer. Fall and winter are also such spectacular seasons. Clean, crisp air, shorter days, cozy clothes.
Drop me a line and tell me how you spent your last bit of summer bliss....
