This recipe is a variation of one from "BBQ USA," and is a great grilled chicken recipe from a fair booth in New York called Baker's Chicken Coop, which became famous in the late 40s. Serve it with potato salad and a read leaf lettuce salad with tomatoes, cucumbers and Granny's Red French Dressing (#116968).
- 3 -4 lbs chicken quarters
marinade and baste
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup canola oil
- 1 cup tarragon vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons kosher salt
- 3 tablespoons dried rosemary
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
- 1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
- In a food processor, mix the egg with the oil and other ingredients.
- Marinate the chicken in one half of the marinade for 4-6 hours in the refrigerator.
- Place a drip pan half full of water in the bottom of half of the grill.
- Fire up the grill.
- Oil the grate.
- Cook the chicken indirectly for 40 to 60 minutes on the side of the grill where the drip pan is, basting and turning the chicken occasionally.
- Move the chicken to grill it directly for extra browning.
- The internal temperature of the chicken should be 180 degrees before serving.
excellent. been having this since i was a child. it is best if you use chicken quarters and use a meat injector with the sauce before marinating. cook low and slow over charcoal. if you have a gas grill, its best to prebake it on 350 for 30-40 min before grilling. never use white meat, it doesnt come out well.
i have been using this recipe for almost 50 years. it's the only way to bbq chicken as far as my family is concerned and all 3 of my children use it. i usually marinate the chicken for 2-3 days in a big tupperware container. the longer it sits the more flavor. i use the original recipe but will try this one some time this summer. sounds yummy. thanks.
This is my all time favorite barbecue sauce for chicken. My recipe calls for 2 cups cider vinegar and uses only 1 T poultry seasoning and 1/2 tsp pepper, and no lemon juice.
