Recipe: BBQ Chicken

Angelfood Ingredient: 4lb Leg Quarters

Also need: BBQ sauce of choice

Wash chicken and pat dry. With a sharp knife, make small cuts in chicken pieces. Spoon barbecue sauce over chicken and let stand for at least 1/2 hour. Heat broiler or grill. Cook about 30-45 minutes, depending on size of chicken pieces.

Baste frequently with barbecue sauce. Test for doneness by pricking chicken with skewer; if juice runs clear, chicken is done. Heat remaining sauce and serve separately.

Re: January Angelfood Recipes
Thanks for this thread :) I'd love to know how you mamas are planning to prepare your pork riblets!

I made chicken fajita soup tonight!

Angel Food Ingredients: chicken fajita pack, 1/4 bag of pinto beans, onion (chopped), corn tortillas

Also need: chicken broth or water/boullion, 1 cup rice, 1-2 carrots, bell pepper or chiles, your seasonings of choice; I like cumin :)

1. Quick-soak your beans (bring to boil for 2 minutes, then turn off heat, cover and let them soak for 2 hours).
2. Bring beans to a boil then down to a simmer until they're tender (several hours).
3. Add chicken broth or water/boullion
4. Saute your chicken with the chopped onion and peppers.
5. About 15 minutes before serving, add your chicken, veggies, rice, and spices and continue to simmer until rice is tender.
6. Serve with tortillas (if you want to get fancy, cut them into strips, spray with cooking spray, top with salt, sprinkle on some fresh lime juice and bake until slightly crispy)

Fun and optional garnishes: cilantro, shredded cheese, sour cream, avacado, salsa, lime wedges, fresh pico de gallo, or whatever else strikes you!

If you have leftovers, you can drain off the liquid and use the leftover mixture to stuff burritoes!

Re: January Angelfood Recipes
as an adapted pulled pork sandwich....

I put the pork riblets that I got in the AF box into the crockpot with a cup of water and 2 beef boullion cubes. It cooked on high for about 3 hours, and I took it out and shredded it up with my fingers. I was about to put the bbq on it when I realized...hey that looks like the really expensive bbq you buy! I salt/peppered it and served it on buns with homemade white sauce, which is mayo, vinegar, lemon juice, salt & pepper and DH went WILD over it!! :D

That night we had bbq sandwiches, green beans & cajun potatoes - just potatotes quartered into a dish and baked with seasonings sprinkled! Yum!
