The weather is getting warmer, so it's time to dust off the grill. Jill offered to make dinner one night last week, and I was happy to let her. She purchased some chicken thighs and legs --complete with bones and skin, what?? She assured me they would be delicious. Now I'm not much into bones and skin but I trust her judgement. She baked the chicken at 400 until its internal temperature reached 165 degrees (depending on how much chicken and what kind of cut, it will take around 30 minutes). This rendered much of the fat. She then finished it on the grill over high heat for 4-6 minutes on each side, brushing it with 1 cup of Sweet Baby Ray's mixed with a few tablespoons of A1 steak sauce...the A1 adds a fun "tang" to the sauce. The chicken is already cooked through, so you are just grilling it to crisp up the skin and let the sauce caramelize.
The end result was delicious. It was finger lickin' good! The skin was crispy and the chicken was perfectly cooked. This budget friendly meal was a hit with friends and family, perfect to feed a crowd. Just make sure there are plenty of napkins available!
