Several members mentioned recipes they'd saved on the "Favorite Chicken Recipes" thread that's since fallen off. Here it is. (I hope.)

We've all done a lot of cooking since then, so maybe there are some new recipes to add. Carol

Jessie, we love chicken too. I have alot of favourites. Probably the easiest and the number one favourite is a traditional roast chicken dinner, High Heat method, with leftovers going to hot chicken sandwiches with french fries.

Here are a few more of our favourites:

broth to a bowl with the chicken and set aside.

Make sauce, by melting butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add flour

and then cooking stirring frequently with a whisk, until the mixture

develops a nutty smell, about 2 minutes. Slowly add half the broth to

the roux, whisking constantly until the sauce thickens. Add the rest of

the broth along with the cream and chopped thyme. Increase the heat to

moderate and allow the sauce to simmer, stirring occasionally, until it

is well steeped with the flavour of thyme. Remove the pan from the

head. Add the vegetables and chicken to the sauce. Add frozen peas.

Season with salt and pepper.

Spoon filling into the pan. Cover with pastry, trucking in edge to seal

Chicken Breasts With Mushroon Duxelles


Source: Lucy Waverman

This flavorful and elegant chicken is stuffed with a combination of fresh and dried mushrooms. Because the breasts are stuffed under the skin, the stuffing moistens the chicken meat and keeps it juicy. use either dried porcini or dried Chinese mushrooms; they have the most flavor. The sauce can be made ahead of time and the breasts stuffed a few hours before baking.

6 Dried mushrooms

1/2 cup boiling chicken broth

reduced and the filling is thick. Season with salt and pepper.


Divide the filling in six portions. with your fingertips, make a

pocket between the skin and the flesh of each chicken breast. Stuff

Chicken - Pollo Alla Marengo


adjusted : from The Art of Eating Well, Pellegrino Artusi 1820 - 1911, Italy's Most Treasured Cookbook, Translated by Kyle M. Phillips III.

On the eve of the battle of Marengo, Napoleon's cook was unable to find the chuck wagons in the confusion and was forced to improvise, using stolen hens. The dish became known as chicken marengo, and tis said that Napoleon always enjoyed it, less for iteself than because it reminded him of a glorious victory.

Chop a young chicken into pieces at the joints. Saute it with 2 tablespoons butter and 1 of oil, season it with salt and pepper, and a pinch of nutmeg. Once the pieces are browned on all sides, drain off the fat, dust the meat with flour, add a minced clove or two of garlic, and add 1/2 cup of dry white wine. Add about 1/2 cup of broth over the chicken to keep it from drying out, cover it, and simmer it until done. Before serving it, sprinkle it with minced parsley and squeeze half a lemon over it.

This is the best Chicken Parmesan we have ever had.

Chicken Parmesan


Serve this with angel hair pasta and a fresh green salad, and savor a meal that is every bit as flavorful as Italian fare from a five star restaurant.

1 1/4 cups plain bread crumbs

5 TB grated Parmesan cheese, divided

1 TB chopped fresh parsley (or 1 tsp dried, crushed)

1 TB chopped fresh basil (or 1 tsp dried basil, crushed)

4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves

3/4 cup flour

2 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup olive oil

2 1/4 cups marinara sauce heated (can substitute store bought jarred pasta sauce)

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzerella cheese

. In a shallow dish, combine bread crumbs, 3 TB parmesan cheese, parsley

and basil.

Place chicken breasts between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Using a

mallet, pound chicken to 1/2" thickness.

Coat each breast in flour, shaking off any excess flour. Dip each

breast into beaten eggs and then into bread crumb mixture. Set aside.

Preheat over to 375 degrees. In a 12" skillet, heat oil over medium

heat until hot but not smoking. Carefully add chicken to pan, cooking

two pieces at a time. Cook 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown

on both sides. Remove chicken and drain on paper towels. (The chicken

can be made up to this point a day ahead. Wrap the chicken in foil and


Spread 1 cup of the marinara sauce in the bottom of a 9 x 12 " baking

dish. Place chicken over the sauce. Cover chicken with remaining

sauce. Sprinkle with mozzerella cheese and the remaining 2 TB of

Parmesan cheese. Bake 15 - 20 minutes or until cheese has melted and

sauce is bubbly.

Makes 4 servings.


Note: Can use 2 tsp each dried parsley and basil in place of fresh.

2 (28 oz) cans whole peeled tomatoes

2 TB olive oil

1 small onion, chopped

4 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

2 TB chopped fresh parsley

2 TB chopped fresh basil

Coarsely chop tomatoes; reserve liquid in cans. In a large saucepan,

over medium-low heat, combine olive oil, onion and garlic. Cook 2

minutes, stirring frequently. Add tomatoes and reserved juice, 1/2 tsp

salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Cover; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer

10 minutes. Stir in parsley and basil. Cover and simmer 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and cool.

When cooled, pass sauce through a food mill or blend using a blender or

food processor. Reheat just before serving. Season with salt and

pepper to taste.

Makes 6 cups of sauce.

Jessie, here's another favorite chicken dish of ours.

About 20 oz. of sweet peppers without the juice (sliced with seeds removed)

3 sliced hot cherry peppers or one whole that can slice into rings (packed in jar with oil) don't use the juice

Sauté above ingredients.


1 cup Parmigiano cheese

2 lbs. boneless chicken breast, cubed

1 can chicken broth

1 can tomato sauce (15 oz)

Cook for 20 minutes. Pour over 1 1/2 boxes of cooked Rigatoni pasta. Serve with fresh Italian bread.

Our family and friends make this at least twice a month it's so good.

Buffalo Chicken


Side note: This is a recipe that my hubbie makes

that he learned from his college roommate

from Buffalo, NY. It's very yummy!!

8 boneless chicken breasts

Mix together:

1 small bottle of Frank's hot sauce (6 oz.)

½ stick of melted margarine

3 cloves garlic (minced)

Dip chicken in bread crumbs, and fry in vegetable

oil until golden brown. Place in baking dish,

and pour the mixture over the breasts. Bake

for 25 minutes @ 350.

If you want it spicier, use less margarine.

If you want it milder, use more margarine.

Serve celery sticks with bleu cheese dressing as

a side dish.

The Chicken in caramel sauce..the only credit I can take is that I like it so much..Too Much posted the recipe here..

Here it is exactly as I found it..

Chicken in Caramel Sauce

This recipe is from the Washington Post, which adapted it from a recipe from the Slanted Door restaurant that appeared in a cookbook called The Secrets of Success: Signature Recipes and Insider Tips from San FranÂs Best Restaurants by Michael BauerÂ

1/2 C packed dark brown sugar

1/4 C water

1/4 C Asian fish sauce

3 T rice vinegar

1 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp soy sauce

1 tsp thinly sliced fresh ginger

1/2 to 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper (1/2 usually enough for me)

2 small chili peppers, fresh or dried, halved (I always use fresh)

1 T canola oil

1 shallot thinly sliced

1 1/2 - 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast or thigh meat, cut into bite-size pieces (can use a combo of light and dark meat, if you prefer)

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, water, fish sauce, vinegar, garlic, soy sauce, ginger, pepper, and chilis, and mix well. Set aside.

Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat (can also use a wok, but IÂve had better luck w/a skillet). Add shallot and cook, stirring, until brown, about 5 minutes. Add chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned on each side but not cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Stir the reserved sauce mixture and add to skillet. Bring mixture to boil, reduce heat to med-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is reduced by about half and the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Remove and discard the chili peppers. Remove pan from heat, set aside until sauce has thickened and cooled slightly, about 3 minutes.

Serve with rice.

Note: This is traditionally a Vietnamese dish. If you havenÂt cooked w/fish sauce before, youÂll notice that itÂs pretty stinky before itÂs cooked (!), but when the sauce is all together it gives it a really distinctive flavor that would be difficult to duplicate without it. IÂm able to get it in my local grocery store, but if you canÂt, then Asian markets will be sure to have it.

The dish can be more spicy or less, depending what you do w/the pepper and chilis. If I want it less spicy, I remove all the seeds from the chilis before adding them to the sauce. This time, I left most of the seeds in, and it was very spicy. Probably thereÂs a happy medium and it would be spicy enough w/about half the seeds. If you prefer it to be more sweet than spicy, remove all the seeds and use a bit less black pepper (even tho I like it spicy, I never need more than 1/2 tsp of pepper).

One problem I have is that the chicken is usually done faster than the sauce is reduced. It doesnÂt particularly suffer as a result, but it would probably help if I used a larger skillet so the chicken could brown faster while cooking for a shorter time.


I did use a larger skillet and it does the trick..I also add a touch of Sambal Oelek..Top w/ scallion sand or dried noodles..My like everyone elses:)

I also really like the Boursin Chicken from Linda in TN.. the nuts are the kicker..

Sol's Lemon Chicken is fresh and tasty..

Ann T' Poulet en croute more fancy,but delicious..

We like roasting a chicken in the convection..

As a young bride..I baked chicken wings.. then plopped them into a Chinese VH thickened sauce,we loved that!

Simply marinated on the BBQ..

Warm Chicken salads..

Chicken is just like the little black dress to me.

Thanks everyone! I've been copying and pasting away.....keep them coming!

Chicken is by far our favorite meat. I don't care for beef very much. I do eat an occasional hamburger with the works though. But other than that I could care less about beef. Pork is the same. We eat it, my hubby loves it. I usually stick with the other things we're having with it such as salad, or choke a little of it down. Blah.....

We eat A LOT of chicken. "My name is Jessie, and I am a chickaholic," (SOB, SNIFFLE). I LOVE fried chicken!! I'm ashamed to say we eat it at least once a week. Yes I know. My BF tells me when I die, they will pluck feathers from my a......well you get the idea.

Monique I agree, it is just like a little black dress. (Although between you and me, I hate dresses.)

Thanks everyone,

Here's a favorite, even my pickiest kid eats it: (with my notes in () I always change recipes!)



Chicken Cacciatora (from 365 Ways to Cook Chicken)

3 tb oil (i used olive and only 2 tb)

1 chicken (3lb) cut up (I used 4 boneless breasts)

1 med onion sliced

3 garlic cloves minced (I used more!)

1/2 lb. mushrooms sliced (I used more cause I love them)

1 bell peper cut in 1" chunks (i used a red bell pepper)

1 16oz can tomatoes

1 8oz can tomato sauce

1 tsp dried organo

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper (more because we love black pepper)

in large frying pan heat oil over medium. brown chicken on all

sides, about 10 minutes. remove and drain on paper towels

add onion, garlic, mushrooms and bell pepepr to the pan and saute

until onion and pepper are softenend, about 5 minutes. Add

remaining ingredients, stir well.

return chicken to pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat. Cover and

simmer 30 minutes, until chicken is tender. (I only simmered about

15 -20 because the breasts cook quicker. then I removed the breasts

and reduced the sauce for about 5-10 minutes because i like it

thicker. put the meat back into the pan to heat through)

I served it over jasmine rice. yum!


RE: Favorite Chicken Recipes

Posted by: wizardnm (My Page) on Tue, Apr 11, 06 at 8:24

Jessie, here's a couple of other favorite chicken recipes that I love.

Asian Marinated Grilled Chicken Breasts

5 LBS boneless skinless chicken breasts


1 C veg. oil

¼ C sesame oil

¾ C soy sauce

1/3 C minced garlic

¼ C minced ginger

2/3 C minced cilantro

5-6 green onions, thinly sliced

1 tsp Black Pepper

Combine marinade in a container large enough to hold the chicken. Refrigerate 4+ hours. Overnight is fine.

Remove chicken from marinade and grill over med. hot fire. Done when thermometer registars 160°.

Note: If only a small quanity of chicken is needed, you can divide chicken and marinade into freezer bags and freeze until needed. Chicken will be ready to cook as soon as thawed.

Leftover cooked chicken makes a great sandwich either cold or reheated in the microwave. I like it heated with provelone, sliced chicken, tomato, lettuce and mayo.

Also makes a great Asian Salad. Chop the chicken, lay over greens, sprinkle with mandarine oranges, roasted sunflower kernals, rice noodles and a sweet sour dressing.

Roasted Chicken Salad Personal All Time Favorite, developed and sold for years when we had the deli. Preheat oven to 400° Coat a rimmed baking pan with cooking spray. Place chicken breasts skin side up, spray with a little cooking spray and sprinkle with kosher salt. If using skinless, boneless breasts (I prefer skin\-on, more flavor) you should still spray and salt. Roast to 160° internal temp., about 45\-55 min, depending on size. Remove from oven, drain grease and cool. When cool enough to handle, remove skin and bones, cut into cubes about ½ inch in size. Mine are pretty irregular. Refridgerate until well chilled. Version \#1 DRIED CHERRY AND PECAN 4 C cut up chicken breast meat 2 C celery, sliced thin or coarsely chopped (I do mine in a food processor) 1 C dried red cherries 1 C coarsely chopped toasted pecans Toss together in a large bowl. Add dressing to desired consistancy. Better a little wet rather than dry, as chicken will absorb dressing as it sits. Dressing: 1½ C mayo (Hellman's preferred) ¼ C Kikkoman's soy sauce 1 tsp powdered ginger 1 tsp celery seed 1 tsp grd pepper Combine to use in dried cherry salad. Version \#2 HERB CHICKEN SALAD 4 C chopped chicken breasts 6 green onions 1 C loosely packed flat leaf (Italian) parsley 1 tsp salt 1 tsp black ground pepper 1\-2 C mayo Place chicken in a large bowl. Chop green onion and parsley very fine or pulse in food processor, add to chicken and toss. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and stir in mayo to desired consistancy. Add more salt and pepper if needed.

Can't wait to tell Ken your BF's comment about plucking feathers out of your you know what, he'll love that one! I make Ruthanna's Sherried Chicken, Nancy's Asian Marinated Chicken and Debbie's Chicken Riggies and they're all really terrific recipes. Here are a couple of my other favories, but I've saved my very favorite for last \- Linda in Tennessee's Lebanese Chicken \- its fantastic! CHICKEN SAVOY 2 1/2\- to 3\-pound chicken, cut into 6 pieces (two drumsticks, two thighs, two breasts with wings) 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic 1 tablespoon dried oregano Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste 6 to 8 teaspoons grated Locatelli or other Pecorino Romano cheese 1/2 cup red wine vinegar (preferably 7% acidity) In a 10 1/2\-inch cast iron skillet or other heavy, oven\-proof pan, arrange the chicken pieces skin side down and so that they do not touch each other. Sprinkle the chicken with garlic, oregano, salt, pepper and grated cheese, in that order. Place chicken in a preheated 500\-degree oven for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and pour on all the vinegar at once. It should sizzle. Return the chicken to the oven for another minute or so. Arrange chicken on a platter and pour on the sauce created by the vinegar. Serve immediately. (Woodie's Note: I don't really use 500 degrees because my smoke alarm will go off, so I usually do 450 for 40\-45 minutes, depends on which chicken pieces I'm using \- we like dark meat the best. I also think that I use more vinegar, I don't measure, just pour it on, and I use any kind of vinegar, balsamic or red wine, doesn't really matter.) TUSCAN CHICKEN Recipe courtesy Rachael Ray 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast tenderloins Salt and pepper 3 tablespoons extra\-virgin olive oil 6 cloves garlic, crushed 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar 2 tablespoons butter 2 shallots, chopped 6 sprigs fresh rosemary, finely chopped 2 tablespoons flour 1 cup dry white wine 2 cups beef broth (yes, beef broth) Heat a large, deep skillet over medium high heat. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Add 2 tablespoons extra\-virgin olive oil, half the chicken pieces, and a couple of crushed cloves of garlic. Brown chicken 2 minutes on each side and remove from pan. Add remaining oil, another single turn of the pan, remaining chicken pieces and garlic. Brown chicken 2 minutes on each side and remove. Add vinegar to the pan. Let it cook off. Add butter, shallots, and rosemary to the pan and cook 2 minutes, add flour and cook 1 minute more. Whisk in wine, reduce 1 minute. Whisk in broth and bring liquids up to a bubble. Return chicken to the pan and simmer over moderate heat 7 to 8 minutes to finish cooking chicken through.

Pour soup mixture over chicken. Sprinkle with paprika and cover with foil. Return to the oven for 20 minutes. Serve over noodles. Serves 4. Note: If you are trying to use skinless, boneless chicken, you will need to use more butter to prevent burning.

The only change I made was to use less of the heavy cream! We like it so well that we have been having it a couple times a month. Tuscan Garlic Chicken Inspired by our Culinary Institute of Tuscany, this chicken pasta dish is layered with flavors! Servings: 6 cook: 30 min(s) Ingredients: 3 lb(s) Boneless, skinless chicken breasts 1 1/2 cup(s) Flour, plus 1 tablespoon 1 Tbsp Salt 2 tsp Black pepper 2 tsp Italian herb seasoning 1 lb(s) Penne pasta 1 Tbsp Garlic, chopped 1 Red pepper, julienne cut 1/2 cup(s) White wine 1/2 lb(s) Whole leaf spinach, stemmed 12 oz Heavy cream 1 cup(s) Parmesan cheese, grated Procedures: Preparing the Chicken: \- Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, salt, black pepper and Italian herb seasoning in a shallow dish. \- Dredge chicken in the mixture, shaking off any excess. \- Saute the chicken in batches, in a large, nonstick, ovenproof skillet \- with enough oil to coat \- over medium\-high heat for about two to three minutes on each side, or until golden brown and crisp. \- When finished, transfer the ovenproof skillet to a preheated oven at 350 degrees F. Cook for approximately 15 minutes or until cooked through and the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F. Preparing the Pasta: \- Cook pasta al dente (or according to package instructions). \- Drain and set aside until needed. Preparing the Sauce: \- While the pasta is cooking, heat 1/2 to 1 fluid ounce of oil in a sauce pan. Add the garlic and the red pepper and cook for approximately one minute. \- Slowly add remaining one tablespoon of flour and stir to combine. \- Next add the white wine and bring to a boil for about one minute. Add the spinach and the cream and bring to a boil. The sauce is done cooking when the spinach becomes wilted. Complete by stirring in the parmesan cheese. Preparing Tusacan Garlic Chicken Entree: \- Partly coat the pasta with the sauce, transfer to a large bowl (or individual dishes) and then top with the chicken, the remaining sauce and extra parmesan cheese. Serve and enjoy. It is much simpler than it looks. And good!

Cook until golden. \- Add tomatoes, chickpeas, prunes, liquid, spices, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil then cover and let simmer for 20 minutes. \- Add pear quarters, and cook until chicken is done and pears are soft.

CHiCKEN PICCATA SUBMITTED BY WOODIE This is they way I make chicken piccata, adapted from a newspaper article a few years ago. Maybe not very Italian, but we like this with mashed potatoes! 4 chicken breast halves, boned and skinned salt and pepper flour (enough for coating) 3 tablespoons butter juice of 1 lemon 1\-1/2 cups chicken broth 1/2 cup white wine Fresh chopped parsley, to garnish. Put a piece of waxed paper on the counter and place chicken on top. Use a meat pounder, the side of a saucer, the unsharpened side of a heavy knife or other object to pound the breast into a thin piece thatÂs uniformly thick (about an inch). Salt and pepper the chicken generously, then coat with flour. Melt butter in a large skillet and brown chicken on both sides. Remove chicken from skillet. Add lemon juice, chicken broth and wine. Boil down until itÂs about one\-half cup. Place chicken back in skillet, cover and cook 3 minutes. Remove cover and serve.

I am a fan of Chicken Piccata. I make it just like the above recipe but I add capers too. Chicken Marsala also. This one is good. Sorry I can't find the exact recipe on my hard drive but it is easy: 1 container Rondelle Garlic and Herb Cheese Chicken breasts, boneless, skinless (4) Butter Garlic Powder Bread Crumbs Eggs (2) Pound the chicken breasts down between wax paper, spread the Rondelle Garlic and Herb cheese over each breast (be liberal), roll the breasts up jelly roll fashion, dip in beaten eggs and then dip in bread crumbs. Place seam side down in casserole dish. Combine butter and garlic powder and melt. Pour over top of chicken breasts (be liberal with this also). Don't worry about any cheese coming out of the breasts \- it oozes into the butter/garlic mixture. Bake at 350 for about 45 mins. You will see them becoming golden brown. They are very good. \-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\- RE: Favorite Chicken Recipes Posted by: mqmoi (My Page) on Tue, Apr 11, 06 at 17:34 I'll post a few easy ones. Would also like to say that I like the Tuscan chicken that Woodie has posted too. I've made it several times now. EASY BAKED CHICKEN 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast haves Kosher salt, ground black pepper, garlic powder 4 tablespoons mayonnaise 4 tablespoons fresh grated Parmesan 1 cup fresh coarse bread crumbs or Panko Chopped parsley Season chicken lightly with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Combine mayonnaise and cheese. Coat each breast with 2 tablespoons mixture, putting more on top. Place in a lightly greased baking dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs and top with parsley. Bake at 400 until juice run clear (20 minutes). ASIAN DRUMSTICKS\-\-MQ Preheat oven to 375. Peel back the skin on 5\-6 drumsticks and discard. Rinse, pat dry, and place in a baking dish. Add: Peanut oil Tamari or soy sauce Fresh\-grated ginger and garlic Honey Cayenne Two capfuls of distilled or rice vinegar Turn with tongs to coat, baste 2\-3 times during cooking. Cook until a glaze is formed and meat separates from the bone. BAKED CHICKEN, ARTICHOKES, AND LEMON\-\-from Lee This is an easy and delicious after\-work meal. Whole cut\-up chicken (for two of us, I leave out the breasts.) I always remove the skin. 1 to 1 ½ cups rice 2\-3 cups chicken broth Artichoke hearts Garlic Lemon Garlic and Italian seasoning 1\. Brown the chicken or not. Season with salt and pepper. 2\. Cook the rice (if desired), in a Dutch oven with a little olive oil for a few minutes. 3\. Put the rice in a Dutch oven; put chicken pieces, seasoned with salt and pepper on top, fill in with artichoke hearts. 4\. If using water packed artichoke hearts, add some oregano or Italian seasoning sprinkled over the whole dish; if using marinated hearts, the seasoning that's in them should be enough. 5\. Add a bit of fresh, grated garlic. 6\. Slice a lemon and tuck the slices in around the chicken. 7\. Bake, covered at 350 for an hour, then check the chicken and rice. 8\. You may need to bake it a little longer covered. When the rice is cooked, uncover and increase temp to 375 and bake about 15 minutes to brown chicken. \-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\-\- RE: Favorite Chicken Recipes Posted by: trixxee62 (My Page) on Tue, Apr 11, 06 at 18:47 Incredibly simple (and only 6 ingredients).

It's best to use really good chili powder in this recipe \- preferably from ancho or pasilla chilies, or you can make your own chili powder from dried ancho or pasilla chilies. In the Yucatan, this is made with special oranges that are bitter, but combining regular oranges with limes gets a similar result. I feel like I'm in Mérida when I make this dish.

If you like roasted garlic put a whole head on top of the chicken. (Thanks Lindac!) Two hours is a little long in my book, I find 1 1/2 to be about the right time for me, give or take 5 \- 10 minutes depending on the size of the bird. Cajun or jerked rub is good on this too. David BEER CAN CHICKEN This odd recipe makes some of the most moist, succulent, flavorful barbecued chicken I've ever tasted. The secret: an open can of beer is inserted into the cavity of the bird, which is cooked upright on the grill. Besides being incredibly tender, the bird makes a great conversation piece. The recipe was inspired by the Bryce Boar Blazers, a barbecue team from Texas I met at the Memphis in May World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest. The proper beverage? Beer, of course. 1 large whole chicken (4 to 5 pounds) 3 tablespoons Memphis Rub\* or your favorite dry barbecue rub 1 can (12 ounces) beer 1\. Remove and discard the fat just inside the body cavities of the chicken. Remove the package of giblets, and set aside for another use. Rinse the chicken, inside and out, under cold running water, then drain and blot dry, inside and out, with paper towels. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the rub inside the body and neck cavities, the rub another 1 tablespoon all over the skin of the bird. If you wish, rub another 1/2 tablespoon of the mixture between the flesh and the skin. Cover and refrigerate the chicken while you preheat the grill. 2\. Set up the grill for indirect grilling\*\* placing a drip pan in the center. If using a charcoal grill, preheat it to medium. If using a gas grill, place all the wood chips in the smoker box and preheat the grill to high; then, when smoke appears, lower the heat to medium. 3\. Pop the tab on the beer can. Using a "church key" Âstyle can opener, make 6 or 7 holes in the top of the can. Pour out the top inch of beer, then spoon the remaining dry rub through the holes into the beer. Holding the chicken upright, with the opening of the body cavity down, insert the beer can into the cavity. 4\. When ready to cook, if using charcoal, toss half the wood chips on the c
