Always marinate skirt or flank steaks

Steaks from the plate, like skirt or flank steak, are excellent choices for the grill and they’re available at budget prices. But, you always want to marinate them first. These steaks are filled with tough muscle fibers that break down nicely when they encounter the acidic ingredients in a marinade.

Marinated chicken on a barbecue

Barbecue chicken consists of chicken parts or entire chickens that are barbecued, grilled or smoked. There are many global and regional preparation techniques and cooking styles. Barbecue chicken is often seasoned or coated in a spice rub, barbecue sauce, or both. Marinades are also used to tenderize the meat and add flavor. Rotisserie chicken has gained prominence and popularity in U.S. grocery markets. Barbecued chicken is one of the world’s most popular barbecue dishes.

Various techniques exist for cutting poultry for barbecuing, including skewering, butterflying, halving quartering and using individual pieces. Many diverse cooking and flavoring techniques exist for this dish.

Regional variations in the preparation of barbecue chicken include culinary variance in preparation, cooking and saucing techniques.

In Alabama, egg or mayonnaise-based white sauces are sometimes served with barbecue chicken at the table as a dipping sauce. This has been described in the book 1,000 Places to See in the United States and Canada Before You Die as being more common in Northern Alabama, particularly in Northwest Alabama. Per the same book, barbecue in Southern Alabama tends to have sauces that are tomato-based.

California Pizza Kitchen, a restaurant chain founded in California, is the original creator of barbecue chicken pizza.

In the U.S. state of Georgia, slightly sweet sauces with mustard are used on chicken.

Another barbecued chicken dish

In Western North Carolina, thin tomato and vinegar based sauces are common.

In rural Pennsylvania, egg is sometimes used to make the skin on the chicken crispy. In Kentucky, chicken is a favorite meat for barbecuing along with lamb and mutton.

In Texas, barbecue usually refers to ribs, but many barbecue restaurants in Texas serve barbecue chicken seasoned with rub, sometimes called “dalmatian rub”, that is made of salt and pepper. The chicken is often served with a very hot vinegar or even beer-based barbecue sauce. Texas barbecue tends to be slow-smoked, rather than grilled.

Beer-can chicken involves the indirect grilling a whole chicken on a barbecue grill using steam from beer (or another liquid) as a flavoring agent and cooking medium.

Slow-Cooked Pork Tacos with Chipotle Aioli
Follow this pork taco recipe as is to serve four and you’ll have enough shredded pork leftover to make it again next week. It’s so good, however, that we recommend doubling the rest of the ingredients and inviting over four more friends to enjoy everything right away!………………………..

Chorizo-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin
This mouthwatering pork tenderloin is stuffed with chorizo, cheese and spinach. Once you master stuffing a pork tenderloin–you just cut the tenderloin almost in half lengthwise, pound it, fill it and tie it closed with kitchen string–you won’t want it any other way. Serve with sautéed red peppers tossed with capers, parsley and sherry vinegar and roasted potatoes. To double this recipe, use 2 skillets or brown the tenderloins one at a time………………………………..

Mustard-Maple Pork Tenderloin
Pork tenderloin is about as lean as it comes so it’s a great healthy option, but it shouldn’t be overcooked as it can dry out. Maple and mustard make a sweet-and-savory mahogany-colored sauce. A delicate note of sage gives it a wintery touch. Fresh thyme or rosemary also work if you prefer. Serve with barley, roasted squash and a Pinot Noir………………………………

Freeze meat in a marinade……………..

Save time and have them in a pinch – Stash meal-size portions in freezer bags with a simple marinade (we like grated ginger with some toasted sesame oil and soy sauce). Thaw in the fridge in the a.m. so dinner is ready to cook when you get home. For an easy meal, roast with vegetables on a baking sheet at 400°F.

Ultimate Grilled Chicken Recipes
Fresh ideas for grilled chicken plus amazing recipes for brines, rubs, marinades, sauces and more.

Grilled Chicken Thighs with Jerk Sauce
Jamaican jerk sauce traditionally uses Scotch bonnet peppers; here, we substitute jalapeños for a milder flavor. The jerk sauce serves as both a marinade and a sauce for meaty grilled chicken thighs. This healthy grill recipe takes just 30 minutes of active time, so as long as you plan ahead and factor in the marinating time it’s perfect for a quick weeknight dinner or easy weekend BBQ………………….

Spatchcocked Chicken with Sweet and Spicy BBQ Rub
In this whole grilled chicken recipe, the backbone is removed and the chicken is flattened then grilled under the weight of 2 bricks–which enables it to cook quickly and evenly. The homemade rub recipe makes enough to prepare 2 pounds of boneless chicken or 4 pounds of bone-in chicken, but you can easily double or triple the recipe and store the extra in an airtight container for up to 3 months so you can have it on hand throughout the grilling season………………

Grilled Chicken Wings with Carrots and Celery
These grilled chicken wings get that wonderful mix of sweet and spicy flavors from honey and harissa. Most grills cook unevenly, so it’s important to keep these wings moving around to ensure crispy skin without burning. Traditional chicken wing sides–carrots and celery–cook right alongside the chicken for a quick dinner on the grill……………………

Its a whole Chicken marinated in a zesty Cuban style herb and lime juice marinade, and then roasted. Spicy Rice or a Potato Dish would go great with this! The recipe comes from the CooksRecipes website where you’ll find a huge and fantastic selection of Diabetic Friendly Recipes. Enjoy and make 2019 a Healthy One! https://www.cooksrecipes.com/index.html

Spicy Cuban Rotisserie Chicken
A whole chicken is marinated several hours in a zesty Cuban-style herb and lime juice marinade and roasted on a rotisserie spit.

Recipe Ingredients:
1 large broiler-fryer whole chicken
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 shallot, minced
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Cilantro sprigs for garnish
Lime wedges for accompaniment

Cooking Directions:
1 – Truss chicken or tie drumsticks together.
2 – In large glass bowl, mix together lime juice, olive oil, shallot, garlic, lime peel, oregano, salt, cumin and pepper. Place chicken in mixture, turning to coat completely. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight, turning chicken several times.
3 – At cooking time, pour off marinade and place chicken on rotisserie spit. Cook about 1 1/2 hours or until drumsticks move easily in their sockets and juices run clear. When done, a meat thermometer inserted into the thigh will register 180°F (85°C). Remove chicken from rotisserie and place on rack; let sit about 10 minutes.
4 – Transfer chicken to platter and discard strings. Garnish with cilantro sprigs and serve with lime wedges.
Makes 4 servings.

Here’s a hint I always use…….

Marinating is a cinch if you use a plastic bag. It is easy to turn and cleanup is a breeze – just toss the bag in the trash.
