NOTHING BEATS A BBQ CHICKEN DINNER WITH GARLIC BREAD, CUT-UP TOMATOES
This yummylicious dinner is for two and is a snap to make.
Succulent, juicy, BBQ chicken is hard to beat. The tangy, a bit spicy, a bit sweet, sauce is perfect. And that BBQ char on the chicken pairs perfectly with the crunchy garlic bread. Small cut up cherry tomatoes are sweet, with a little bit of salt and pepper.
What You Need
1 chicken, 3 to 4 pounds.
1/2 garlic clove.
Salt and pepper.
1 cup of tomato ketchup.
2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
2 tablespoons of salt.
1 tablespoon of pepper.
2 tablespoons of hot sauce.
10 cherry tomatoes.
Take your ketchup, sugar, salt, pepper and hot sauce and put into a small bowl. Mix well.
Taste and adjust your BBQ sauce to taste. You might want to add a bit of extra of any of the ingredients, depending on your taste.
Take your chicken and cut into half. The best way to do it, is to slice along where the breast bone is. Cut right through to the end, allowing you to flatten and spread out your chicken in one piece.
Heat up your BBQ to medium low heat around 200 degrees. Cut your baguette in half.
Then place on the BBQ and cook for about three minutes for each side, until the baguette is crispy and has some char marks on it.
Then set aside and once cool take your garlic clove and rub all over the inside of your baguette.
Now heat up your BBQ to medium and then put your chicken on, with the inside of the chicken on the grill. Close the BBQ and keep it closed throughout the chicken cooking.
After 15 minutes turn it over with the meaty side on the grill.
Let it cook for about 15 minutes and you will see some char on the now crispy skin and some of the fat will start to drop down into the BBQ.
Turn it over again and now brush the inside with the BBQ sauce.
Cook for 15 minutes.
Then turn over again, cook for another 15 minutes and brush with all the remaining BBQ sauce.
Turn off the BBQ and let the chicken rest for about 10 minutes, but leave it on the BBQ.
Cut up your cherry tomatoes in half and sprinkle a bit of olive oil over them and some salt and pepper.
You are ready to plate, easy and delish.
