recipe: Double BBQ chicken: This simple 3-ingredient recipe pleases kids and adults alike
Mary Bilyeu | Contributor
I was very happy to have been sent a generous box of goodies to play with, a lovely marketing gift from the Bender Hammerling Group, which handles public relations and marketing for several food producers. This assortment included several bags of Hawaiian Kettle Style Potato Chips.
The Luau BBQ chips just naturally lent themselves — to my mind, anyway — to a chicken dish. I have a new-to-me grill that I don't know how to use yet; so it seemed to me that I could still get great barbecue flavor if I used some sauce and the crispy, crunchy treats.
So here is just about the easiest recipe I'll ever offer, involving only 3 ingredients! Schmear some sauce onto chicken, then roll it in crushed potato chips. Kid-friendly ... aw, who am I kidding? It was a huge hit with all the adults, too — one of them told me, "This is the best chicken ever!" Great for a picnic, perfect for a weeknight dinner, ideal any time....
Double BBQ Chicken
1 cup honey barbecue sauce
6 ounces Hawaiian Kettle Style Potato Chips, Luau BBQ flavor
6 chicken thighs
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place the barbecue sauce into a medium bowl. Crush the potato chips into crumbs and place into a medium bowl.
One by one, take each piece of chicken and dip it into the barbecue sauce to coat well; dip into the potato chip crumbs to coat thoroughly, then place the chicken into a baking dish. Bake for 40 minutes until the chicken is crisp and the juices run clear. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
This would be great served with Cabbage and Fennel Slaw!
