Chiavetta’s Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I’ve been reading about Chiavetta’s BBQ marinade on various online forums for a while now. It’s out of Buffalo, NY, which sadly means that it’s not in our local grocery store. But, of course you can order it online, which I did. I got a big ole jug of Chiavetta’s and quickly got busy marinating a few split chicken breasts. Roasted on the Char-Broil Big Easy, the chicken had a wonderful garlicky, vinegary flavor with wonderfully crunchy skin.
Chiavetta's Chicken on the Char-Broil Big EasyChiavetta’s is quite vinegary. I love that because I’ve always been a fan of vinegary things like eastern North Carolina BBQ sauces or Buffalo wing sauce. If you’re not as big a fan of vinegar as I am, you’ll still love Chiavetta’s. Just shorten the time the chicken spends marinating.

I’m a big fan of store-bought marinated chicken like this Chiavetta’s chicken cooked on the Big Easy. Also try my Fowl Play, Sesame Ginger or Fireman’s Field Day chicken. They’re as easy and as tasty as it gets.
