State Fair Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

If you’ve ever marinated chicken in Italian salad dressing, then you can begin to have an idea of the flavors State Fair Chicken BBQ sauce will bring to your next chicken cooked in the Char-Broil Big Easy. I say ‘begin to’ because State Fair sauce is so much more. It’s vinegar-based, and all-natural. It adds tremendous flavor, and tenderness and juiciness to boot. As an added bonus it smells great while it’s cooking too!

Like Italian dressing, State Fair Chicken BBQ sauce is not only great as a chicken marinade, it can be used on salads just like a salad dressing. This stuff is good. Get you some!

House of Wings Southern Wing Sauce

Alliger’s House of Wings sauces are incredible. They set the bar high. So high that I’m spoiled by every sauce I’ve had. Like this southern wing sauce. It’s a different flavor than your traditional ‘normal’ wing sauces. It’s got a bit of spiciness to it, but not too much. The spices are unique and quite honestly I had a hard time figuring out what they were. But I do know it’s a fantastic sauce and it would also make a fantastic marinade for chicken.

The cool thing about House of Wings sauces (besides the fact that they are delicious) is that you can combine them and make new flavors. For delicious Mexican-inspired wings, combine one part southern sauce and one part nuclear sauce.

Also try the Singapore wing sauce.

I absolutely love chicken wings, cooked any way, with any sauce (or without). I love them so much that I created a free eCookbook that is full of my favorite wing recipes. Also check out my always-growing list of my favorite store-bought wing sauces.

Harvest Chex Mix

You want to talk about disappearing fast. This Harvest Chex Mix was gone in just minutes when Anita took it into the office to share with her co-workers. It’s a wonderful combination of sweet treats, mixed in with cereal, Bugles and pretzels. All coated in a delicious buttery brown sugar coating. You cannot just eat one handful, that’s for sure!
Harvest Chex Mix

You can pretty much add whatever your autumn favorites are into the Harvest Chex Mix. Just make sure that you let the baked mixture completely first. You don’t want a melty gooey mess!

You will need a very large bowl or container as this recipe does make a good-sized batch of mix.
