Fiery Chicken Breasts on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Yes! Oh yes! How I do love my chicken with a little kick. I made some fiery chicken breasts on my Char-Broil Big Easy and they had that great spicy hit. Not too much, and not too little. Perfect. The meat was moist, tender and had the perfect flavor. All thanks to a quick marinade in Goya’s Mojo Chipotle marinade!
Fiery Chicken Breasts on the Char-Broil Big EasyI’ve cooked literally hundreds of chicken breasts on my Big Easy and I can say it’s pretty much impossible to goof it up. I mean you’d have to work really hard at it. This recipe is a great example. Marinate the chicken, drop it in to the Big Easy (ok, put it in the basket first!) and cook until done. Boom. That’s it.

Goya’s Mojo Chipotle marinade has a great southwestern flavor with just a little spicy smokiness. If you’re afraid of heat don’t worry because it won’t overwhelm you at all. It’s just right. If you can’t find it in your local store or don’t want to order it online, try my Kick’N Chicken Legs instead.

Also try my green chile rubbed chicken on the Big Easy.

Loaded Roasted Twinkies on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Oh how I do love cooking Twinkies on my Char-Broil Big Easy. They’re the world’s easiest dessert. And they can be topped with darn near anything you have in the pantry, fridge or freezer. The Twinkies only take a few minutes to get a nice little crunch on the outside, while the insides get all oooey gooey. I topped my loaded roasted Twinkies on the Char-Broil Big Easy with Nutella, marshmallows, whipped cream, toffee and for a hint of healthy, some fresh strawberries.
Loaded Roasted Twinkies on the Char-Broil Big EasySpreading a bit of Nutella on the Twinkies first gives the remaining ingredients something to hold onto. They don’t slide off and into the pan. Now, I’m not saying that if they did slide off that it’d be the end of world, no, but loaded roasted Twinkies need to be mounded with toppings. The more, the better.

Also make up a batch of chocolate chip cookies or some bloomin’ apples for dessert. On your Big Easy. Yep, that’s right, on your Big Easy!

Hot Dogs on the Char-Broil Big Easy

I could’ve fired up my gas grill to cook a batch of hot dogs. Or lit some charcoal. That’s when I had a ‘duh’ moment. The Big Easy! It cooks everything great, so why not use it! So that’s what I did and wow, I have to say it cooks up hot dogs about as quick and as easy as you could possibly get. Just fire it up, load it up and wait. Read a book, watch some TV, play a game, because there’s no turning, no worrying, no burning. Done in no time and roasted perfectly! Say hello to the new way to cook up hot dogs!
Hot Dogs on the Char-Broil Big EasyFor something totally different, try marinating your hot dogs first.

Char-Broil makes two different kabob sets for the Big Easy. One sits on the bottom of the Big Easy with the kabobs extending upwards. The other rests on top of the cooking basket with the kabobs pointing downward. Either one will work just fine for cooking up a nice big batch of hot dogs. There’s plenty of room in the Big Easy for jumbo dogs, too.

Hot Dogs on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Note: I easily fit 8 regular-sized hot dogs onto the kabobs. I might could squeeze 8 more. If you use bun-length dogs you'll only be able to fit 8.
