Note: This recipe was developed using the Char-Broil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer. If you are cooking using the Char-Broil Smoker-Roaster Grill you should cook with the lid open and the temperature set to High. You might also need to adjust the cooking time.
Roasted chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy is something I could make and eat all day long. I never get tired of it. I usually make split chicken breasts or whole chickens. This time I used a great off-the-shelf rub, Dizzy Pig’s Raging River, and cooked the chicken until done. I then brushed on my fantastic homemade peach BBQ sauce. Wow, what great chicken!
You can make any chicken using this same technique but substitute your own rub or seasoning and any sauce you want. Just make sure that you don’t put the sauce on until the end (after the chicken is fully cooked) or it will burn. The Big Easy cooks at a high temperature. It won’t take long for it to set the sauce.
Peach BBQ Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy
- Fire up your Big Easy.
- Rinse the chicken and pat dry. Apply the seasoning and transfer the chicken to the Big Easy basket.
- Cook for approximately 20 minutes per pound or until it reaches 165 F as checked in several places.
- Remove the Big Easy basket and carefully brush the chicken with the sauce. Return the basket to the Big Easy for another 5 minutes to set the sauce.
