Colombian-Style Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

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.

There’s no denying that the Char-Broil Big Easy makes mighty fine chicken. Mighty tasty, mighty moist and mighty pretty. This Colombian-style chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy sets the bar really high when it comes to poultry. Every bite is packed with a fantastic combination of spices and vegetables. I was reminded of the roasted chicken you could buy on the streets in South America.

Colombian-Style Chicken on the Char-Broil Big Easy

Whenever I make a perfect chicken like this Colombian-style chicken on my Big Easy I laughingly ask myself: should I hire security to guard the patio? It’s just so good that I wouldn’t be surprised if some passerby jumped the fence to grab a taste! The aroma alone while the chicken is cooking is enough to drive you crazy!

I (obviously) used a whole chicken for this recipe, but pieces would work just as fine. Just don’t overlap them in the Big Easy or they won’t cook evenly.

Also try my Cajun-marinated chicken on the Big Easy. For a nice citrus flavor my lemon roasted chicken is a must-make too!
