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.
One of my favorite things to make on my Char-Broil Big Easy is split chicken breasts. I buy the chicken on sale, and stock up big. A few bottles of store-bought marinade, a little time, and I’ve got great tasting, tender, moist chicken. I usually cut the meat from the bone and save it for topping salads. Perfect.
This time I grabbed Rib Rack’s Chicken marinade. They claim it’s the “perfect blend of onions, garlic, apples, citrus and spices” and by golly, they’re right. The marinade made for delicious chicken.
I let the chicken marinate for about 4 hours. I tend to not marinate as long when the marinade contains citrus. Four hours turned out to be the perfect amount of time.
The Rib Rack chicken marinade does contain sugar, so you’ll want to keep an eye on your chicken as it cooks in the Big Easy. High temperatures and sugar don’t usually go well together. You can end up with a pretty good crisp on your chicken, though mine just started to get dark right as the chicken was done. Perfect.
Also try my Old Colony chicken on the Big Easy.
