Easiest chicken recipe on planet earth...

Years ago while working in the yard, I needed to get the chicken started. Remembering what we did to smoke the thanksgiving turkey, I heavily salted chicken parts, thighs, drumsticks, and split breasts, (leave the skin on, it's importatnt.) I started the gas grill on high. When hot, I turned it down to low and placed the chicken on the grill, dropped the cover, then proceeded to mow the lawn. I turned the chicken often until it was golden brown. That's it. Salt, chicken, and grill on low. It is fantastic. The salt on the skin creates it's own browning bag. I simply discard the skin and eat. Don't worry about salting the unskinned parts of the thigh or the breast. It won't be overly salty. I have used this method on a Webber, also. The temp is much hotter, but I turn them often and keep them covered. It's the only way I grill chicken.

I had chicken that was similar to this years ago in Portugal, it was excellent (as were ribs cooked much the same way). Too bad we don't have a BBQ, I'd like to try your recipe out

....and they never try it because it is so simple. People think, as I used to, that you had to add a sauce, lemon, garlic, and so forth. While all of that is really good, this is soooooo good, it's silly. And, you live in Texas, too. We cook out 365 days a year. I love it.

Oh, I would try it.... don't get me wrong there. I have found that "simplicity" often goes hand in hand with great cooking!!!! We have a fire ban right now so grilling out will get me a citation. But it is on my list of things to try!!!

....we can't grill under the fire ban? Are you sure we are restricted from BBQ grills? If so, I'm in a heap of trouble.

Watauga

At least for Watauga. The public grills at our parks, they are covered with black plastic with police tape wrapped around them. I noticed a sign last night at the park which said "Burn Ban in Effect". As much as I like to grill... I am only 1/4 mile away from the police station... knowing my luck, they would smell my grill and be at my house within minutes!!! Yikes!

...but I can understand the burn ban in the parks. People are idiots in a crowd. Just look at traffic!!!
