Super Bowl parties
Well, Super Bowl Sunday will be here before you know it and that means Super Bowl parties. I’ll be perfectly frank, I’m not a huge fan of football. I do try to get into it but apparently I’m missing the genetic code that will enable me to sit through an entire game. Except for the Super Bowl commercials….those are more my speed. And Super Bowl party food…that’s my arena of play. My husband usually requests a few of his favorites and I try to oblige. This next recipe is one of them.
The Best Chicken Marinade
And pop it into the fridge for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Cook for about 5-6 minutes per side (until internal temp. is 165F degrees). It’s really important that you flip the chicken using tongs and you handle it by the meat portion of the skewer. Don’t try flipping using the skewer itself. Metal ones will be too hot to handle at this point and the wooden ones might break.Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
Cook’s Note: To keep food from sticking to your grill, you need to make sure you scrub off any baked-on food that might still be on your grill grates or your chicken is just going to stick to that blackened char. Don’t have a grill brush? Just preheat your gas grill to high for a few minutes and close the lid. Open it up, turn down the heat, and scrub grates with a wad of aluminum foil. Works for me every time!
