the best chicken secret

these my friends are a little secret becca told me about, i will now impart....

these beautiful things are chicken thighs. have you never ever?

reconsider....

becca told me they were so wonderful, juicy and flavorful.

she was right.

honestly. i can't get enough of the things.
you must grill them. or your husband must. and, if he works nutty hours sewing people up, well, get inventive and come up with your own ideas.

i am scared the grill will revolt and try to cook me instead of my meat, so i tend to let scotty grill. so, one day, when my craving overtook any reasoning, i made my own.

do let the little thighs marinate in any bbq sauce you want. maybe a day or two, it just rocks this thigh. i turned the oven up to 375, placed a cookie rack below to save a smoky mess and cooked them for 1 hour.

the skin is so crunchy, the chicken dances in your mouth and begs you to eat more and more. the flavor is off the charts, so please, try a thigh....

Are those chickens placed directly on the oven racks? If so, how do you clean them?

honestly kim, i let the rack sit in the hot hot oven a little longer so the drippings crisped up a bit and just brushed right off with a towel. the grill is the best way, but this is what i did in a pinch and it was worth the extra hassle of cleaning the rack!
