One of best ways to ensure you know what you are eating is to eat at home. With the kiddos and your extracurricular activities I know eating a home cooked meal is easier said than done. What you need is a plan. I thought I would share a page out of our Home Cooked Meal Play Book. One of our go to plans includes a whole chicken cooked over the grill on the weekend. A chicken can provide life saving left overs for week night meals. The chicken can be added to a stir fry, BBQ pulled chicken sandwiches, pastas, quesadilla, tacos, nachos, salads, anything. Here is one of our recipes we use to cook chickens on the grill. Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp spanish paprika
  • 2 tbsp ground sage
  • 1 tbsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tbsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 whole chicken

Instructions:

  • Prepare a grill for "indirect grilling". Optional: soak your favorite type of wood chips for smoking, for chicken I like apple.
  • Mix all the spices/herbs together until well blended.
  • Lossen skin of chicken and rub under and over the skin.
  • Place chicken on the grill over "indirect heat."
  • Baste chicken with olive oil every twenty minutes or so.
  • Cook chicken until juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 160F.
