My mind was racing regarding all of the leg quarters I had frozen and ways of using them in recipes. The very first way I thought about cooking the chicken was simply baked barbecue chicken. I don’t have means of a grill at this time so baked chicken will do. If I did have a grill convenient to me, grilling would have been the first method I would have chosen.
In my opinion, one of the best barbecue sauces on the market in the local grocer is Sweet Baby Ray’s. I love it on wings, ribs, etc. They came out with a Honey Chipotle flavored sauce. So, I decided to use that flavor of their sauce in the baked chicken. This is a simply baked chicken recipe. Simply rinse and pat down the chicken. Dice an onion and mix with about 1/2 cup of barbecue sauce and 2 Tablespoons water. Place chicken on to a baking dish large enough to accommodate the chicken. Pour sauce mixture over chicken.
Place chicken into a 400 degree preheated oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour. I had some rather large leg quarters so mine took about an hour.
The chicken was very moist and tasty. The barbecue sauce was very good and gave so much flavor to the chicken. If I had thought about it prior, I definitely would have marinated the chicken in the barbecue sauce as well.
My love of cooking has taken over. I was on the net one day and saw an ad for a recipe contest. I entered. Then, I entered another. Then another, and so on and when I won a contest... an entire year's worth of tomato products, I was hooked. Since then, I've entered many many different recipe contests. I have won a trip to New York, entries into cook-offs, a recipe published in a Kraft/Paula Deen cookbook and many food products and food related items. I enjoy cooking and entering recipe contests. I hope I spark an interest in others to create something they can be proud of.
