BBQ "Fried" Chicken

By Manolito Bastasa

Sick of the same old bbq every holiday season? Start a new healthy tradition with taste you won't believe. Yes, we are giving you the opportunity for the best damn chicken on the grilled, tasting like fried chicken, but without the grease and excess calories. One of the things you will love most about this recipe is the variations you can have to really make this work for you. Using the Old-Soldier seasonings and rubs, you are already starting with the sugar free, msg free, gluten free and preservative free options. What you use next will help you keep on that same track.


Main ingredients for the "Fried"


Here's one of the greatest chicken meals you can do that is easy too. Make sure you start with good organic, free range chicken. You can find this just about everywhere now a days. This will ensure that there are no added "yuck" in the meat. Next, you will need the following:

  • Old-Soldier Poultry Seasoning
  • Old-Soldier Pork Seasoning
  • Couple of eggs
  • Gluten free flour blend (we love the ones from King Arthur, unless you're local in Denver - then Debbie's has a mix that is really nice too) or if you don't need to care about the gluten free aspect, a good flour blend is good
  • Panko or crushed cereal - Rice Chex is one that we use all the time, though I know Corn Flakes works too. I like to mix the Gluten Free Panko with the Rice Chex and work that around together as the panko is great for "filling in the blanks"
  • BBQ or Indoor Grill

Ok, so I will confess - you will see that there is no amounts listed above. Here's how I do it - A bit of this a dash of that and so forth. Play with the seasonings and see what you works for you. I would say that roughly it's about 3-4 TBSP of chicken mix and 1-2 TBSP of Pork. About a 2:1 mix combo is my fav, again, that will be up to you. I take a bowl and put about 1/4 cup - 1/2 cup of flour mixed with a panko/cereal combo, then mix all of those together - the seasonings, flour, cereal and panko. Beat a few eggs - typically it depends on how much chicken you want to serve as to how much of each. I usually make about 4 breasts (large) and do 2 eggs.

Coat the chicken with egg, then coat with flour mix then put on grill. I set the grill (gas one) to about 450 and sometimes put it down to 375/400 grill till cooked. Voila, crispy, coated chicken from the grill.!
