Atomic Chicken Recipe!
Susan is back with another great recipe this week – Atomic Chicken Recipe:
I am on vacation still and just realized that I wouldn’t be cooking anything this week. However, the friends we are vacationing with are cooking dinner tonight and have offered one of their favorite grilled chicken recipes, Atomic Chicken, along with an easy technique for whipping up dinner quickly. I just ate it for dinner and it was so flavorful.
My friend, Chris Hart, allowed me to video him while he was preparing the dish. He will share his easy technique to preparing this simple spicy grilled chicken:
As far as a recipe, he just pours, but I pressed him for proportions. Here is the best he could give me.
- Chicken breasts and thighs (appropriate number)
- Worcestershire Sauce—3 parts Jalapeno Mustard—1 part Tabasco Sauce—-to taste
- No other seasoning.
To marinade the chicken ahead of time, Chris started with:
- 3 parts Worcestershire Sauce to 1 part mustard.
As you can see in the video, the mustard type is optional. The Tabasco is just splashed in and the amount depends on how hot you like it.
But as he is cooking it and re-dipping it, he adds more mustard. Now the proportions would probably be more like 2 to 1. The mustard sticks to the chicken but doesn’t char the chicken like a BBQ sauce will.
Don’t forget that you can throw frozen chicken right on the grill and as it thaws, dip the grilled side into the marinade….then turn it over and put it back on the grill. Do this several times.
Hi, my name is Susan and I love cooking, watching the Food Network, reading cookbooks and, of course, eating. I am also an artist and spend time each week in my studio (bedroom) oil painting. I am a mother of four and a grandmother to 5 and that, along with my husband and 2 dogs, take up my most of my time. I am a side-tracked Home Executive and I had the privilege of being a stay –at-home mom so, you might say that my passion is the home and making a haven for those I love.
