In the photo of the barbecue chicken above I left the skin on and of course the bones are still in there but you can save lots of money by buying chicken thighs and removing the skin and the bones. You then cover the chicken thighs with plastic wrap and beat the chicken thighs flat and freeze them on a tray in the freezer. After they freeze place them into large zip lock bags and you have chicken ready to use any time you like. One really great thing is that chicken thighs are one third the price of chicken breast and you can make any thing with chicken thighs that you make with chicken breast. You can even prepare the chicken thighs by beating them through the plastic wrap and then soak them in Italian Dressing about an hour and grill them until done. Slice them up and place the cooked chicken into a plastic zip lock bag and on that busy day you can have quick chicken tacos or grilled chicken on a big salad. Incidentally before someone asks you beat the chicken through the plastic wrap to keep down on mess. If your going to be preparing chicken like this often you should purchase a metal meat tenderizing hammer. You can then beat the chicken pieces that you have removed the skin and bones from and have some of the most delicious tender barbecue chicken that you'll ever eat in your life.
Let Me Give You A Quick And Delicious Barbecue Sauce Recipe
1. 2 Cups Tomato Sauce.
2. 1/4 Cup Brown Sugar.
3. 1/4 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar.
4. 1 Tablespoon Ground Fresh Garlic.
5. 1 Teaspoon Ground Sea Salt.
6. 1 Teaspoon Black Pepper.
7. 1 Level Teaspoon Ground Cayenne Pepper.
8. 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice.
9. 1 Six Ounce Can Tomato Paste.
10. 2 Cups Of Coke Or Pepsi.
You'll want to put all your ingredients into a stock pot and bring almost to a boil. Then reduce to a low simmer and cook about 45 minutes until thick and rich. You can place this sauce in a plastic container with lid and keep in the refrigerator up to a month. And I just bet you people will love it. Its great on chicken, ribs, pulled pork, or grilled shrimp. Brush a little on in the last 15 minutes of cooking time and serve the rest on the side with the meal. You never want to put barbecue sauce onto meat on the grill until the last 15 minutes of cooking time or your sauce will burn on the meat. I use a kitchen brush to paint the barbecue sauce on what ever meat I'm cooking.
Pepsi or Coke either one will work great in this homemade barbecue sauce recipe. And the Coke or Pepsi is really the secret ingredient in the barbecue sauce. Try it and I bet you'll love it. It gives the barbecue sauce a flavor that you'll never get with out it.
Prepare Your Grill To Get Ready To Cook.
A lot of people don't understand preparing their grill to get ready to cook meat on. Your grill needs to be hot before you put the meat on. Don't just run out there and light the grill and throw the meat on. You're never going to be happy with the result if you do. If your using charcoal you want to light the charcoal and let the fire go out before you try to cook on a charcoal grill. I really should say let the fire die down to a point where the coals are white hot. If your going to be cooking a lot you may have to add more charcoal later on. Learn how to have your charcoal fire over on one side of the grill while you cook on the other side. This really is the best way to cook on a charcoal grill. In case you're wondering the name for cooking on a grill that way is indirect heat. Its really the best way to cook most meats on a charcoal grill. Remember to wait until the last 15 minutes of cooking time to add the barbecue sauce to the meat.

I like to use it on skinned boned chicken thighs.
