Apple-Butter Barbecued Roasted Chicken
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Grill: 1-1/2 hours + standing
If you wait till internal temp reaches 180 degrees your chances of dry meat goes up greatly. Cook to 160 internal cover and it will rise to about 165 degrees, which is perfect. We did love everything about the taste. We regularly have apple butter Bar-B-Que sauce on hand for our chicken and pork recipes.
Stretch the breast and back skin, then apply the butter rub under the skin.Rub the whole body with olive oil and add your seasoning to the rub.
Fabulous Recipe...well worth the time and effort of making your own Apple Butter which I found the recipe for from Taste of Home!
Would you be able to do this similar thing in a crockpot?
Great tasting grilled chicken. I used my beer can chicken grill pan instead of using apple juice can.
I did this with chicken breasts...fabulous!
To burgers76: Just use a pan big enough to catch the drippings from the chicken, and stand it up on the lower rack of your oven. Bake at 350 - 375 and it will come out about the same as indirect grilling. You could add a little liquid smoke to the apple juice or sauce, if that is the flavor you think you'd miss by not using a grill. I just got the recipe, so I will be trying it soon.
Would love to try this recipe, but don't have a grill. I just have a countertop electric grill so its impossible. Too bad some of these great -sounding recipes aren't also shown for us older folks who don't use outdoor grills anymore
Love taste of home!!!!!!!!
