Recipe – BBQ Chicken with Assorted Veggies
BBQ Chicken with Assorted Veggies
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 45 minutes
3 chicken breasts
2 medium potatoes
2 cups corn niblets
1 whole broccoli head
9 tablespoon of your favorite bbq chicken sauce
salt & pepper to taste
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried chives
2 tsp butter
1 tsp olive oil
Tin foil for pouch
3-6 portions of any fruit on the side (optional)
Heat up your BBQ to a nice 425-450’ depending on how old your BBQ is. While it’s heating up, prepare the potatoes by washing them if you are keeping the skin on, or peel them then wash them. Cut them up in ¾” thick bite size piece. Peel and cut the carrots into ½” thick pieces.
Place carrots and potatoes into a mixing bowl, add butter, olive oil, dried chives and paprika. Mix well. Using Tin-Foil (aluminum foil) create a few large sheets then fold around the mixture about 3 layers – ensuring that the opening seams alternate sides, top, bottom, top – this makes sure that no liquids fall out into the BBQ.
Place the mixture in the BBQ on indirect heat for about 20 minutes at high temp.
Wash and cut the broccoli and set aside. Bring out your chicken, season both sides with salt and pepper.
Once the potato mixture has been on the BBQ cooking for 20 minutes, flip the package over and finish cooking for the last 25 minutes. Start boiling water for the veggies. After 10 minutes (15 minutes left) put on the BBQ chicken on direct heat. Chicken typically takes between 5-7 minutes per side.
While the chicken starts to cook, it’s time to steam the broccoli, steam the corn too. You can also boil the veggies, but I prefer to steam to keep nutrition. If you want more flavor, you can always pan fry the veggies with a bit of butter, oil and salt/pepper to taste as well.
Turn over the chicken after 5-7 minutes, and baste the cooked side after with a bit of BBQ sauce. Continue cooking for the last 5-7 minutes.
Meanwhile, you can start washing and preparing the fruit and start plating. When the chicken is done, baste its last side and remove from BBQ. Let it sit on a cutting board for about 1-3 minutes and let it rest before slicing.
Plate the potato/carrot mixture and veggies, then slice the chicken and serve with more BBQ sauce on top, and salt/pepper seasoning to the veggies to taste.
