This recipe came from my great aunt, who said it was very similar to the chicken my great-grandfather prepared. Though I have no memory of this chicken, I like knowing that this is a “heirloom” recipe. Next time I make the chicken, I may double the sauce recipe, marinade the chicken in the first batch and baste it with the second.
Viriginia BBQ Chicken
- 1 frying chicken, broken down (or 2 lbs of cuts of your choice)
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup vinegar
- 1 tbsp salt
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1/2 tbsp poultry seasoning
Combine all ingredients, except the chicken and bring to a boil in a sauce pan. Grill chicken as you normally would, brushing the vinegar mixture on the chicken with every turn. Cook until tender and the juice runs clear.
