I know this really belongs in testimonials, but I was so happy with the Cornell Chicken recipe in BBQ USA that I just had to mention it here as well.

If you haven't tried the Cornell Chicken Steven metions in his BBQ USA book, I highly recommend it. Probably the best barbecue chicken I've tasted and it even persuaded my wife to begin eating something other than boneless chicken breast!

There are two options - direct heat and indirect. I opted for the direct method and had no problems with burning before it got completely done on the inside.

I have also made this chicken and love it!!!!!!!!!! I've done both indirect on the gas grill and direct on the weber and both have turned out great.

Rather than start a new thread I thought I'd bring this one back just for grins. Because Cornell Chicken is really, really good. :wink:

Recently I used a family pack of chicken thighs for Cornell Chicken.

If there's a downside it's that the chicken requires constant attention and for people with sensitive skin (like me) it's just asking for a breakout, but in the end it's worth it. Fortunately my first move after bringing something from the grill into the house is a dash for the bathroom or laundry room so I can wash up ASAP. :wink:

Any direct-grilled chicken is likely to have crispy skin but it seems to turn out especially well with Cornell Chicken.

I don't know why I don't make CC more often. Thanks, Dr. Bob! :thumbup:
