- 1⁄2 to 1 chicken, cut up in sectional pieces
- 1 large Vidalia onion
- 1-2 medium peppers, red and green
- 1 bottle of your favorite barbecue sauce
- Garlic powder, rosemary and seasoned salt to taste
- 1 tbsp. honey or mustard
Season cut chicken pieces with you favorite spices, which can include a basic seasoning salt, garlic powder, pepper and a tad of rosemary. Season underneath the skin, as well as on top. Cut a combination of green peppers and onions and cover the bottom of a large cooking pan. Lay the chicken pieces on top of the onions and peppers completely covering the area. Add a 1⁄2 cup of water to the pan (not covering the chicken) and then place the lid on, making sure it is a snug fit. Simmer over a medium to low flame until the chicken is nice and tender and thoroughly cooked, about 1 hour. Take your favorite barbeque sauce, homemade or otherwise, and add whatever spices you desire—honey/Dijon mustard, pineapple, hot peppers, honey, etc. Mix the ingredients together in a bowl and pour the sauce over the cooked chicken, making sure all pieces are coated. Let simmer for another five minutes. Serve as is, or put it on the outdoor grill or in the oven under the broiler, until it gets a nice crisp coating.
