Take home fried chicken-the NEXT day
Sun, 06/16/13 10:24 PM
True story: I was living in another town with my 2 small kids. DH was in the Navy at the time & out on a deployment. Went out to a local fried chicken chain/caterer. They'd had a wedding cancel-out their catering order & were selling ALL chicken items as BOGO. I felt "Bummer" because between the 3 of us we couldn't EAT that much chicken. The gal behind the counter gave me the BESTEST. TIP. EVER. Get the BOGO chicken & enjoy fried chicken tonight. Tomorrow night (or the next.....IF IT LASTS THAT LONG!) put 1/2 bottle any kind of BBQ Sauce in a bowl. Whisk in (almost) the same amount of......LEMON JUICE. Coat your chicken pieces & place 'em on a foil lined cookiew sheet/baking pan. Re-heat in a 350 degree oven for about 20 min. (Keep an eye on it, it's done when the BBQ sauce bubbles around the chicken.) Can also be re-heated on the grill....but that's not necessary.
The lemon juice CUTS the grease & coats the crispy skin.....making the BEST. BBQ CHICKEN. EVER.
