Smoke House Chicken – Weekend Adventure in Cooking


Smoke house chicken! It tastes a lot like chicken you grill with a vinegar sauce, but the good news for this time of year, you don’t have to go outside to do it!.  When I wrote the post about the Twice Baked Potatoes, I told you that I’ve been cooking for my mom a lot, and this was her meal for this week.  I think it looks pretty good! Smoke house chicken, twice baked potatoes and buttered corn.

Smoke house chicken is a great dish to do on Sunday, you just stick it in the oven and bake for a couple of hours.  Simple to do and you could cook it ahead of time and reheat in the oven the night you want to serve it, just save a little of the liquid and baste over it as you’re reheating it, plus it’s cheap when you use leg quarters.

3 chicken leg quarters

1 TBSP kosher salt

1 tsp. pepper

3 TBSP black pepper

1 TBSP hot sauce

1 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
