There is two basic ways of making barbecue chicken. The first way is to use a dry rub and the second is using a wet sauce. Both have their ways of being great and bad. Both methods are very easy and simple but with dry rub you need to coat the chicken a second time or keep applying extra seasoning as you cook and with using a wet sauce the sauce either doesn't stick to the chicken or it will start to burn as it cooks. With this barbecue rubbed chicken recipe, you start by making a dry rub then turn it into a paste the will stick well to the chicken locking in the moisture and with caramelize into a glaze like you will get with the traditional dry rub.

With the summer grilling season just starting to get going, it is time to uncover that grill and get cooking. This monterey chicken is a fantastic grilling recipe. The marinated glazes the chicken and leaves a great light char on both sides. Then gets topped with swiss cheese, grilled onions, bacon and the fresh pico de gallo puts a fantastic final touch to the chicken. The recipe will also work great in a 400 degree oven too if you done have access to a grill or the weather isn't playing fair with you.
For a game day snack and appetizer, the classic chicken wing is still an all time winner for fun and creative flavors you can make with them. These spicy bourbon wings have the flavor of the bourbon, plus the slight heat of the hot sauce give you a bit of a kick at the end. The skin gets really crispy but the chicken on the inside is still nice and juicy. The main factor is you need to find a great flavor bourbon that has great flavor but don't feel bad about poring it down the sink at the end. I use medium blend Kentucky bourbon that is around 10 dollars a bottle and turns out good, but use whatever quality you enjoy since it is a factor in the flavor.
