BBQ Broiled Chicken Breast

I’ve been experimenting with my broiler again.  Unfortunately I have an old electric range so I don’t get the browned bubbly results I always imagine but the chicken still came out fantastically.  It took longer than I expected, I assumed the broiler would work a little quicker.  Anyway, here is my recipe for today!

Place chicken breast on foil lined pan and broil 4 inches from broiler for about 8 – 10 minutes.  Flip over pieces and continue cooking about 5 more minutes.  Flip back over and spoon some bbq sauce over the top.  Broil another 3-4 minutes; flip and repeat on other side.  I flipped back to the top side and added a bit more sauce.  I was hoping the sauce would stick a bit more but the chicken was so tender and juicy that I really can’t complain about a thing.

Meatloaf with Honey Jalapeno Barbecue Sauce

I had a craving for some good old-fashioned meatloaf and of course I couldn’t resist adding some of that fantastic barbecue sauce Charles made earlier this week.  This came out wonderfully.  It’s a very moist meatloaf so if you don’t like it falling apart this probably isn’t for you.  I liked the combination it could have maybe used some more jalapeno; but I like spicy.

Meatloaf with Honey Jalapeno Barbecue Sauce

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 4 slices soft bread
  • 1/2 cup honey jalapeno barbecue sauce
  • 1/2 cup tomato juice
  • 1/4 cup finely diced onion
  • 1 Tbs diced pickled jalapeno
  • 1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 eggs

Combine all ingredients.

Shape into loaf; bake 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Glaze with addition barbecue sauce if desire.  Bake an additional 15 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Honey Jalapeno BBQ Sauce ~ Pork barbecue sandwiches

We are always experimenting with different barbecue sauces; I think this one that Charles made is a keeper.  He’s actually made it twice now.  It originally was created one evening a couple of weeks ago as he went to make bbq sauce only to find I had used all of our vinegar. We had the sauce with some fantastic pork that we’d smoked earlier in the week ~ with any luck I’ll share that recipe soon too.

Honey Jalapeno BBQ Sauce

  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vinegar pickle juice from a jar of pickled jalapeno
  • 1 Tbs granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbs honey
  • 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 tsp granulated garlic
  • dash Worcestershire sauce
  • juice of 1/2 lime
  • 1 1/4 cup ketchup

Combine all ingredients except ketchup in sauce pan over medium heat; bring to simmer and reduce heat to low and cook for about 5 minutes for flavors to release.  Add ketchup and heat through.  Serve hot or cold.

Spicy Lime Rubbed Ribs with Corona BBQ Sauce

So I have been talking for the past two days about my ribs.  I liked the rub, could have maybe been spicier and maybe I should have used more; I did after all have over 5 pounds of spare ribs.  The sauce however balanced out the spiciness perfectly.  As I mentioned in my first post I baked these; not my usual choice for ribs but I needed something I could do unattended for several hours without worry of my fire going out or the meat being over cooked.

Spicy Lime Rubbed Ribs with Corona BBQ Sauce

I like to use onions as a rack for my ribs.  Place onion slices on the bottom of baking dish.

Prepare rub mixture.

Season meat with rub and place in baking dish on onions. Pour corona into bottom of pan reserving 1/2 cup for sauce (or open an extra corona if you need); squeeze lime juice into pan also.

Cover with foil and place in 225 degree oven. Meanwhile prepare sauce.

Roast for about 6 hours.  Remove ribs from oven and set aside.  No peaking for at least 30 minutes. Baste ribs with sauce if desired and broil for about 6 minutes.

Corona BBQ Sauce

I mentioned the sauce yesterday in my rib rub post.  I like the kick the cayenne added and the lime and corona worked well together of course.  I didn’t use vinegar which is unusual for my barbecue sauces, but the lime and beer complimented everything so well I didn’t want to overwhelm with acidity.  I will wrap it all up tomorrow and get these ribs cooked.  In the meantime here is the sauce recipe.

Corona BBQ Sauce

  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup corona
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 Tbs lime juice
  • 3 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp crushed brown mustard seed
  • 1/2 tsp granulated garlic
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

Combine all ingredients in sauce pan.  Heat to simmer and cook for about 15 to 20 minutes over medium heat to thicken and bring out all the flavors.  Chill until ready to serve. Serve warm or cold.  Baste on to ribs if desired.
