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.

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.

Just a little Meatloaf ~ jalapeno meatloaf

I was using up the last of a package of ground beef and decided a little meatloaf sounded good.  I just had about 12 o.z. of beef left so adjust this to your liking if you want to make more, but the jalapeno was a great touch and we really enjoyed our lunch with a augratin potato too.

Jalapeno Meatloaf

  • 12 o.z. ground chuck
  • 1 clove garlic – minced
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 cup diced fresh jalapeno
  • 1/8 cup diced onion
  • 1/4 cup tomato juice
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup coarse bread crumbs

Combine all ingredients in medium bowl.  Form into a loaf and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes.  I like to top mine with ketchup or bbq sauce and bake a few minutes longer.

I actually sprinkled a little brown sugar on top of the ketchup for this one.  It makes a great compromise at our house as I prefer the bbq and Charles prefers ketchup.
