2014-09-26 18.49.27 Wicker's BarbecueWe love to cook out and have a tradition whenever we see my parents.  We call it Pop’s Chicken or Wicker’s Chicken.  It is marinated for two days in this fabulous barbecue sauce from Southeast Missouri near where my dad grew up and I was born: Wicker’s Barbecue Marinade and Baste.  No, I’m not a native Texan.  My brother won’t let me forget it, either.  Arrived as soon as I could, at 18 months old, so I’m close.

Green Egg

My husband learning from the master.  He does a great job when Pop’s isn’t here.

Wicker’s has a vinegar base so it tenderized and flavors the marinated meat thoroughly.  It has almost no sugar and a low caloric content making it pretty healthy.  It takes a bit of advance planning but it is so worth it.  I promise!  I give this as a host/hostess gift sometimes with a card that says marinate for 48 hours and get rave reviews.

Have your butcher cut the bone in chicken breasts horizontally for you. (I made this photo small because there is nothing really pretty about raw chicken…agree!?!?)

Wicker's Barbecue Chicken

Place bone down on the grill.  We prefer the Green Egg.  Nothing beats a real charcoal grill.

Williams Sonoma Baster

Turn and baste every 20 minutes until done.  I love this great basting tool from Cuisinart.  Keeps your marinade bug free!

Barbecue Buffet

We served this with grilled corn, roasted brussel sprouts from this post and a gluten free apple galette (recipe on the way).  Yum!

Outdoor entertaining

We added an Austin Cocktails and dinner was complete.  These are fabulous cocktails that I’ll tell you more about tomorrow!

Wicker's

Order some today from Wicker’s or from my new store and try it next weekend for the holiday weekend.  The weather is perfect for grilling.
