pinch tips: How to Brown Chicken



4 to 6


20 Min


3 Hr




1 large
4 to 5 pound whole chicken
2 lb
mushrooms - your choice - i used button mushrooms
1 large
yellow onion - chopped
1 bunch
fresh chives - trimmed and chopped
1 Tbsp
lemon pepper - or to taste
1 Tbsp
fresh ground pepper
1/2 c
1/2 c
chicken stock - homemade or your favorite store brand
1 tsp
red pepper flakes - or to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

Rinse your chicken off and pat dry and set aside...
Remove the ends of the mushrooms and " clean " with a dry cloth...
Cut the mushrooms in quarter pieces and set aside...
Place the butter in a pan and allow it to melt fully.

Place red pepper flakes, chives, onions, lemon pepper, fresh ground pepper in with the butter and simmer for 5 minutes.
Place the mushrooms in this mixture and stir so that all the mushrooms are coated, do not " cook " the mushrooms here...
Take a little of the butter/herb " sauce " and drizzle over the chicken
Place the chicken in a BBQ Grill " Safe " pan and " stuff " the chicken with the mushroom herb mixture.
Okay.... New " Learning Moment " on " How to Smoke " with your grill...

If You have a charcoal grill, place the charcoal on one side of the grill and " light " the coals... This will " give " You a one sided HOT grill... Place the BBQ Grill " Safe " pan on the " Cool " side ( the side without the charcoal burning ) This Type of BBQing is known as " Indirect Heat " smoking...

If You have a Propain Grill, You do the same but only " Light " one burner...
Using a thermostat, Try to get the Temperature as close to 220 degrees as possible.

Go to your grocery store and purchase your BBQ wood chips, There are many " flavors to choose from, Hickory being a very popular flavor....

Place the " chips in water for about 30 minutes before You start to smoke....

then place the chips in a non burnable container and place on the burning coals...

This will " create " the SMOKE that You will Taste when You eat the chicken....

Smoke for 3 hours watching every hour...
Once the juices run clear, your chicken is done....

Serve with a Crusty Bread and green salad !
ENJOY !!!!!!!!!!!!!
