- 1 large
- bottle wish bone italian salad dressing
- 1 stick
- bay leaves
1Place all together in saucepan and place on stove.
Start heat on High
2Heat to a roiling boil then
-reduce heat to medium-high
3Cook, stirring and watching so that it doesn't boil over..keep the heat down just enough to keep the sauce from boiling over. I call it a medium boil.
4You want to keep this on the stove like this for at least 15 minutes.
5Remove the bay leaves
Add a set of meat tongs to the pan and take it outside to the grill.
Dad always kept a piece of aluminum foil on top of the pan to keep the flys away from it.
6I don't know Dad's secret for grilling his chicken except that he:
-grills it part of the way first before ever dunking any
-flips the pieces every 5-7 min or so
-dunks each piece into the sauce pot every time he flips it
*the saucepan is NOT kept on/in the grill
*takes nearly an hour to cook a grill full of chicken
