Boiling Chicken?

Postby madmax52 » Fri Oct 09, 2009 10:18 am

My wife being a nurse insists on boiling chicken before we put it on the grill. Do any of you do this? I find it totally unnecessary and time consuming. I haven't really noticed a change in flavor or anything though.

I'm not a big fan of yard birds to begin with. Put up with it in the menu rotation for maintenance reasons. The Mrs is High Maintenance :lol: If she's not going to be home you can bet the farm that you won't see me cooking chicken for my lonesome 8) That said, if I had to blanch a chicken before I could smoke/grill it, well there are somethings that just ain't right no-how. I'd have to draw the line on that one.

Easy killer. lol. I didn't say that I condoned it at all. As a matter of fact; when we bbq chicken it's usually in two batches. Her boiled then grilled chicken and mine that I insist on doing without the boiling process. You have to forgive her too though, she's not from Texas. Shes from NW Kentucky. I love her to death and all, just some differences in cooking/culture we gotta work around. On the other hand, her baking puts Betty Crocker to shame. Man the Mrs can bake a cake :D I cant wait to get home that's for sure.
