A quartered broiler-fryer chicken is coated with 1 1/2 cups of melted butter & a tablespoon of pepper, then with crushed BBQ chips before baking.

  • Servings: 4


1 Broiler-fryer Chicken, quartered
3 sticks Butter, 1 ½ cups
1 Large Bag of Bar-b-que Chips, whatever is your favorite brand in your local area
1 Tbsp Pepper


In a medium saucepan melt the 3 sticks of butter with the 1 Tbsp of pepper. Take the large bag of chips, open slightly, and with a rolling pin smash the chips while in bag. Then place smashed chips in a lg. bowl. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the quarters of chicken in the melted butter and turn to get the bird coated real well with the melted butter. Next dredge each piece of chicken in the potato chip crumbs. Place in a baking pan sprayed with Pam. Bake in oven about 1 hour at 350 degrees uncovered, or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove, let stand for 5 minutes and serve.

Helpful Tips:

Other configurations for this recipe-- you could try sour cream and onion chips or salt and vinegar chips. I tried both,and they taste pretty good, but the bar-b-que variety is the best.
