KTVB Kitchen: Chef Lou shows how to grill his wife's BBQ chicken

This recipe is perfect for summer cook-outs with friends and family and doesn't need a grill to make delicious BBQ chicken or ribs.

BOISE, Idaho — Ingredients for the BBQ smoke marinade 

2 cups French dressing

1/3 cup of liquid smoke

1 Tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons of lemon juice

1 tablespoon of lemon pepper

¼ cup of honey

Mix all ingredients well

Four pounds of raw fryer chicken cut up


Marinate chicken for at least 5 hours, or overnight. Heat gas or charcoal broiler. Blister each side of the chicken  -this process takes 7-9 minutes each side.

At this point, you can turn your grill down and finish cooking chicken. This takes about 20-25 minutes depending on what piece of chicken you use (breasts take longer than wings.)


You can place chicken on a baking pan (cookie sheet) and baste with leftover marinade.  Place in a preheated 375-degree oven and cook for about 35-40 minutes.

Discard marinade after finishing.
