BBQ Chiken on the Stove vs. Grilled BBQ Chicken
Did you grow up eating barbecue chicken? It wasn’t a regular dish in our family, but I remember having it at a friend’s house when I was a kid, almost every weekend. They cooked bone-in BBQ chicken on the grill, and it was a messy affair to eat it. Imagine, the scene was so messy, that they always prepared a few wet washcloths available at the table.
However, I suppose that I still remember this particular scene because I hated getting messy as a kid just as much as I do now. Having to eat saucy chicken with my hands made a lasting impression, I guess. Although, my stovetop barbecue chicken recipe isn’t messy to eat at all, and you can make it in a hurry. Not to mention you do not actually need a grill. That’s perfect for satisfying your BBQ craving during bad weather!
On the other hand, enjoying a hot meal in the fresh air, surrounded by my neighbor’s garden plants was definitely more enjoyable than eating indoor. Yes, if the weather doesn’t allow us to eat outside, the alternative of this stovetop bbq chicken recipe is great. However, if it is sunny, I don’t see why would we choose not to spend our evening in the fresh air?
Finally, I am really interested in finding out your angle on this issue. What is your favorite way to cook and serve bbq chicken? Will the stovetop bbq chicken recipe become handy on a rainy day for you too? Tell me all about your barbecue experience and share your advice in the comments section!
