Default tasteless chicken

Look at the labels on some chicken packages. The ones I've seen lately say that there has been chicken stock added. HUH?

My little brother likes to use those stands that ya put up a chickens butt. The stands are really just can holders. He told me just recently that a whole chicken cooked with a can of coke is fantastic! He likes doing them with a dark beer also.
I've injected chicken leg quarters with buffalo sauce and grilled them slowly. Don't try to marinate with the sauce because the sauce will carmalize(sp?) and burn before the chicken gets done.
I fix grilled breasts for my wife and use Morton's seasoned salt on them. Rub a little bit on before grilling. When ya turn 'em over, hit them with a little spray butter and more season salt. The butter keeps them from getting too dried out.

Hope some of these work for ya!
He took me!
Thanks Dad.
Wish you were here.

One trick to add some flavor to your bird is to take your favorite rub, spices, etc and rub them in under the skin on the breast. Take your finger and carefully separate the skin from the flesh and apply your seasoning.

One thing I like to do if I know it's going to be a hectic day is put a chicken in the crock pot. I generally add season salt, onion, celery, potatos, carrots and about a half inch of water - just enough to help keep the chicken moist. Turn it on low and when you get home, you'll have an awesome, fall off the bone, very tastey chicken dinner.

To make room in the crock, stuff the chicken with the celery and onion.
If you're not leaning, no one can let you down.

I've never heard a chicken tell a dirty joke.
