Kitchen Tips
Tip 1
Chipotle BBQ Chicken with Potatoes and Onions
Heat grill to medium-low heat. Combine 1-1/3 cups KRAFT Original Barbecue Sauce, 2 chopped canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce and 2 minced garlic cloves. Cut out backbones from 2 small (3 lb.) whole chickens with kitchen shears or sharp knife. Open chickens butterfly-style. Mix 1/3 cup barbecue sauce mixture with 1-1/2 lb. quartered red potatoes and 1 onion, cut into wedges. Spoon vegetables onto 4 large sheets heavy-duty foil; fold to make 4 packets. Grill chicken 15 min.; turn. Add packets to grill. Grill 25 to 30 min. or until vegetables are crisp-tender and chicken is done (165°F), turning chicken occasionally and brushing with remaining barbecue sauce mixture for the last 15 min. Serve 1 chicken with vegetables. Cool remaining chicken and shred to use for this Arepas recipe.
Tip 2
