Barbecued Chicken
Warm Potato Salad with Green Beans

Cooking time: 60 minutes for menu          Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

       Summer isn't summer without barbecued chicken.  A whole chicken will probably give you a few pieces leftover for lunch; or you can just get your favorite pieces.  The barbecue sauce will keep for a week and we have other uses for it.  The Bean and Potato Salad is for 2 meals.  

Barbecued Chicken 

Total time: 60 minutes
  As it is assumed people want to do most things for themselves here, we have to buy the whole chicken and cut it up - otherwise we might not get the feet... Get a cut-up chicken or packages of your preferred pieces, freezing what you don't use for another day.

Barbecued Chicken Ingredients:


Warm Potato Salad with Green Beans 

Total time: 30 minutes
     Bacon and cider vinegar add the traditional flavors of Hot German Potato Salad.  The green beans and celery round it out, making it a great accompaniment to grilled meats.  Serve warm or room temp...  Or even right from the fridge!
