Staff BBQ Chicken Recipe

From our friends at Épices de Cru!

This blend is made up using 22 different spices, so there is almost no need to add much else to this combination for it to be delicious. It is an all-purpose spice blend which is equally great for grilling vegetables; simply oil them lightly before adding salt and spices. Baby new potatoes or grilled zucchinis, with a side of delicious roasted BBQ chicken anyone?

  • ¼ cup maple syrup

  1. Rub the chicken inside and out with the salt and spices. Set aside in a cool place or refrigerate for 2 to 24 hours.
  2. Light only one side of the BBQ, close the cover and heat to (350°-375°F). Place the chicken on the unlit side of the grill and cook for 1 hour, checking periodically.
