Now that you are using your grill to roast chicken or pork you are Probably wondering what else you can make with the leftovers. Well, here’s a wonderful way to use them up and please the crowd!

Roast Pork

Start by sauteing some onion in about a tablespoon of olive oil. Then pull the Meat from the bone and put it in the pot.

Add some fresh ground black pepper and pour Just add enough chicken stock or broth over it to just cover it. Add some chopped fresh Cilantro and the juice of one fresh lime. Simmer the meat for at least an hour, adding some more broth/stock as needed. Don’t let it get too dry.

While you are waiting for the meat to simmer, you can start fixing the rest of your meal.

Here’s a recipe for red salsa (known as Pico de Gallo) that is simple, fresh and very tasty. 6 plum tomatoes 1 small onion Fresh cilantro Lime juice Jalapeno peppers (either fresh or out of a jar) Optional Chop the tomatoes and the onion very fine. Add chopped cilantro, lime juice and jalapeno (if using).

You can also make some homemade guacamole to go with this meal. 2 ripe avocados (not so ripe that they are mushy. Just ripe enough to feel a little soft) cup chopped onion Chili powder, cumin, fresh ground black pepper, salt, cayenne pepper (only use about a tsp. of each) Lime juice (about 2 limes) Fresh cilantro Cut open avocados and scoop the inside out with a spoon or you can peal them if they aren’t too ripe and put the insides in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and mash with a fork until desired consistency. We like it a bit lumpy.

Guacamole

Homemade Guacamole is the BEST

Once the meat is ready you can heat a tsp. of canola oil in a frying pan and heat some corn tortillas. Grab some meat out of the pot with a pair of tongs and put it in the tortilla. Add some grated cheese (cheddar or pepper jack) and then top with fresh guacamole and salsa! You can add more toppings if desired: chopped black olives, chopped jalapenos, sour cream

You can fry the tortillas in oil so they are flat and crispy and layer the ingredients for a tosdada too!

“Kick’n Chicken” The Best Roasted Chicken Ever!

One whole roasting chicken

One pan (use one that can be just for the grill as it will get blackened) to use on the grill

Fire up the grill to about 400 degrees

Place chicken in pan, drizzle a bit of olive oil over both sides then shake the “Kick ‘n Chicken” spices all over generously. ┬á I also grind a little rosemary and garlic (in one of those disposable spice grinders) over it as well. Turn down or off the burner directly under the pan. Cook at 400 for approx. 2 to 2 1/2 hrs. depending on size of bird.

YUM
