Chili Lime Chicken & Sweet Potatoes
Oct 03 2017
I had a chicken bought for Sunday’s meal then the wife said she was going to the grandson’s soccer game so that left me alone to eat. I fixed it anyway along with some sweet potatoes. I usually do a fryer but all they had was a stewing chicken so I did it.
I brined the chicken overnight, spatchcocked it and in the fridge to dry several hours. I coated with a light coat of mayo and seasoned with some Trader Joe’s Chili Lime seasoning. I smoked it at 250 deg. For a half hour then went to about 300 deg. grill level, it took about 2 ½ hours.
I cut two sweet potatoes in half, a little olive oil and on a sheet pan at 350 deg. for an hour. I had butter and maple syrup on my potato with salt. I like a sweet and salt on them.
The chicken came out great! Love the chili lime seasoning, it will make some good wings.
Ready to smoke
Done at 170 deg. IT
