Smoked Bone-In Chicken Breasts
« Reply #-1 on: June 30, 2017, 12:45:49 PM »


My local grocery store is having a special on beautiful humongous fresh bone-in/skin-on half breasts. Buy One/Get One FREE. I just couldn't pass that up. For the longest time I've been cooking chicken thighs cause it's been getting harder and harder to find bone-in/skin-on half breasts. Whenever I do find them they usually want an arm and a leg for them. It's has to be bone-in/skin-on for me to smoke/cook in order to keep the meat moist and tender. Vacuum sealed the free package but I need to go back and some more before they stop this special.



Rubbed under/on the skin with roasted garlic extra virgin olive oil. Seasoned under/on skin with McCormick Chicken Seasoning and Fagundes Seasoning. Wrapped in plastic and fridged for 4 hours.

Preheated my MAK 2 Star to Smoke (~180ºF) with Cookinpellets Premium 100% Hickory. Smoked the breasts for 1½ hours. Bumped the temp to 350ºF and cooked until the internal temperature reached 170ºF. Rested 10 minutes.



These chicken half breasts were HUGE!! Did I mention they were huge? Humongous ... One smoked breast easily fed both of us. The breasts were 1¼ lbs each before cooking.
