Wayfields had split chicken breast for .98 a pound. Bought 8 iils and seasoned about 4 llbs to egg for dinner. I chopped up fresh cilantro and drizzled olive oil and adobo seasoning for the marinade. Heated the egg up to 250 with the platesetter and cooked the splits to 160. A tad bit underspiced for myself but dinner guest thought they rocked. I dipped mine in baby rays BBQ sauce. The remaining chicken will be combined with rice and stuffed into fresh bell peppers.
While the egg was hot, I burnt off the build up.....noting like an egg at 750 for 1 hour..............WOW.....is all I can say. :cheer: :cheer: :cheer:

    Hey Jan, hope you are well. Yea the breasts have been on sale forever it seems. I have several packages in the freezer. Cooking chicken often definately forces you to get creative with the flavoring.

    I just bought a small chest freezer, so I will be stocking up. I love the egg. I remember being a child and eating chicken breast cooked to 400 degrees f. I am so glad that I know the correct temp to cook a breast to, it makes the chicken so moist.

    you only have 1 large? LOL and you call yourself an Egghead....just teasing.

    My platesetter and egg were brutal looking, my gasket has been shot for 2 years so I figured WTH, I mine as well burn it back white.

    the platesetter and the side body appeared to be turning back white. I didn't open it yet to see the dome. I had that thang way up high, flames shooting out the top and heat radiating 3 foot from the egg. It will burn off a lot of gunk but it usually burns the gasket off also, in my eggsperience. Like I mentioned earlier.....my gasket is shot already. I need to break down and buy the rutland for this egg also.
