Chicken Breasts

edited 3:29AM in EggHead Forum
Got my new egg assembled finally.....[p]I have some split chicken breasts ready to go. [p]My very first attempt at the egg. [p]I have seen various ideas of how to cook these (keep at 350 and cook 10-15 mins each side is what I have seen the most)[p]If i follow this method should I be alright. I would like for it to smoke a bit longer. Does that mean I should cook longer at lower temp? like 225?

    You should be able to get PLENTY of smoke on chicken in 20-30 minutes. Going lower and slower might result in RCS, Rubber Chicken Syndrome. I'd roast them at 350ish and maybe consider raising the temps to 450ish for a couple of minutes at the end to crisp the skin if you feel that is appropriate.[p]TNW

    Thanks Whiz.[p]So should I flip them at the half way point in the Egg or is that not necessary.[p]When should BBQ be applied. Maybe with 5 mins left or so?[p]sorry for questions but I have company coming unexpectingly now and Im feeling pressure time wise?

  • I haven't found the need to flip the chicken when I've done these.

    As for the sauce, put it on during the last few minutes so the sugar doesn't burn.
