South Carolina Mustard BBQ Sauce for a QUICK Rotisserie Chicken Meal - 52 Uses for a Rotisserie Chicken

Pin It Now!

NOTHING could be easier.

Pre-cooked, pre-seasoned Rotisserie Chicken.  Simply separate the leg/thigh quarter from the bird, drizzle the mustard sauce (see recipe below) and bake (350 degrees for 20-30 minutes.  I did wrap in aluminum foil for the first 20 minutes and uncovered for the last 10 for crispy skin).

But the secret is in the sauce.  Just add the ingredients in a mason jar, shake like hell and you have the sauce.  No simmer, nothing complicated, just measure and mix.

This is one of those "could not be easier" meals.  Hands on work maybe 5 minutes or less.

And it does pay off in taste!

As to the sauce, it is most popular in South Carolina.  SC was settled by a large group of Germans.  As the popularity of BBQ spread to the region, the locals adapted their favorite condiment (picture German brats and mustard) into a sauce worthy of the Que.

For a quick dinner like this or as an "extra" sauce offered at your next BBQ, this classic sauce has a place.

I made a small batch.  The sauce is rarely "Canned" for long term storage.  Make a batch and use up in only a couple of weeks, lasts fine in the fridge.

Since it is a Jam Jar recipe (just add ingredients in a mason jar and shake like hell), the small amount is perfect!

OK... Here's what I did...

This simple recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Simple but Next Level Dishes"!

Kind of an odd title for these posts. But the longer sentence is... Simple recipes that are easy and inexpensive that will take your cooking to the next level... Things like easy pickled items (I always have a jar of Pickled Red Onions for sandwiches in my fridge). Or how about the easiest bread to make in the world... Beer Bread that is tasty on it's own but also makes a wonderful open face pizza style sandwich... With easy to make Tomato Sauce. Or how about Roasting Garlic for a spread on toast points for a unique appetizer. Infusing Oil with Herbs or spices or spicy peppers. Or how about making your own BBQ sauce. Nothing sets you apart as a grill master like setting out a jar of your own specialty BBQ Sauce.

You get the idea. These recipes are very simple, take very little time but will set you apart as a better cook...

This recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Uses For a Rotisserie Chicken"  (Now close to 100!)...I am so confused... $5.49 for a fully cooked, fully seasoned Oven Roasted, Rotisserie Chicken.

So, I can either rail against the machine, or learn to embrace the beauty that is the $5 chicken! In this pin are recipes I have made, and recommend. MORE than 52 (I just can't stop)..
