Sweet Tea Barbecued Chicken
Marinades sometimes use coffee or espresso, and that inspired me to add tea to perk up a barbecue sauce.—Kelly Williams, Forked River, New Jersey
Cuisine: American

  • 1 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons seafood seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 chicken (4 to 5 pounds), cut up
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce
  • ½ cup sweet tea
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Pour apple juice and water into a large shallow roasting pan. Mix seafood seasoning, paprika, garlic powder and pepper; rub over chicken. Place in roasting pan.
  2. Bake, covered, until juices run clear and a thermometer reads 170° to 175°, about 50-60 minutes. Transfer chicken to a foil-lined 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Whisk barbecue sauce and sweet tea; brush some of mixture over chicken.
