Family Style Broiled Chicken Recipe

I wanted to put chicken on the menu for tonight’s supper, but I wanted to keep it simple and basic. This Family Style Broiled Chicken Recipe is simple and quick to put together. There is very little prep time so the chicken is broiled and on the table in less than an hour. This recipe has a simple blend of flavors that complement the chicken very well. I thought the smoked paprika was a nice touch; adding a touch of smoked flavoring. After brushing the chicken with the butter mixture several times I had quite a bit of the chopped onion left in the sauce, so I finished off by making sure I brushed the rest of the onion on the chicken during its final cooking time. If you don’t like a lot of onion, just leave it behind, using it just to flavor the sauce. If you’re looking for a simple and good recipe for supper, give this Family Style Broiled Chicken Recipe a try; you and your family will really enjoy it.

    Sounds good enough to try tonight

  2. I tried this recipe last week and it was delicious! And I also had a lot of fun because I prepared it with my boyfriend during our cooking class. He gave me an unusual Valentine’s present – he made a private booking for one of the courses organized by Zac’s cooking school in our native Vancouver – cooking classes for couples so now we’re collecting interesting recipes to come up with during that course. This was a very impressive meal, and I think we’ll keep it in our “cooking for company” arsenal. 🙂
