|I don't know these people, but I bet they were eating chicken!|
Aunt Donna submitted this recipe for Barbecued Chicken because it evoked powerful memories (it's also great for your Labor Day picnic!). As she relayed it to me, it was the only way my Grandparents would grill chicken, and it reminded her of church barbecues she attended as a child. She also remembered sharing it with my mother and grandmother at a NY interstate rest stop when she was traveling from Binghamton to New London (where we lived) to work. It must have been 1973, I remember thinking then that she was cool, and I still do.
This is very easy, old school chicken and it is really good. For such a simple recipe, it packs a lot of great taste. When I made it, it brought back memories of childhood Summers and backyard barbecues when my own mother used to make chicken this way. I will definitely be making it again soon. Who knows? Maybe it will take you back.

1 cup vinegar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon Old Bay or Poultry Seasoning
1 tablespoon salt
Freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 to 2 pounds chicken, either boneless or bone-in breasts.
Mix vinegar, oil, egg and seasonings in a blender until thoroughly combined. If you are using bone-in chicken, par-boil it for 20 minutes. Place chicken in a Ziploc bag with marinade and let sit in refrigerator for 3 hours - overnight. Grill until the juices run clear, about 10-20 minutes.
