Smoked Chicken Breast

I have really taken an interest in Smoking meat – but, had never Smoked any type of Chicken. So, I decided to give it a try. I started with some Boneless, Skinless, Chicken Breasts, and I marinated them in beer (Budlight is my choice) and Zesty Italian Dressing.

Then I mixed up a spice mixture to sprinkle on it before cooking it – here is that mixture:

1 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp Onion Powder
1 Tbsp Seasoning Salt
1 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 Tsp Paprika

Then I prepared my smoker – I had, earlier in the day, started my Apple Wood Chips soaking in water. Now, I started the charcoal and brought the smoker up to temp.

Once the temperature around up, I put the Chicken Breasts on the grill.

I let the Chicken warm up a bit, and after about 15 minutes, I start putting the Apple Wood Chips on the charcoal – and get the smoke rolling.

Then, for the next couple of hours, it is a delicate balance of keeping the temperature right, and continually adding small amounts of charcoal.

Then, for an added benefit – we started getting some Veggies ready. It was a mixture of several Veggies – Broccoli, Cauliflower, Carrots, Zucchini, etc. I put some Olive Oil, Butter, Sea Salt, and Black Pepper – then wrapped up the foil tight – and put it in the Smoker. My granddaughter, Leana, helped me with this part.

We also put some small Pork Chops on the smoker – seasoned with only Salt and Pepper. We also had some Salad, some Ranch Style Beans, Whole Kernal Corn, and Garlic Bread.

It was a good time for all, and the food was great. The Chicken Breasts came out some amazingly tender and juicy – and the flavors were amazing. One of the most important things that I have learned is that more spices isn’t necessarily better. This recipe is very simple – but, absolutely wonderful.

Here is the final result:
