Chicken and A Spare Goose

AKA chicken and asparagus.

Spring time means time to exchange the propane tank and fire up the grill.  We love to BBQ.  Yummy home cooked food without heating up the house.  What’s not to like?

This is where I should put in a pic of the grill warming up or even a shot of the food grilling, but I for reasons unknown to me did not take a single pic of the grill.

So anyway…

Boneless, skinless chicken thighs, doused with soy sauce and sprinkled with garlic powder and parsley.  I let them soak while I washed and broke the asparagus.

I like my goose super thin.  I buy it in bulk when I find it the right size and on sale.

Then I bag and freeze it so we can have it whenever we want.  It is super easy to prepare.  The easiest and fastest is in the microwave with some butter and a sprinkle seasoning.

On this day I grilled it.  I fashioned a little goose boat out of tinfoil, put four dabs of Smart Balance on it.  Smart Balance is awesome.  It has no hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oil in it!  I like the way it tastes too.

I seasoned it with salt free organic seasoning I get at Costco and garlic.  There are few things in this world that I make without garlic.

I made foil packets for the chicken, putting two thighs per packet, 

The packets ensure that the meat cooks thoroughly without becoming dry.  When the chicken was just about done I took them out of the packets setting them directly on the grill and brushed BBQ sauce on them.  If I had been thinking I would have seared grill marks onto them to make them pretty, but I was side tracked.

While the chicken was cooking happily in its packets I set the asparagus boat on the BBQ with loose piece of foil over the top and cooked until they were the perfect combination of tender/crunchy.


Super simple and SO good.  I lost track of how many times Der and the boys told me how good it was.
