Last night as I finished off a jar of Sweet and Spicy dry roasted peanuts which are my current favorite I got to the bottom and noticed an unusual amount of dust at the bottom. I thought that might make a great seasoning for the chicken thighs I just bought.


Then this morning I was up early making myself a rare breakfast and as I was pouring the bacon drippings into a bowl for disposal a light bulb came on again. I got out the chicken thighs and dipped them in the bacon fat then into the peanut dust. I did this to half then made a Hawaiian type marinade for the rest.

Later I fired up the pit with Mesquite and Hickory then cooked them up along with some fresh pineapple.


It looked and smelled great but after a large breakfast I wasn't real hungry. Still I had to try it out.


Oh yes, I will no longer toss out the dust at the end of a jar. I will save it for the next round of chicken. The Hawaiian style came out pretty good as well.

Peanut dust much like cereal dust is mm mm good. Nice looking chicken West Coast Chris.

Point for sure
