I am thawing one of those 10 lb chicken quarters bags. Going to use few to make some southern church chicken and just going to simmer the rest. Chicken and dumplnigs would be great as would chicken spaghetti but trying to keep it low carb. Any Idea's on what do make with it keeping fairly low carb?

Stewed with chicken broth tomato onion and garlic maybe some peppers too. We usually eat that over rice, but it’s also pretty good by itself.

Simple oven fried chicken or Chicken Paprikash if you like paprika, served with a celery salad or a green salad. 🍻

Chicken Paprikash, chicken Marsala and Cornell chicken all sound tasty to me. All can be fit into keto / low carb. Cornell chicken on the grill is intoxicating

There are a number of cold chicken salads out there.

We buy the Mission "Carb Balance" flour tortillas which have 19g of carbs..... but have 15g of fiber which results in 6 net carbs per tortilla which is an amazingly low number. Compare that to a normal flour tortilla which has about 30g of carbs. We use them for quesadillas, breakfast burrito's as well as chicken and beef burritos and after baking in a pan like enchiladas, we cool and cut into individual servings and wrap in cling wrap.

That Chicken Paprikash sounds good. I ordered some Sweet Hungarian Paprika I figured out can make chicken spaghetti with Spiralized zucchini. That 10 lb bag looks like a lot of chicken and needed it out of the freezer. I have another in there also. I have to learn a sale is not a sale if you dont need it! I will be doing grilled chicken kind of like Cornell with a mop but that only take care of a few pieces.

JJ, chicken paprikash was my Dad’s all time favorite meal. My Mom, would make it all the time for him, until she passed away, at 43. Then my Dad hooked up with this bimbo that couldn’t cook at all. I remember having burnt fried eggs for dinner. Then I met Judy, who could cook really good, and I hardly ever went home. We got married at 18 & 19 & have been together 56 years. Her cooking was the thing that hooked me, also she was hot!!

The Cornell recipe and variants Pops (RIP) posted are just amazing. When I grill some of that neighbors heads start popping out of houses for a whiff lol.

That Recipe from Pops is a Good one! In my area of PA, there are similar Chicken BBQ'S for Fire Dept and other Charities.
The First 4 Ingredients are the basic Conell Chicken Recipe. The rest are the additions Pops Dad must have added or got a recipe for.

This is my Version....

Pit Chicken aka, Roadside Chicken

This Chicken is Grilled/Smoked and sold all across the country at Roadside Stands and at Firehouse Fund Raiser BBQ's. Here is my version

Pit Chix Basting Sauce

2C Apple Cider Vinegar
1C Olive or other Oil
2T Worcestershire Sauce or more to taste
1/4C Brown Sugar
1T Smoked Paprika
2 tsp Granulated Garlic
2 tsp Granulated Onion
2 tsp Fine Grind Black Pepper
1 tsp Celery Salt
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper or Chipotle powder. Add more if you like Heat.
1/2 tsp Grnd Allspice
2Lrg Egg Yolks

This stuff is Tangy with a Sweet and Spicy Finish. I like to make a Double batch and add 1T Kosher Salt to half. Marinate the Chix for 4-6 hours with the salted half of the Brine/Basting Sauce then use the rest to baste during the Cook.

Grill/Smoked over indirect heat at 300-325°F until the Internal Temp (IT) reaches 175°F. If the skin is not Crisp enough, a few minutes, turning frequently, over direct heat will get you there.

I would squirt the Sauce on with a Sports Bottle about every 15-20 minutes and used all but 1/2 cup that I took to the Table to add a fresh Punch of flavor. Great Stuff!...JJ
