The Bonus

Our bonus chicken from the Best L'il Porkhouse came home with us in a paper clamshell lined with waxed paper, a goodwill gift from Ken Flach, the owner/chef of the Porkhouse. We'd have been happy just to sample his beef and pork barbecues, but he insisted that we had ordered chicken, and chicken we should have. Nice guy, but we could barely finish the platter we ordered, so we brought the chicken home.

It made for a splendid dinner that I didn't have to cook. We just grilled a couple of ears of corn and steamed a handful of sugar snap peas to go alongside while we zapped the chicken to warm it in the microwave.

This is sweet, sticky, smoky heaven. Even reheated, the meat was moist with a kiss of lingering smoke under the sauce. The sauce was spicy enough to give our lips a hum of heat but not overpowering. Goldilocks would have pronounced it, "Just right!"

Our thanks go out to Pat Fusco for recommending the Porkhouse and to Ken Flach for making lip-smacking, finger-licking food.

Pooh. Not open on Monday.
But your sticky, meaty pictures sure have tempted us!

Greg, we really lucked out this time. I don't expect more free dinners thanks to their mistake, but I'll go back just for the delicious barbecue.
