BBQ Chicken For Breakfast

This week’s BBQ cook did not include chicken but when my accountant friend, who does my taxes very reasonably and rarely orders BBQ, ask about chicken, I had to cook some for him.  As a result, I had a couple of extra thighs and it occurred to me I’d never tried them with an egg, so a meal was born.

I removed the bone from the thighs,

topped them with a little pepper jack cheese, and nuked just enough to melt the cheese a little (didn’t want to cook the meat anymore).

I topped it with the usual fried egg and enjoyed.  After I had everything cooking, it occurred to me that poached eggs would have made for a better shot.

The chicken had been cooked with Head Country Championship Seasoning and was very good and while the dish was good, it needed something, perhaps a little chopped onion and a very light coat of BBQ sauce to kick it up a notch.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

  1. That plate is just calling out for some hashbrowns in my opinion, Larry. You do wonderful things with a couple of eggs. Love them poached rather than fried.

  2. I'm feeling very sorry for myself that I don't have chicken, eggs and now thanks to Cathy hashbrowns in the house. Even though Safeway is only 5 minutes away, we're having a Spring blizzard.

  3. oh how I have missed your breakfast recipes... a fried egg on top of bbq chicken.... genius!!!!

  4. If anyone can figure out how to take your breakfast to another level, it is you. I don't think this is the last we have seen of this dish.

  5. Larry, Poached eggs would have been great with this dish...better yet with Hollandaise Sauce! I've made chicken omelets but I've never tried eggs with leftover chicken. To kick it up a notch, you could use Tabasco or a bit of one of those island hot sauces that you had us try the other day. See you very soon! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  6. Is it my imagination but is your blog playing music and chirping birds?

    I am not surprised that this is a delicious combination. You do breakfast like a king. Love it.
