Neely's Barbecue Chicken, with corn bread and corn-on-the-cob.
I promised I’d try to reproduce some of the recipes of the wonderful food we ate during our trip to Memphis (audio slideshow) in April. And this chicken recipe was easy to duplicate, since I found the recipe on the Food Network, courtesy of the Neelys.
For those who don’t know, Patrick and Gina Neely have their own show on the Food Network. Their restaurant is about a 10 minute cab ride from downtown Memphis. It doesn’t look like much: kind of a dive with red Formica tables and some neon Bud signs hanging on the walls. But the food is fantastic and cheap!!
This barbecue chicken was my favorite: tender meat with a thousand flavors eminating from a not too spicy, savory barbecue sauce. This is roots cooking at its best.
