RhubarBQ Chicken and Grilled Romaine

I got two stalks of rhubarb in my box. Not wanting to mix them with a pile of sugar, I searched the web for savory rhubarb recipes and found this: Savor the Rhubarb. Take some time to explore this site, there are many nuggets of unintentional comedy gold. I didn’t end up using anything from this site, but I just had to share because it brought me a lot of giggles.

In the end I went for a pun, RhubarBQ! I also wanted to use my lettuce for something other than your standard salad, so I tried Grilled Romaine.

Grilling...?

Grilling…?

I basically followed the recipes in the links, so click through to check them out. I did add a bit of Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke to the rhubarb sauce for a little extra flavor. The chicken was pretty basic, boneless, skinless thighs seasoned with salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning, grilled until nearly done and then basted a few times with the sauce.

Summer is for grilling.

This was a yummy meal prepared mainly on the grill, so it’s good for those warm summer days when you don’t want to fire up the oven. The sauce is tangy and slightly sweet and made a great complement for the chicken. Give it a try the next time you’re overloaded with rhubarb! The lettuce was slightly softened but still had plenty of crunch in the center, and it was great with just parmesan sprinkled across the top.
