BBQ Recipes: Grilled Orange Chicken The WhiteTrash Way

I told about the orange chicken.
You know the bbq that was really grillin'
Well here's another version to try
And still look the author in the eye
Looking through a glass onion
Oh yeah!
So I told you about Charbroil's version of BBQ Orange Chicken. Well I liked the recipe as printed a lot. But I felt it was missing some depth and body, so here's my version of...

Grilled Orange Chicken - The White Trash Way
My modifications are in red. Tell me - does this qualify as a new recipe?

2 1/2lbs chicken parts

Sauce Ingredients:
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/2 Tsp of ground ginger
  • 1 Tsp of dried onion powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • Kosher Salt to taste
  • Fresh ground pepper to taste
  • Zest of one orange
Cooking Instructions:
  1. Light a chimney of charcoal. Meanwhile prepare your grill for a two zone cook. (Don't know what that is - well it will be detailed in a future post.)
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together all sauce ingredients except salt and pepper, until smooth.
  3. Place sauce in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Boil for one minute and reduce heat to a simmer. I usually do this on my stove - yes, it is gas powered.
  4. Let sauce simmer and reduce until it thickens to a light syrup.
  5. Once the sauce is thick - taste it carefully it could burn your lips. Adjust the seasoning by adding salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Once your charcoal in the chimney is lit, place it on the hot zone of the grill. Let the grill come to a medium heat.
  7. Lightly oil your grill grates.
  8. Lightly salt and pepper your chicken
  9. Place chicken pieces on grill away from heat, skin side down and cook 20 minutes.
  10. Turn chicken, and grill for 10 additional minutes.
  11. Brush chicken with sauce and turn occasionally cooking for an additional 10 minutes.
  12. Place chicken over direct heat and to char and crisp the skin and sauce. Turning frequently. Do not walk away - This sauce has a lot of sugar and will burn easily.
  13. Let rest 5 minutes and serve.
Give it a shot both ways. I think you'll enjoy my modifications to the original recipe.

There's been a lot of talk on the Food Bloggers Forum about what is a new recipe, what is an adaptation of a recipe, and what is a copyright violation.

In short: The list of ingredients and basic cooking techniques can't be copyrighted but the narrative of the instructions can.

I'd say with all the mods, this is a new recipe IMO but would probably include an "inspired by" credit in there.

I like your version much better!
