I received a pack of Urban Accents Santa Fe BBQ Dryglaze as a gift. It had been sitting in the drawer for a while and I got the itch to try it. I’m glad I did because it’s fantastic on chicken, which isn’t even mentioned on the package.
I was looking for something to go along with my Dutch Oven Baked Red Potatoes and saw that I had some boneless, skinless chicken thighs in the freezer. There’s no shortage of spice blends in my kitchen, but this one was calling out to me. At first, I didn’t understand what dry glaze meant — wouldn’t that just be a rub? Is it clever marketing? I flipped the package over and read the ingredients. The first one is granulated honey. Now this makes sense. the granulated honey will combine with oil and meat juices to create the glaze — GENIUS! Here’s what I did:
- 1 2-ounce package of Urban Accents Santa Fe BBQ Dry Glaze
- 4-8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (package says 2-3 pounds of meat)
- oil to coat
- 1 zipper bag big enough to hold all the chicken
- Grill set up for indirect cooking
Rub the chicken thighs with a thin coating of oil and place them in the zipper bag.
Dump the Dry Glaze packet into the bag. Move the chicken around in the bag to coat completely.
It will look something like this. If there are a couple of spots without seasoning, don’t worry about it. Just do your best. Seal the bag. Let it sit for 30 minutes. I gave it a mix a couple of times while waiting.
At the end of 30 minutes, the honey will be reconstituted and mix with the other spices to create the glaze.
Place the chicken thighs on the grill away from the heat and put the lid on. Let them cook for about 8 minutes. Flip them over and cook for a few more minutes until cooked through.
This is the pile of deliciousness you get when you’re done! So, where can you get this Dry Glaze? Mostly from grilling stores and gift shops. You can also buy them on Amazon.
Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’s:
- This turned out even better than I thought it would. I should have used more meat so we could have some left over. Live and learn, I guess.
- This chicken would go great on a sandwich with some lettuce and tomato. What would you put on it?
