David Harlan is a member of the Westside 4-H Club in Jonesboro. He has received blue ribbons for his barbecued chicken at the county and district levels. David prepares his prize recipe as follows:

1. Remove excess fat from split broiler or chicken breasts.
2. Mix 1/4 C cooking oil and 1/2 teaspoon of salt in a bowl and turn meat in oil to coat it.
3. Place chicken on medium hot coals or gas grill.
4. Baste chicken with zesty Italian salad dressing every five to ten minutes.
5. Chicken should cook approximately one hour, so reduce heat or move chicken to a cooler part of the grill if it browns too soon.
6. About five minutes before chicken is done, baste your favorite barbecue sauce on chicken.
7. Remember, be safe with food handling and with fire safety.
