Broiled Chicken

When I was growing up, my family was a meat and potatoes family.  I don't ever remember my mom making us a casserole.  We always had steak, chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, peas. . . . never a casserole.  Of course, I live on casseroled now, but sometimes I just want meat and potatoes.  Here is my mom's broiled chicken recipe.  It is easy and so delicious.  It's great left over, cold , right from the refrigerator.   I made it last night and as soon as I'm finished with this post I'm raiding the fridge!

Broiled Chicken

1 whole fryer, cut into parts (or buy chicken legs, split breasts or any other parts of the chicken you enjoy)
garlic powder

Wash chicken and remove most of the skin.  I always leave a little bit of skin on the chicken because it gives it such good flavor.  Pat dry and put on a broiler pan (or line a baking pan with aluminum foil).  Sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder all over chicken pieces.  (I'm always heavy handed with these spices, but it makes it that more delicious!)  Place a small dab of butter on each chicken piece.  Place under the broiler for about 15 minutes on each side until each side of the chicken piece is browned (almost burnt).  I even turn it over again and let it stay under the broiler for a few more minutes.  Remove chicken from pan, place on a plate, serve and enjoy!
