Barbecue Chicken, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli

I had tons of leftover barbecue sauce from the ribs we made this past weekend. I decided to grill some chicken leg quarters in honor of it getting as hot as summer around here. I made some easy steamed broccoli and creamy garlic mashed potatoes. I am so glad the weather is getting warm, perfect for grilling. Even though the charcoal grill is a pain sometimes, the flavor is so superior to food cooked on a gas grill.

Grilled Chicken Leg Quarters

1 cup of barbecue sauce
4 chicken leg quarters

Heat coals in grill. Reserve 1/3 cup sauce to serve with the chicken. Add chicken, making sure not to place it directly over the coals in order to avoid flare ups. Baste the chicken with 1/4 cup of the barbecue sauce. Grill for 45 minutes, turning and basting every 15 minutes. Serve with reserved sauce.

Creamy Garlic Mashed Potatoes

7 to 10 red new potatoes, quartered
1/4 cup cream
2 tablespoons butter
3 cloves garlic, minced

Place potatoes in large saucepan. Fill pan with enough water to cover potatoes, salt the water liberally. Boil potatoes, approximately 20-25 minutes, until fork tender. Combine cream, butter and garlic in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to low. Simmer on very low heat while potatoes cook. Drain potatoes and mash with a hand masher. Stir in cream mixture and season to taste with salt and pepper.
