Aunt Esther’s BBQ Chick’n

Posted on

I am naming this after my late Aunt Esther since she always made such great Dutchy picnic style food. Also, since today is Purim, I thought the name also recognized Queen Esther in being integral in spoiling King Ahasuerus’ plans to kill the Jews. Although I have no known Jewish ancestors, let’s celebraet Purim and the memory of my Aunt Esther by enjoying good food and drink today!

I needed to make the 2 left over Chickpeas Cutlets a little more festive so gave them a back-yard picnic flair by making up a tiny batch of BBQ sauce out of what was on hand in my cupboard.

Aunt Esther’s BBQ Chick’n

BBQ sauce
1 Tbs. ketchup
1/4 tsp. yellow mustard
1/4 tsp. black strap molasses
1/2 tsp. onion powder
3-4 drops chipotle tabaso

Whisk all together and slather over all sides of:
2 Chickpeas Cutlets.

I covered them in a shallow casserole and put them in the oven for an hour at a low temperature (~250°) to let all of the flavors get into the cutlets.

I served them up with some homemade coleslaw and cornbread wedges. I could see my whole family enjoying a meal like this around the old green picnic table in our and Aunt Esther’s shared backyards.

Photographed below 7/4/1971, we are at one of these grand picnics of many years past.This is the only photo I can think of where all of the cousins I have on my father’s side of the family are in one photo. Queen Esther is seated on the right, holding the leash of our dog.
