    I used this basic recipe to cook 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and it was fantastic. I made a paste with the butter, Hefner dust and the Freakin’ Greek and coated the breasts with it.
    When I put them on the grill I sprinkled Freakin’ Greek mix on top.
    When the internal temp reached about 100 I flipped the breasts and basted them again with the butter mix and sprinkled them again with the Freakin’ Greek mix.
    When they reached 165 I pulled them off the grill and served them.
    Fantastic!! You can’t go wrong with this basic recipe.

    A Capon is a castrated rooster (Kind of like a Steer in Cattle). As a teenager I showed Capons at the Houston Livestock Show. They grow bigger than normal size fryers. Enjoy.
