Chicken Sarcastro


Originally, I was going to post this dish in honor of all the little Lee Greenwoods who, this past Memorial Day, were boasting of their unalloyed patriotism and support of the military; despite their craven refusal to serve in the armed forces they claim to love so much.

Then I realized that was soooo last month. Besides, why waste good food on those jerks when I can waste it on you jerks?


3 lbs. whole chicken (This is really a matter of taste. I prefer chicken thighs. It’s cheaper. So am I.)

1/4 cup garlic, chopped fine

1 tsp salt

2 tbsp crushed black pepper

2 tbsp white soy sauce (Question: How racist is Sarcastro? Answer: So racist even his soy sauce is white.)

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp bourbon (It ain’t Sarcastro unless there’s some bourbon in it.)

1 bottle Sweet Thai Chili sauce (preferably Mae Ploy or one of the other brands available at your local Asian market).

Mix all the ingredients and marinate for 3-4 hours. Then grill over charcoal until done.

Serve with steamed Jasmine rice and salad.

    This may or may not have been an actual interview snippet, but it is in my head and this is the internet, so here goes

    G. Gordon Liddy: So, Lee Greenwood, what made you decide to start writing patriotic songs?

    Lee Greenwood: Uh . . . well, I’ve only written that one.
