A good friend recently gave up red meat for Lent. She hadn't had a hot dog in years, but for some reason she got a hankering for one as soon as she couldn't have them. This BBQ chicken corn dog recipe satisfies her craving, and honestly, it's better than many classic corn dog recipes. It's sweet and tangy from the BBQ sauce, and the shredded chicken has a really nice texture.
The key to making this recipe work is putting the log-shaped chicken mixture in the freezer after adding the skewers. If the chicken logs are not frozen, you'll have a really hard time making them stay together as they fry. It takes an extra hour of prep time, but it's totally worth it.
