Recipe - Crab Chicken

Let me introduce you all to some Eastern Shore of Maryland flavor!

Crab Chicken.

It's quite possibly the best chicken ever.  I'm not biased or anything.  My Mama does know how to cook.

And she made this up.

Start with the following ingredients:
Apple Cider Vinegar
Olive Oil

Use only Perdue Chicken (duh - any other kind is gross, just my opinion of growing up with Perdues!) and rinse it off and put it in a gallon size baggie.  Use a fork and poke holes in the chicken.  Pour a little olive oil in there (I'd say 3-4 tablespoons) and then a lot of apple cider vinegar (around 1/2 cup maybe more?) and then a ton of old bay.  Seal the bag and mix it all up.  Fancy, huh?!

Do this marinating process the night before or morning of when you'll grill or bake it.  

When I lived in my condo, I just took it out of the marinade and put it in a dish and baked at 350 for 40 minutes until the chicken was done.  Now, we grill it and it's even better.  

Getcha some crab chicken, an ear of corn and a salad and you'll thank my Mama for a delish summer meal!


  1. Oooh yum!! We are BIG Old Bay fans (we use it in Bloody Marys - so legit) and I'll definitely have to try this

  2. This sounds really yummy! Can't wait to try it!

  3. I am so making this this weekend, and I will pretend like it my brilliant idea - my Maryland husband will be so impressed.

  4. I am simultaneously so excited to try this and kicking myself for not thinking of it! I'm from VA, right on the Chesapeake Bay, so obviously I LOVE Old Bay passionately. However, I don't eat this is totally perfect! I think I'll have it with a side of Utz Crab Chips :)

  5. This chicken sounds amazing! I will definitely be showing this to Brian tonight! Thanks so much for the recipe! :)

    And I'm totally with you on the Perdue thing -- any other kind really is gross.
