The late, great Lewis Grizzard once differentiated between “naked” and “nekkid” like this…
“Naked” is when you have no clothes on. “Nekkid” is when you have no clothes on and you’re up to something.
Well, the chicken I just pulled off the grill is going to be “up to something” in just about an hour. It’s going to be on a plate with some grilled corn-on-the-cob-off-the-cob and some steamed green beans. Then it’s going to be “up to” my mouth with a fork.
Oh, why is it “nekkid” chicken? Because while I usually like my chicken with a little kick (cayenne, cumin, ancho chile powder, garlic, etc.) there just ain’t no substitute for chicken with nothing on but a little Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Nekkid, and mmmmmmm, good!
Come on over….if you get here in time, there’ll be plenty to go around!
