Amaretto Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Sarah

Hubby and I came up with this using the standard Tortured Chicken recipe as a base and adding some of the Amereto we'd bought the day before to the mix. A sweet chicken that was just as good hot as it was cold- even a friend's kids were picking the meat off of the bones.
