    KCShell's Note:

    I think this came from the Frugal gourmet's tv show - was it back in the 80's? Anyway, this technique of "sealing in the juices" is wonderful and it ends the controversy (at least with me) whether the chicken on the grill is "really done". Try this.

      You can also use this method with a whole chicken which is how Jeff Smith demonstrated it on his show. When I want to cook a whole chicken for shredded meat, this is the only way I do it now. Just skip the grilling and bbq sauce. You can even use up to a 4.5 pound chicken! It still cooks all the way through after 1 hour of resting in the liquid. One note, though. I usually have my chicken at or near room temperature before I start the cooking process.
