Island Smoked Chicken

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Galley Wench

Another recipe for my stove-top smoker. Posting this for ZWT III tour. Great for entertaining . . . smoke in advance, then place on grill to brown. Prep time does not include marinade time.

I LOVE my stove top smoker and really enjoyed your recipe, something different from the usual. I used your recipe#257757 in the marinade. Instead of alder wood chips I used cherry, and finished them up under the broiler. Thanks for a great recipe! Made for ZWT5 for Hell's Kitchen Angels.
