    Chef TraceyMae's Note:

    This is a variation of a recipe from Clarks Outpost in Tioga, Texas. It's best to start it the day before so it has enough time to marinate. Everybody raves about it!

      If you use chicken parts, like breast, thigh or drumsticks, reduce the cooking time to 1 hour, 30 minutes-ish. And reduce cooking time even more if using a convection oven.

      This chicken recipe is probably one of the best recipes I've ever tried! Very easy and delivers a moist and delicious chicken. I finished mine off in the convection oven so the skin would crisp up, but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for a delicious dish! Made for Aussie Swap :)

      This was amazing! I had chicken I was going to use for this but it went bad before I discovered the error. So - I threw frozen chicken breasts and legs in the marinade in the fridge overnight. As for the rub - I cut it down to 1/3 of what you specify. It was the perfect amount. I should have saved the extra - but threw it out then realized my mistake. :) DH thought this was so yummy! We had this with salad and wild rice. Thanks for sharing! Made for the June 2009 Aussie/NZ recipe swap.
