I quartered a chicken and allowed 50 minutes in the oven and the result was beautifully moist chicken but when it came to the flavour well the opinions ranged from a reluctant o'kay to lip smacking good. I must admit I wasn't sure about having white pepper and then fresh ground pepper so added a 1/4 teaspoon of hot cayenne and that gave it a spicy taste. I only used about a half of the basting liquid and tried to make a sauce with what was left by heating in the microwave and then thicking with some cornflour (cornstarch) paste the result was a nice looking sauce but tasted way too sweet to use. Thank you Sharon123 made for your Cook-a-thon in memory of Jim.
I made this on the grill. Came out nice sweet and crispy.
