    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Plan ahead the chicken needs to marinate for 8 hours or up to 24 hours. Although I have used 2 tablespoons Louisana hot sauce, you can add in more if desired, trust me the chicken will not be overly spicy!

      This recipe was originally from Bon Appetit in June of 2000. I loved it then and love it now. Kittencal made a couple of adjustments. I would follow the original a little more closely such as using 3 tbsp of hot sauce, a large onion, and only using 3 tbsp butter for the coating. Thanks for posting!

      This wonderful chicken was juicy and tender with an amazing flavor. The marinade was quick and easy to make and added so much to the chicken. The legs and thighs which marinaded for 24 hours were very tasty with a crispy and golden skin. Tonight we enjoyed the chicken warm, I can't wait to have it cold for lunch tomorrow. Thank you for sharing this excellant recipe Kitten.

      Excellent chicken. My family loves it. I used olive oil to drizzle over the chicken...better for you. Love it Kittencal. Thank you again.
