This recipe dates back to 1946, and it's still quite popular across New York state and is usually the only chicken dish featured at local carnivals and fairs, often called 'State Fair Chicken'. The marinade is excellent and produces juicy chicken that's perfectly seasoned every time. It's often served with Syracuse Salt Potatoes.
