Dizzy Chicken

Crassandra Boykin


My husband and I love to have friends over for backyard fun. We always have plenty food and drinks on hand. To ensure great flavor we marinate our meats overnight. While in the kitchen preparing the meat we though if our guests like to drink Jack Daniels then they will probably like to eat it as well. So we decided to add it to our marinade. The chicken was, should I say..... a smash!
