My mom made this in Florida years ago. Four decades.Not sure who copied who but the taste is no question. Copycat recipe? Mom would soak the chicken in this for at least 1 hr.then grill the chicken and boil the marinade and base the chicken with it. I make a double batch and use half for marinade and half for the basting. No one ever got sick from moms chicken but I just could never bring my self to use it twice.
