One ~ 1 ~ one chicken'cha cha!

Irisa Raina 9


I call this dish “ one ~ 1 ~ one chicken because its all “ one cup, one tablespoon or one teaspoon”…
This chicken has a real kick to it…so if you don’t like it to hot put ½ the amount of the hot sauce in, it’s just that simple! You’ll still have enough marinade.
*** If you are BBQ-ing the chicken do it as the indirect heat method and baste with remaining marinade. You won’t want to put this directly over the coals as the brown sugar will burn before the chicken is cooked. If you want the skin crisp the last 5 minutes of cooking move it over the coals skin side down.

How to Make One ~ 1 ~ one chicken'cha cha!


  • 1Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Except the chicken.
  • 2Let it sit for about 5 minutes to soften the dry herbs.
  • 3Divide the marinade in ½. Refrigerate the ½ for later use.
  • 4Add the chicken breasts, to ½ of the marinade & cover and refrigerate for at least 3 hours, tossing frequently.
  • 5When you are ready to cook the chicken remove from the marinade “discarding the marinade “and place in a baking ***dish, cover the chicken with the remaining ½ of the sauce and bake uncovered.
  • 6Either BBQ or bake the chicken till it is done. I am baking this so I’ll have my oven on 375 for about 30 ~ 40 minutes.
  • 7How long this will take if you bake it will depend on how big your chicken pieces are. And how accurate your oven is.
