“You can adjust the cooking time as you like it. You may prefer yours less cooked. We like well-done chicken--no bird-flavored jello here! Note, If you get the bacon crispy enough, you will have no worries about it getting soggy. Use a hoppy beer, like a pale ale or an IPA, or for something completely different, use a porter. If you are finishing this dish in the oven, basting helps a lot.”
