“I modified this recipe from a tea smoked chicken recipe in one of my cookbooks. My husband dubbed it "evil" chicken because he couldn't stop eating it. I find it turns out best when you use a whole chicken. However you can substitute boneless breasts. I serve with steamed rice and broccoli.”

Directions

  1. Combine sherry, soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, crushed peppercorns, onion, tea leaves, orange peel and juice from orange in a bowl and mix well.
  2. Pour over chicken and marinade in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
  3. If using a whole chicken bake at 350 for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until chicken is done.
  4. If using boneless breasts I prefer to cook it in a slow cooker on low for at least 2 hours but you can also bake at 350 for at least 45 minutes or until chicken is done.
  5. Use remaining marinade from roasting pan or slow cooker as a gravy.
  6. (You may need to thicken).
