“Chris (lil sis) LOVES chicken! I think that one day, she might grow some feathers and start laying eggs. She and I are always on the hunt for new chicken dishes for us to try that require not a lot of work but is still delicious. She likes spicy stuff, so I know she's gonna like this. I know I did! Marinating time is included in the passive time”
