I’m not sure when exactly we started using this marinade, but I do remember when it made a big impression. Probably twenty-five years ago, my mom was at the grocery store with my youngest brother. They ran into some neighbors who asked what we were making for dinner. My brother, maybe five, without hesitation said “marijuana chicken!” My mom went red in the face and quickly explained that it was a marinated chicken and didn’t contain any marijuana.

As funny as that experience was, it is still the perfect description for this chicken! So addicting that it may be mistaken for something illegal.
