If your not a fan of traditional BBQ chicken – or your just tired of the same old thing, Cornell Chicken is the recipe for you!!! I discovered this recipe in Steven Raichlen’s BBQ USA and Im really impressed with the results I got. To give you a little background – In the 1940s, a man by the name of Robert Baker (a Cornell University professor) was asked to come up with an unusual chicken recipe for the governor of Pennsylvania. His recipe resulted in a tangy, crispy-skinned grilled chicken and has become the stuff of legends. In fact, it has been a star attraction at the New York State Fair ever since it was created. After trying the recipe myself, I can tell you that it is the best grilled chicken I’ve ever tasted… nothing else even comes close.
To honor Dr. Baker and his masterpiece I have created this video!
