When I tell you that this recipe will bless your soul, I really mean it! Take your time and let the marinade sit overnight. It will really penetrate the chicken and leave it moist and flavorful.
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tbsp hot sauce
1/2 cup dijon mustard
1 tbsp grated orange zest
10-15 pieces of chicken
1/4 cup Plain BBQ sauce
3 tbsp agave or honey
Mix all marinade ingredients together in a small bowl. Divide the chicken and place into 2-3 freezer size storage zip-lock bags. Pour marinade evenly in each bag to coat the chicken pieces. Mix it up well and seal. Refrigerate overnight if possible. If you don't have the luxury of time, marinate it for at least 1 hour.
Once chicken has been marinated, remove chicken from marinade and baked covered for 1-2 hours on 350 Degrees. The time will vary based on what part of chicken you used. Dark meat cooks longer than white meat. I like to cook my chicken until the meat starts to separate from the bone. While your chicken is baking, prepare the glaze. In a small saucepan, mix the BBQ sauce with the agave or honey. During the last 10 minutes of cooking the chicken, brush the glaze on the chicken. Cook uncovered during those last 15 minutes.
