Evil Chicken

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."


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.
Pour over chicken and marinade in refrigerator for at least 2 hours.
If using a whole chicken bake at 350 for 1 1 / 2 to 2 hours or until chicken is done.
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.
Use remaining marinade from roasting pan or slow cooker as a gravy.
