- 1tablespoon poultry seasoning
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Combine the basting sauce ingredients in a blender and mix until emulsified.
Step 3Place the chicken halves in a large zip-top plastic bag and pour in 1/2 cup of the sauce.
Step 4Seal the bag and shake gently to coat the chicken evenly.
Step 5Refrigerate for 2 hours.
Step 6Remove the chicken from the marinade and wipe off excess sauce from the surface. Discard the marinade.
