Original Psycho Chicken

This recipe is simply something I threw together one night. After posting it on Cooking Light's bulletin board it became such an enormous success, it was suggested I submit my recipe to the magazine. Cooking Light's version of Psycho Chicken appeared as the Featured Reader Recipe in the June, 2002 issue-- and while I was grateful to have been spotlighted, I couldn't help feeling that the published rendition lost something of the original spirit of the recipe. Psycho Chicken is less about ingredients than it is a technique-- it is about a slashing and slathering method of infusing flavor into the chicken, then dredging the meat in the juices after cooking. Play with the quantities of flavorings, change herbs, don't even worry about whether you use a rack. But use the method. Please. THAT'S what Psycho Chick is all about.
