Cornell Chicken Marinade Northern Spice Company Style

Updated: Sep 8, 2019

This fabulous chicken on the grill recipe is a MUST HAVE!! Easy as ONE TWO THREE!!

Fact: Cornell Chicken was the creation of Professor Dr. Rober Baker, who developed a marinade and/or basting sauce back in the 1950s that is a tomato-free vinaigrette, enriched with egg and shot through poultry spice. (A great use of Northern Spice Company Northern Herb No Salt Poultry Seasoning) Slow-cooked over charcoal, the chicken comes off the grill with a gold glaze, its skin delivering a salty punch in a plush glove.

Dr. Cornell was known as the "Edison of the Poultry Industry," he was inducted into the American Poultry Hall of Fame in 2004, two years before his death. --Popular Plates BBQ 2010
