    1. Put the chicken into a bowl (burn or pluck off the feathers or whatever family tradition you have) and rinse it in water

    2. Add 2-3 heaping tablespoons of vinegar and a squeeze of half a lemon (or a splash of concentrated lemon juice) into the bowl

    4. Massage, rub and rinse the chicken.

    5. Pat it dry

  3. Into the food processor add the bacon & seasoning 

  4. Start by adding 1/2 cup of oil into the pureed rub

    1. More oil can be added based on the consistency that you prefer 

  5. Marinade the chicken from an hour to over night for the most flavor

  6. Lay chicken on a baking sheet or hot grille.

  7. Cook at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until chicken is done. (TIP- When you poke into the meatiest part of your chicken and clear juices come out, then you are seconds away from it being done.)
