How to make it

  • Combine the chicken and marinade in a large non-reactive pan. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 6.
  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  • Remove the chicken from the marinade and coat generously with some of the rub. Arrange the chicken, skin side-up, in a baking pan and pour the apple juice in the bottom. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and roast for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
