    This recipe is quick and easy to make. It will be a delight for that chicken junky inside all of us. For better results, we recommend using only hickory or maple pellets, make sure internal temperature exceeds 180°F to avoid having an undercooked chicken. That way, you will bite through that crunchy outer skin to reach a succulent meat.
