"The name comes from my daughter, who calls it 'wishy' chicken. She loves this dish! It's barbecued chicken using a really simple marinade." — Curt

Thanks Curt! This chicken is GREAT! I had to cook it in the oven (400 degrees for one hour) due to rainy weather. I made it the night before my husband's and son's birthday party and we reheated pieces on the grill, but it's even good cold. Everyone loved it.
Too bad there isn't a zero star rating. This is easily the saltiest chicken I have ever eaten. What a waste of perfectly good chicken. Horrible.
This was very easy to make- mix up the marinade, and leave the chicken in the fridge while at work. Despite other reviews, I did not find this too salty. Yes-it does seem like a lot of salt when you see it in the marinade, but after the chicken is cooked, you'll be glad you put it in! Excellent, moist chicken with lots of flavor. I used bone in chicken breast, and baked in the oven. My husband and 2 year old ate this with no complaints!
Boil chicken first very greasy if you don't.
Good marinade...used skinless chicken thigh cut way down on salt
I thought this was awful. It may be a little better without all the salt.
Barbque cooked the chicken to fast a little burnt around the edges, even though it was on lowest setting.
I used boneless chicken breasts and completely omitted the salt (we are on a low sodium diet). I marinated it for 9 hours them baked it in the marinade at 350 for 20 minutes then grilled it to add some color and smoky flavor. It was moist, juicy and very tasty. The family loved it and wanted to know what the recipe called for but I did not tell them the secret was Thousand Island dressing (out little secret) ;). Thanks Curt!
