Smoked General Tso’s Chicken

This was a silly idea that actually turned out pretty nice!

I started out with a boneless, skinless chicken breast and hit it with a pretty basic chicken rub.

I let it smoke at 250F with some hickory for about 90 minutes.  The internal temperature was about 120F at this point.

I made up a great sweet and spicy orange glaze to baste onto the chicken.  This was one cup of melted orange marmalade mixed with two teaspoons of habanero hot sauce.
