Can I marinate (and use a flavor injector to insert marinade into) a whole chicken using this recipe
late tonight and then cook the chicken tomorrow night? How long can I marinate a whole chicken with this recipe until I run into problems?

I've heard that marinating chicken too long will cause problems because the acidic marinade will "cook" or in some way alter the texture of the meat unfavorably.
I can't seem to find a reliable source to say if this is true or not. Some people say marinading a whole chicken overnight (and a little into the next day) is just fine.
