If you're going to use Matchlight and Minion method to smoke that chicken I'd suggest you just go ahead and throw it away now and save all the trouble of cooking it because it's going to be inedible. You don't need to use Minion method for chicken because it doesn't really benefit from low and slow cooking, so I'd suggest you light the charcoal and let it completely grey over before you start cooking, hopefully it will burn off all of the lighter fluid before you get it anywhere near the chicken.
