Mojo Chicken Rotissarie Marinade Time

Hi. I was planning on making the Mojo marinated chicken this evening and have had my 5 pound organic (fattier skin cause it is organic, don't know if that makes a difference) and have had it marinating now for 5 hours.
Mr. Tkach got called into work this evening so I am thinking of letting it sit until tomorrow evening.
Now I know that citrus cooks the meat if marinated too long, but does this apply with a full chicken that has fatty skin? Do you think I can marinate it for what would be 30 or so hours with good results. Or should I just cook it tonight, just for me!?

The marinade has 1/2 cup fresh orange juice, 1/4 cup of each lemon & lime juice, 1/2 cup oil and oregeno, garlic and cumin.
