Outstanding chicken. I used Sweet Baby Ray's bbq sauce in this. Followed recipe exactly and we adored it. The shallots become sweet and irresistible (don't rush the cooking time). Served with a big salad and fresh broccoli. Winner all the way.


  1. Place chicken breast halves between 2 sheets of saran wrap/plastic wrap; pound each breast half to 1/2-inch thickness using a mallet or rolling pin.
  2. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  4. Add chicken; cook 6 minutes on each side or until done.
  5. Remove chicken from pan and keep warm.
  6. Add shallots to skillet; stir/saute 1 minute.
  7. Add in bourbon; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits.
  8. Cook until bourbon mixture is reduced to 2 tablespoons (approximately 5 minutes).
  9. Add broth and barbecue sauce; cook until mixture is reduced to 1/2 cup (approximately 3 minutes).
  10. Serve sauce over chicken.
