Delicious!
I made an after-grilling glaze that went perfectly with it.
I doubled the bourbon and brown sugar, added some clover honey, then divided the mixture. I used just enough of the mixture to heavily coat the chicken breast tenders, and turned them every 10 minutes for about 45 minutes.
I sauteed some thick sliced, fresh portabello mushrooms in butter to about half well done, then added the rest of the mixture along with about about 1/3 cup of water plus some corn starch to thicken.
When the grilled chicken was done, I poured the bourbon-mushroom glaze over the top prior to serving.
This was so awesome!!!!
The reason I doubled the bourbon, sugar, and added honey was because the original mixture was too salty. The results were not an overpowering, but smooth and flavorful.

Very, Very good! I lightly scored the chicken (as RiffRaff taught me) and let them marinate all day, then grilled them up outside. They were great with rice and a peapod/mushroom stir-fry. I'll definitely make these again. Thanks for posting!

Not having planned ahead, I had only about 45 minutes to let this marinade. The chicken was still very good and moist. I was concerned that the bourbon flavor might be too strong, but it wasn't. Thanks for this yummy recipe.

A wonderful way to cook chicken!! I used bone-in breasts and marinated all day. The flavors were subtle yet very tasty! I am not a bourbon drinker and still found this dish 100% DELICIOUS! Thanks for sharing Luvs2cook.

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS!!!!! I used this recipe to marinade and prebake chicken. Then used Lvs2cook Grilled Bourbon Chicken #2 recipe to put the prebaked chicken on the grill. Both were absolutely amazing recipes. Thank you!!!!! Roxie, Mission Viejo, CA Rmsorchid@cox.net
