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.
Great! Its a winner. Its yummy and easy 5 stars!
This is a wonderful marinade. Very flavorful and the chicken was so moist. My family loved this, even my mother visiting raved about the chicken. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
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
