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.


  1. Combine olive oil and next 7 ingredients.
  2. Add chicken, cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or as long as overnight. Remove chicken from marinade. Discard marinade.
  3. Place chicken on grill over medium heat. Grill uncovered for 15-20 minutes, turning once.
