i first tried the sauce for this recipe when having a meal in tgi friday's restaurant in london's leicester square about a month ago & have been in love with it ever since. i've tried to think of many variations for it as it is adaptable to a lot of things, but the recipe below works very well indeed...see what you think!...
- 6 boneless chicken breasts
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 red chile, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2⁄3 cup water
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1⁄4 cup teriyaki sauce
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 1⁄3 cups soft brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 3 tablespoons white onions (i used shallots) or 3 tablespoons shallots, minced (i used shallots)
- 1 tablespoon Jack Daniels Whiskey
- 1 tablespoon crushed pineapple
- 1⁄4 tablespoon cayenne pepper
- salt (optional)
- black pepper (optional)
- firstly, take a large saucepan, add the olive oil & heat up. once the oil is hot, add the garlic & red chilli & fry off until soft.
- next, add to the pan, the water, pineapple juice, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce & soft brown sugar & stir thoroughly. bring to the boil over a medium to high heat & then reduce heat until the mixture is gently simmering away.
- add the remaining ingredients to the pan & again, stir thoroughly. bring back to the boil & then if need be, transfer the mixture to a blender & blend until smooth.
- when smooth, transfer mixture back to the pan, season to taste if desired & simmer for 35-45 minutes approx' or until the sauce has thickened & become almost syrupy & reduced by about half, making sure not to let the sauce burn or boil over.
- once the sauce has been prepared, fry off your chicken breasts in a frying pan with a little olive oil for approx' 10 minutes to speed up cooking time.
- once done, place in the oven for approx' 15 minutes. when the 15 minutes is up, remove from the oven, drain off any excess fat or oil & then pour over sauce, generously coating all the chicken.
- place back in the oven for a further 20 minutes or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked & voila! -- there you have it, jack daniels chicken casserole!
- plate up & pour remaining sauce into a serving jug. serve with cheesey mashed potatoes & freshly steamed vegetables, delectable! --
- serves about 3 people as a main meal.
- adjust cooking times in accordance with your oven!
- this sauce can also be used as a grill glaze for not just chicken, but pork chops, baby-back ribs, sausages or salmon fillets, etc.
- if you love or hate this recipe or if you can think of a better way to cook it, please let me know, much appreciated! -- .
It was super tasty, but also seemed to be a lot of work for something seemingly so simple. I would suggest throwing the pepper, garlic, pineapple and onion in the food processor before starting to help with the sauce smoothness later. Will definitely make again, with this change. Served with Teriyaki Rice, Teriyaki Rice.
This was very good. Although my sauce seemed to come out a bit thin. I think I may need to cook it longer next time. Had great flavor. Not too sweet, not too hot! I will make this again.
This sauce was great. The kids couldn't get enough of it.
