Whiskey Thighs

Whiskey Thighs created by BLUE ROSE

Yes, chicken thighs have more fat than chicken breasts, but the meat is so tasty. It usually costs less, too. If you wish, though, you can use this marinade on chicken breasts, or even pork chops.

ingredients

directions

  • In a glass bowl, combine all marinade ingredients.
  • Add chicken thighs to marinade, turning to make sure all meat comes into contact with marinade.
  • Cover tightly and refrigerate for several hours; overnight is fine; turn chicken pieces occasionally.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Place chicken in an oblong casserole dish; drizzle half the marinade over thighs (you can use more than half, if you want); discard the remaining marinade.
  • Bake thighs for one hour, basting frequently.
  • Thighs can also be grilled; use the marinade for basting BUT there is a danger, so you MUST bring the marinade to a boil and then let it boil for a full 5 minutes; it can then be used to baste the thighs on the grill.

    I marinated more than a dinner's worth because it sounded so good. First try, even with Gentleman Jack it was too boozy and a bit dry - so I added 1/2cup of Dale's and the next try was perfect, moist, tender and full flavored. Thanks for the recipe.

    This was a great recipe because it was very quick to prepare (I marinated it overnight) and full of flavour. I served it with mashed potatoes.
  3. Baby Chevelle
    These were good. Used chicken thighs. I did sub the ginger root with ginger though, as I didn't have any on hand.
  4. WhoKnew
    These were absolutely incredible. Used boneless chix breasts and made a mushroom gravy out of the marinade. First put the whole thing into the crockpot for 2.5 hours, then cooked-covered-on stovetop for 1/2 hour. Thickened marinade w/ flour & added a few handfuls of mushroom chunks. My husband now thinks I'm some sort of kitchen genius. Served with Bird's garlic mashed potatoes for a delicious meal. Thanks! :)
