Grilled Bourbon Chicken

This is another "cheater" recipe!  I'm loving these more and more lately.  Back in January of last year, I posted a recipe for a Bourbon Chicken (stir fry).  We loved it!!  I was going to put it back in the rotation this past week when I realized, crap, if I do that, I won't have anything to blog about... so I though - why not change it up a bit?  And with the simple change of grilling... it's a brand new dish!

Grilled Bourbon Chicken
Adapted from
Printable Recipe 
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 Tablespoons ketchup
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I cut mine into strips-no reason, just felt like having strips)

In a bowl or measuring cup, mix together all ingredients except the chicken.  Reserve 1/4 cup of sauce for dipping if desired.  Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in a resealable bag.  Pour remaining mixture over, seal, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Preheat grill to 375 degrees F.  Clean and oil grill grates.  Remove chicken from bag and discard the marinade.  Place chicken directly over the fire and grill for 8-10 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through.  Serve with reserved sauce if desired.  Enjoy!

What? No bourbon? Isn't that false advertising? LOL It's okay, I don't have any bourbon anyways.

LOL... no, the original recipe was created on Bourbon Street - hence the name. So no bourbon was supposed to be in it... which is good cause I don't have bourbon either!!

I'm glad there's no bourbon in this dish, I'm out and don't love it anyway :) What I do love is whats in the marinade for this. Deeeeelish!

This sounds awesome and would be perfect over grilled chicken. Why is it a cheater recipe though? It sounds like you did it all from scratch.

Katie said...

Sometimes you just feel like havin' some chicken strips. lol

That sounds scrumptious, Jenn! Boneless chicken breasts need a little livening up, and these fill the bill. But, am I just blind this morning, or is the bourbon missing from the recipe?

I'm putting bourbon in it just for the principal of the matter ;)
