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 Blogchef.net
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!
