Bourbon Glazed Chicken
Ah Costco frozen chicken breasts.
I know many of you, like me, buy them.
Sometimes it's hard to feel inspired by all those ice covered hunks of meat hanging around in your freezer. I'm always looking for something easy and fast. This is one.
This sauce has sweetness, a touch of smoky from the bourbon and some tang from the mustard. I think it would appeal to many people in your family. Since you boil the sauce (and the bourbon) for one minute, I would think that you might be able to even serve this to kids.
I served this with my farro, cherry and walnut salad, linked here.
NOTE- I only used onions because I didn't have any shallots hanging around.
NOTE NOTE- It sure is lucky I had enough bourbon to make this, LOL, you can see it's almost gone.
1/4 cup butter melted
1/4 cup shallots, or onions, minced small
2-4 minced garlic cloves
1/4 cup, plus 2 Tbsp bourbon
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup
4 chicken breasts, fresh or thawed frozen
Cook onions (or shallots) and garlic in the butter until they soften, add bourbon, mustard and maple syrup. Bring sauce stuff to a boil, for one minute. Let it cool.
Use half the sauce to marinade the chicken (adding a 1/2 tsp of salt to the marinade too), let sit in the fridge for a couple of hours, or even overnight. Grill over hot coals, or a smoker until they are done to your liking. Serve the rest of the sauce with the cooked BBQ chicken.
