Do you want to know what the best thing about this recipe is?
It gives you an excuse to go and buy yourself a bottle of bourbon.
Right there, that fact makes this is the best recipe for chicken I’ve come up with yet.
To add to it, you also have to go out and buy some bacon jam to go with it.
This recipe has three ingredients: Bourbon, Bacon Jam and chicken breast.
Winner winner bourbon bacon jam chicken dinner!
I really like the President’s Choice bacon jam found at Superstore, but you can use homemade or another version.
First, pour yourself some bourbon and mix it with a classic coke. Bourbon n’ coke. You’re ready to cook!
Taste the drink to make sure it’s good, then add more bourbon to taste.
Take about 1/3 cup of bacon jam and mix in 1-2 tbsp of bourbon. Add bourbon to taste.
Have another drink of your bourbon n’ coke as a reward for working so hard on dinner.
Set the sauce aside and grill up 2-4 chicken breasts on the BBQ, enjoying perhaps another bourbon and coke at the same time.
When the chicken is almost done, brush on the sauce. Grill for another 5-10 minutes.
When the chicken is cooked to a safe 165 degrees in the middle, top with some more bacon jam, warm for 3 minutes and then serve onto plates.
What is your favorite bourbon drink?
I’m rather fond of the classic Old Fashioned, but I’m thinking I want to venture further into bourbon territory.
So what is yours? What shall I concoct with my barely used bottle o’ Jim Beam?
I’m waiting to hear your answers, so leave them below!!
