Kentucky Bourbon Marinade

Recipe by  

"This straight Kentucky sour mash bourbon marinade is perfect for grilling beef, chicken and pork. It's great for boneless chicken breasts, steaks, chops, smoked ribs, brisket or pork roast. Adding a little smoke with hickory, mesquite or apple wood compliments the flavor nicely."

This is a pretty good marinade for chicken. I couldn't understand why you would use undiluted pinapple juice concentrate and then add a whole cup of water so I just left out the water and used regular pineapple juice from a can with pinapple chucks. I used low sodium soy sauce, 2 tsp. of minced garlic, 1 tsp. of ginger and 2 tsp. of Frank's red hot. I also added 2 Tbsp. of veg. oil. I cut up boneless chicken breasts into thick chunks for kabobs and let it marinate for over 24 hours. I grilled them with red and green peppers, onions, and cherry tomatoes. The chicken was moist and quite good, but the marinade needs something - brown sugar for a little more sweetness or red pepper flakes for a little more kick....

I just tried this recipe on a family grilled chuck recipe we have used for years - it is outstanding.

I love bourbon so I thought this might be a winner. Sadly, it was a missing something. I thought the pineapple concentrate might make it sweet enough, but it still lacked any sweetness and not much flavor overall after marinating half of a chicken for 24 hours. On to another marinade :)

It was an excellent marinade. Instead of pineapple juice, I used orange juice. It made the chicken with an orange flavor. I used Buffalo Trace Bourbon which enhanced the flavor. I am going to Bristol Speedway in August and will use this recipe on what ever I cook down there.
