Mildly Sweet Whiskey Chicken

Recipe by  

"A quick whiskey chicken that has so many uses, whether by itself, over rice, or in pasta. A great dinner or lunch meal. Again it's best to BBQ the chicken, and you can remove the garlic cloves if desired; they are only there to leech flavor into the sauce."

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper.
  3. Cook the chicken thighs until no longer pink in the center and somewhat charred on the outside, about 7 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).
  4. Let chicken cool until able to handle easily, cut into strips, and put into a large glass bowl.
  5. Stir pineapple juice, bourbon whiskey, soy sauce, garlic cloves, brown sugar, and black pepper together in a saucepan over medium-low heat; stir until the sugar dissolves, bring to a simmer, and cook until thickened, 15 to 20 minutes.
  6. While the sauce simmers, melt the butter in a small skillet over medium-high heat. Saute mushrooms in hot butter until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir into the simmering sauce.
  7. Pour the mushrooms and sauce over the chicken strips and toss to coat.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Try apple juice instead of pineapple for a less-sweet version.
  • For a thicker sauce, whisk 1/4 cup water and 2 tablespoons cornstarch together and stir into the sauce while it simmers.

WOW! Made this exactly as receipe called for. We used Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey for the bourbon whiskey. We made rice and grilled veggies (a blend of green peppers, onions, carrots, & brussel sprouts)to go with the.chicken. We ended up making it layered with rice, then veggies, and topped with chicken and sauce. It was so delicious and surpassed my expectations. It was so light tasting for a summer day. I also think it would be an easy.dish to make.while out camping as well! Will DEFINITELY do this again and will recommend to.my friends!

Very good! I added the cornstarch as I like my sauces thick and I used chicken breast but otherwise followed the recipe. Next time I will grill whatever veggies I have on hand and try a little less soy sauce t suite my own taste.
