Eden's Nectar Bourbon Chicken

Recipe by  

"An aromatic and savory mango and peach grilled chicken dish bolstered with bourbon. This recipe is not a quick fix for dinner. I usually prepare my marinade around noon so that dinner is ready right around 6 pm. There are a lot of variables with grilling, ensure you have the proper amount of coals and it is the proper temp or you will mess this dish up."

  1. Place the peach, mango, garlic, rosemary, thyme, brown sugar, pepper, whiskey, olive oil, and white wine vinegar into a blender. Cover, and puree until smooth.
  2. Pour 2/3 of the marinade into a resealable plastic bag. Add the chicken, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 5 hours. Reserve the remaining marinade in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Place the plank on the grill and lightly brush the plank with olive oil.
  4. Remove the chicken from the marinade, and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade. When the plank has started smoking place the chicken on the plank. Cook the chicken breasts until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes per sided. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Brush the chicken with the reserved marinade.

There was a bit of preparation involved, but it was worth it! This recipe makes me think of Floribbean cuisine but not spicy. Thanks for the recipe Chef Eden!

This recipe was okay. I think it would be better with the fruit sitting on top in chunks, like a fruit salsa.

Awesome recipe for chicken! The sweet and tangy was a great taste, especially because the sugars from the sugar and whiskey carmalized. Didn't have chicken breasts, so used skinless thighs. Came out great!

Awesome recipe !! I made half of the sauce for marinating. For the other half, I cut the peaches and mangoes up, mixed them with the other ingredients, and warmed them up on the stove to pour over my chicken, when serving. I also added some red pepper slivers for some more color.I baked these in the oven. My Husband loved it !!!!!!

I only had honey beam on hand so the bourbon flavour wasn't really there. I won't use it the next time. I used this on chicken wings and baked them in the oven. With a better bourbon and longer marinating time it would be 5 stars.
