One of my favorite dishes to cook is a grilled bourbon chicken.
4-6 chicken breast halves
1/3 cup maple syrup
3 tablespoons bourbon
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon dried parsley
Combine, herbs, bourbon, maple syrup, and olive oil in large bowl.
Add chicken to bowl and coat well with mixture. Cover and marinate for 2-3 hours.
Preheat grill for medium heat.
Remove chicken from refrigerator making sure to reserve marinade.
Put marinade in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. (This is important!)
Place chicken on grill and allow to cook for 20 minutes. Flipping chicken breasts regularly.
Baste with marinade the last 5 to 10 minutes of cooking.
When juices run clear, remove from heat and serve.
As a reminder, although the alcohol evaporates, there still can be a trace amount. When using alchohol in cooking, make sure you don't have any problems with your guests and alcohol. In most dishes like this, you can substitute chicken broth.
