serves/makes: 4recipe id: 12885cook method: outdoor grill, stovetop
3 pounds chicken, cut up
1 1/2 pound boneless chicken breast
1 cup Jim Beam bourbon whiskey
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
salt and pepper, to taste
Combine Bourbon, sugar, ketchup, sauce, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Chicken can be marinated for a few hours in the sauce, but it is not mandatory.
If you BBQ the chicken, baste it with the sauce. When it is turned be sure and serve some for dipping.
If you pan-fry the chicken, brown the chicken then pour the sauce into the pan and simmer for 5 minutes till sauce thickens. Serve with rice or pasta.
Though this dish is said to be NOT Cajun, It has become associated with Cajun and I see it on several good Cajun sites.

This recipe was delicious! We may have added a touch too much Whiskey but some of us preferred it that way while others did not. We all agree that the flavor was outstanding and we uploaded a photo. Beautiful dish!

This recipe is tasty. I just combined all ingredients for the marinade into the marinade :). I'll be using less Jim Beam next time, though, as even after a lengthy simmer the liquor was still too strong in the sauce.

this recipe does not tell me what to do with the viniger or the dry mustard. I decided to add some orange zest to mine, and substituted 1/2 cup steak sauce for the ketchup. It was wonderful
