A. Hollis


  • 1 chicken, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup (225 ml) bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup (225 ml) ketchup
  • 2 tsp (10 ml) Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) white vinegar
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) fresh lemon juice
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp (2 ml) dry mustard
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Grill chicken until partially done.
  • While chicken is grilling mix the other ingredients.
  • Brush chicken with a thin coating of glaze.
  • Continue to baste when turning chicken.
  • Watch chicken carefully to ensure that the glaze does not burn.
  • (For stronger flavor, marinate the chicken in the whiskey mixture for a couple of hours - ed.)
I don't remember where I found it. (It may have been on CompuServe.) Bone-in chicken is better than boneless for this recipe.
