We eat a lot of chicken in this house. And so I’m always on the lookout for new ways to prepare it and for different flavor combinations. I stumbled upon a recipe for Bourbon Pork Skewers and decided to adapt it just a bit to use with chicken. I decided not to mess with the skewers and just grilled the chicken tenders instead. Everyone in my family loved it!
Skinny Bourbon Grilled Chicken (or Pork)
- 12-16 chicken tenders (or 4-6 pork chops)
- 1/3 cup canola oil
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 3 tbsp bourbon (I only use Makers Mark!)
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp pepper
At least 30 minutes, or up to 4 hours before cooking, place all ingredients in ziplock bag. Refrigerate until ready to cook, turning occasionally. Heat grill (or heat a skillet over med-high heat), and cook chicken on both sides until cooked through.
