Skinny Bourbon Grilled Chicken (Or Pork)

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.
