I still can’t get over how insanely delicious this Peach Bourbon BBQ Grilled Chicken was!
This grilled chicken may be up there with my all time favorites!
I’m allowed to pick favorites, right?!
I sure hope so because this one may win.
It’s a super easy dinner to prepare as well…if that’s a ranking factor when picking favorites 😉
Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are my chicken cut of choice.
They have extra flavor and don’t dry out like chicken breasts have a tendency to do.
Here’s how to make Peach Bourbon BBQ Grilled Chicken…
First put the chicken in a gallon size plastic bag (this is four pounds that I trimmed up a bit).
Along with olive oil, your favorite BBQ seasoning, and crushed red pepper flakes.
Then massage the bag until evenly combined and marinate in the fridge a few hours or overnight.
The BBQ sauce can be made ahead of time if you prefer.
Start by adding to a saucepan some BBQ sauce, peach jelly, peach bourbon, and more crushed red pepper flakes.
The pepper flakes add a much needed spice to such a sweet BBQ sauce.
Then bring to a boil, whisk often, and then let it simmer for a few minutes.
It smells like pure heaven, and I would highly recommend someone create a peach bourbon BBQ scented candle or something!
Once the chicken is done marinating place it on your grill set to medium high heat, with the grill grates nice and oiled.
Then sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper.
Grill the chicken about 5 to 6 minutes per side, and brush some of the BBQ sauce on it several times as you grill.
As I was already grilling the Peach Bourbon BBQ Grilled Chicken I thought why not also grill some asparagus.
Put olive oil, kosher salt, and pepper on the asparagus.
And they only take about 5 minutes on the grill, turning a few times.
Now you have a gorgeous, complete summer meal 🙂
Oh, and here’s what we did with the leftover chicken…
We made chicken salads with just lettuce, cut up chicken, and cheese and made a dressing by mixing together this BBQ sauce with ranch!
So good and easy!
