Grilled Chicken with Maple Whiskey Glaze


It’s Monday and I need something simple. I am thinking grilled chicken with a maple whiskey glaze. Mmmmmmm, that sounds good. I am going to pair this with a chickpea and roasted red pepper salad. I will put that recipe up tomorrow after I play with the ingredients while I am grilling the chicken. In the meantime, here is the glaze.

Grilled Chicken with Maple Whiskey Glaze


  • 4 thinly sliced chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 3 Tbsp Jack Daniels whiskey
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • ½ cup maple syrup


  1. Season chicken breast and place in a container to marinate.
  2. Add oil, whiskey, and maple syrup.
  3. Toss to coat evenly.
  4. Marinate at least several hours.
  5. Grill, brushing with remaining marinade.
  6. Watch closely as the high sugar content burns easily.
