Grilled Tennessee Whiskey Chicken Recipe

Using a good Tennessee Whiskey this is one that is asked for time and time again!
The flavors are perfect for chicken or pork. Always comes out juicy, tender and flavorful!

1/4 cup Tennessee Whiskey your favorite brand
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
2 tablespoons lemon juice or lime juice
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

6 pieces of Chicken of your choice. This works great with pork ribs too!

Place all ingredients in a small saucepan, except chicken. Boil for 5 minutes or until thickens. Cool.

Place your preferred chicken pieces in a large zip lock bag.

Pour half the sauce over the chicken to marinate chicken pieces for at least 3 hours or overnight.

Preheat grill or bake in a preheated oven on a grated cast iron pan.
Place chicken pieces on an oil sprayed hot grill. Cook on one side around 12 to 15 minutes and flip.
Keep cooking until evenly cooked and charred on both side.
Baste with extra sauce and serve some for dipping on the side.
