Grilled Bourbon-Glazed Chicken Breast


  • 4 chicken breasts (large, bone-in split, mine totaled 4.8lbs)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups bourbon
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 tsps apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsps worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsps honey
  • 1 tsp ground mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Combine the bourbon, sugar, mustard, garlic, honey, vinegar and worcestershire in a small saucepan and whisk. Heat over high heat and allow it to come to a boil.
  3. Reduce to a simmer and simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until mixture reduces by about half.
  4. Set aside and sit at room temperature while you prepare the chicken. The glaze will thicken a bit at this time.
  5. In a bowl, combine salt, pepper, paprika, onion and garlic powder.
  6. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add olive oil.
  7. Season chicken breasts on both sides with mixture, then place skin-side down on grill.
  8. Grill for 2-3 minutes, or until chicken is golden brown, then flip and repeat on the other side. When finished, brush chicken with a bit more glaze.
  9. (If you don't have a grill follow these steps instead)
  10. Place skin-side down in the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes, or until chicken is golden brown, then flip and repeat on the other side.
  11. When finished, add chicken to an oven-safe baking dish.
  12. Pour half of the glaze overtop of chicken, add sage leaves on top if desired, then roast for 30 minutes. Half way through cooking, brush chicken with a bit more glaze.
  13. When chicken is finished, remove from oven and cool down for 5-10 minutes. Serve with additional glaze for topping.
