Bourbon Grilled Chicken #Recipe @PegCochran


This recipe is derived from one on The original recipe calls for chicken breasts but I happened to have some legs and thighs I wanted to use up. I think it would be tasty either way--just alter the cooking time to suit whichever cut of meat you are using.  


Chicken thighs or legs
1/2 cup low sodium or gluten-free soy sauce
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
2 teaspoon grated ginger
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon canola oil or olive oil
1/4 cup bourbon
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
Pinch red pepper flakes
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
Sesame seeds (optional)



In a medium bowl, combine the soy sauce, apple sauce, onion, ginger, garlic, oil, bourbon, BBQ sauce, vinegar, brown sugar and red pepper flakes. 

Reserve and refrigerate 1/3 cup of the marinade. 

Place chicken pieces in a Ziploc bag and add marinade. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 30 minutes or as long as overnight.

Ready for the grill!

Preheat outdoor grill to medium high heat. 

Grill the chicken over indirect heat until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees, approximately 10 minutes per side. Move chicken over barbecue flame and cook approximately 5 more minutes per side until skin is crisp and marinade has caramelized. 


Place reserved 1/3 cup marinade in a small sauce pan. Add chicken broth and bring to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook until sauce has thickened slightly, 5 to 6 minutes. 

Top chicken with sauce and sesame seeds if desired.

The dead of winter takes on a whole new meaning in the new Cranberry Cove Mystery from USA Today bestselling author Peg Cochran!

On a night of heavy snow and bitter cold, newlyweds Monica and Greg are comfortably nestled before a warm fire when they’re roused by a late-night knock at the door. Surprised to find a troubled and confused woman on the doorstep, Monica is even more shocked when the woman vacantly utters that someone is trying to kill her. Sensing distress but not danger, Monica decides to help this mysterious woman, but her clouded recollections yield little—until she dredges up memories of her sister and a nearby home, where they find the woman’s sister, dead.

Unable to deny her own curiosity or the woman’s request for help, Monica begins digging into the suspicious death, only to discover a murky family history of valuable land, a bullying brother, an unscrupulous real estate developer, and endless rumors of good deeds met with bad blood. And when the trail of the killer begins to turn cold, Monica realizes that while the family wants to bury their sister, someone is out to bury the clues—and if Monica’s not careful, to bury her as well . . . 

Includes tasty recipes!

Penelope Parish has hit a streak of bad luck, including a severe case of writer's block that is threatening her sophomore book. Hoping a writer in residence position at The Open Book bookstore in Upper Chumley-on-Stoke, England, will shake the cobwebs loose, Pen, as she's affectionately known, packs her typewriter and heads across the pond.

Unfortunately, life in Chumley is far from quiet and when the chairwoman of the local Worthington Fest is found dead, fingers are pointed at Charlotte Davenport, an American romance novelist and the future Duchess of Worthington. Charlotte turns to the one person who might be her ally for help: fellow American Pen. Teaming up with bookstore owner Mabel Morris and her new friend Figgy, Pen sets out to learn the truth and find the tricks that will help her finish her novel.
