Grilled Chicken with Bourbon Glaze recipe from Dr. Gourmet
Preheat the oven to 325°F or light the grill.

Place the bourbon, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, olive oil, sage, mustard, molasses and salt in a blender or mini chopper and process until smooth.

When ready to cook, baste the chicken breasts with about 1/3 of the glaze.

Place the chicken breasts on a grill on top of a sheet of aluminum foil or in the oven in a pan.

Cook for about 8 minutes and turn. Coat with another 1/3 of the glaze.

Cook for another 8 minutes and turn.

Coat with the remaining glaze and cook until the chicken is done (internal temperature 160° F). If cooking in the oven set the oven to broil for the final cooking time.

Let rest for about 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
