How to make it:
First, roast your garlic. This can be done up to a day ahead of time and helps preserve its flavor.
To prepare the glaze, you will need dark brown sugar; pineapple juice; water; Jack Daniel’s whiskey; soy sauce; lemon juice; garlic and onion powder; as well as cayenne pepper to taste.
Once all ingredients are prepared, combine them in a saucepan over medium-high heat and whisk until reduced by approximately one third.
For a slightly hotter recipe, add some smoked paprika for some added flavor and to balance out the sweetness.
You can also add some hot sauce to the mixture for extra flavor. If you like your sauce a bit less sweet, feel free to reduce the amount of sugar used.
Leftover whiskey-glazed chicken can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week, or longer in the freezer. To freeze, place in a large, freezer safe storage container or bag and label it with the date you plan on freezing it.
What’s more, this recipe can be used as a dipping sauce or to coat meats and sandwiches before grilling. It also makes delicious drizzling on nachos or tacos!
