Bluegrass BBQ Chicken

Bluegrass BBQ Chicken Recipe - chicken marinated in a tangy vinegar based bbq sauce - Seriously one of the best grilled chicken recipes we've ever made! Make extra chicken for leftovers - you're going to want it!

This was one of the best grilled chicken recipes we've ever made. Seriously! It was SOOO good. We actually made this two days in a row. We just couldn't get enough of it. We grilled extra chicken the second night so we could eat it leftover for lunch. YUM!

The chicken marinated in the refrigerator for 8 hours. I whisked it up when I got up in the morning, but you could also mix it up before you go to bed and let it marinate it overnight. I believe the longer the better! We served the chicken with some green beans and my favorite skillet corn. Summer on a plate!

  1. As someone who currently lives in the Bluegrass state, this recipe caught my eye. But I'm curious what makes this chicken "bluegrass"? Where's the bourbon? :) It does sound delicious.

    1. The bluegrass in this recipe is the vinegar based marinade. I just posted some bourbon recipes for The Derby. :)

  2. Ah, that makes sense. I guess I just think bourbon when I think bluegrass and Kentucky. :) And I did see your derby recipes. I'm definitely going to try the bourbon pound cake.

  3. For the mustard is it 4oz or 8oz? Thanks for responding.

  4. There is a delicious style of BBQ here in south central Kentucky known as Monroe County Style. It is a tangy and spicy vinegar based sauce. I can't wait to try this to see if it compares. I think the horseradish mustard will be an interesting addition. The closest we've came to recreating the Monroe County Style "sauce" follows:

    QUICK AND EASY CHICKEN MARINADE

    1/2 c. oil
    1 c. white vinegar
    1 1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning (we prefer chicken seasoning)
    2 tbsp. salt
    1/4 tsp. pepper
    1 egg
    1 tbs. paprika
    1/8 tsp ground red pepper

    Mix together all ingredients in a plastic storage bag. Add chicken. Refrigerate several hours.

  5. We made this a couple of weeks ago and just loved it! I didn't have any ACV in the house, but had everything else, so I just used regular vinegar and it still turned out great! Making it again this week, so I will be sure and put ACV on my grocery shopping list! Thanks for another wonderful recipe!

  6. This chicken is incredible. It has such a wonderful flavor. If you're worried about the horseradish mustard being spicy, trust me, it is not at all when used in this recipe. The horseradish mustard gives a great bold, tangy flavor to the chicken. So, so, so good! My kids loved this chicken too! I served it with a Caesar salad and your Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms.
