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. The second night we made this chicken we doubled the recipe so we had leftovers for lunch. YUM!

This chicken marinade is super easy to make. Whisk together Worcestershire sauce, water, cider vinegar, sugar, chili powder, melted butter, horseradish mustard, and salt. Feel free to omit the sugar if you are doing a low-carb/keto diet. It will still taste great!

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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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. 🙂
