Chicken basted with an amazing homemade Fireball BBQ sauce. Ketchup, red pepper jelly, vinegar, onion, garlic, cayenne pepper and Fireball Whiskey. This is SO good! I made this for a party and everyone raved about it! A new favorite! Can make the Fireball BBQ sauce ahead of time and refrigerate for later. We ate this 2 weeks in a row!!
I am a big Fireball Whiskey fan. I was turned on to it on a trip to Vegas, and I’ve never looked back! I am always up to throw back a shot! 🙂 I came across a recipe for Fireball Whiskey Glazed Chicken in one of my magazines and knew I had to give it a try.
I made some changes to the recipe to simplify it and make it suit our tastes. OMG! YUM! You can make the Fireball Whiskey Glaze ahead of time and just reheat it a bit before cooking the chicken. We seasoned the chicken with a little bit of BBQ seasoning before we threw it on the grill and brushed the Fireball Whiskey Glaze on the chicken a few minutes before it was done cooking. This stuff was ridiculously good. I ate all of my chicken and was wishing I had made extra! Next time! Don’t skimp on applying the glaze – it is so good! I wasn’t sure that cinnamon whiskey would taste good in a BBQ style glaze, but believe me, it was! This is going into the dinner rotation!
