The key to getting perfectly delicious grilled chicken is to pound your chicken breasts to an even thickness before marinating. We use a meat mallet and pound out the hump. You want the whole breast to be the same thickness. This keeps the chicken from drying out while grilling. You aren’t waiting on the thick end to cook while the skinny end is drying out. I promise that it makes all the difference!

Don’t have a grill? No problem! To cook the chicken inside, pan sear the chicken on both sides for 3 to 4 minutes. Place on a rimmed baking sheet. Cook at 400ºF for 10 minutes, until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165ºF.

We served this Grilled Bourbon Chicken with some sautéed mushrooms and rice. We had leftovers for lunch the next day and it was equally delicious. This chicken would also be great served on top of a salad or chopped up in a quesadilla. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this chicken:
