I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
BBQ Bourbon Chicken
...in your mind.
BBQ Bourbon Chicken

BBQ Bourbon Chicken


  • 2 pounds chicken, cut into one inch square bites, thighs preferably
  • 5 or 6 slices thick cut bacon, cut into one inch pieces
  • Neutral oil
  • 1.5 cups bbq sauce
  • 1/3 cup bourbon
  • 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1.5 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon each Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper


  1. Thread alternating pieces of chicken and bacon on to skewers
  2. Combine all sauce ingredients in a large bowl and mix well to combine and set aside
  3. Pre-heat grill to medium high - as in leave it for about 10 minutes
  4. Spray grill with non-stick spray, lightly brush both sides of skewers with oil and place on grill
  5. Let cook on first side 2-3 minutes, or until good marks start to appear, then flip
  6. Now you can start basting the top, cooked side
  7. Carry on like any grilling: saucing, turning, saucing, turning until gorgeous and done - but not too done, no need to go beyond 165 degrees
  8. Then just remove, serve and eat
