THIS GIRL'S Basic Bar Bites: Chicken with Bourbon Peach Butter

Recipe: Grilled Chicken with Bourbon-Peach Butter
Source: Cooking Light Ultimate Chicken Cookbook
Tinkered With: No
Start-2-Finish Time: 6 hours
Deliciousness: 2/5 Stars

If you love sweet sauces, then this recipe is for you. For me it was missing even a hint of bourbon, and the butter was too much like peach jam. You must also bake the bourbon-peach butter for two hours, which means that this is a you-better-plan-ahead-meal, which is fine as long as the dish is incredible.

4 peaches, peeled and chopped
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tablespoons water
1/2 cup bourbon (don't use the good stuff on this one)
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
Salt and pepper to taste
2 large chicken breasts

In a saucepan, bring the peaches, lemon juice, and water to a boil. Reduce the heat and let it simmer for 30 minutes, then add the brown sugar and bourbon. Mix for a few minutes and pour into a food processor to puree. Pour the puree into a baking dish and bake at 250 for two hours.

Prepare the chicken with some salt and pepper, and grill until cooked through. Serve with the bourbon-peach butter on top or on the side for dipping.
