This is so good! Try it you'll like it!!!

I made up this recipe several years ago for a back yard grilling picnic. It was a big hit!

In the time section:
I put 20 minutes in the prep time for assembling and cooking the sauce.
The cooking time, is for the chicken breasts.

The alcohol cooks off and just leaves the great flavor! Enjoy!

  2. Put your chicken breasts on the grill and cook until almost done on one side. (About 5 inches from the heat source). Turning with a tongs (poking with a fork will dry out your chicken).
