About this Recipe

I think you will want to try this one for your next BBQ. Bacon basted chicken! Just a hint of smokiness from the whisky BBQ sauce.


1/2 cup (125 mL) Ready prepared BBQ sauce
2 tbsp (30 mL) Rye whiskey or bourbon
2 tsp (10 mL) Apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp (2 mL) Kosher salt
1/4 tsp (1 mL) Pepper
1 tbsp (15 mL) Paprika
2 tsp (10 mL) Smoked paprika
2 tbsp (15 mL) Brown sugar
3 slices Maple Leaf® Bacon, chopped


WHISK together BBQ sauce, whiskey and cider vinegar. Set aside.

ADD salt, pepper, paprika, brown sugar and raw bacon to the bowl of a food processor. Pulse to a paste and massage into the chicken pieces to completely coat. Thread chicken onto skewers and refrigerate until ready to grill.

PREHEAT BBQ to medium. Lightly coat the grill with non-stick cooking spray. Grill chicken for 6-7 minutes turning and basting with BBQ sauce. Chicken should be cooked to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) and look evenly char-grilled.


If using wooden skewers, soak for at least 30 minutes before using to prevent burning.
