This recipe for grilled chicken with crown royal glaze happened after a cookout. I used the few ingredients I had leftover. Instead of drinking the rest of the crown, I decided to make a glaze with it.

Grilled Chicken with Crown Royal Glaze Cooking Tips:

A lot of people struggle with cooking a juicy grilled chicken breast. The secret is you want to cook your chicken for a few minutes on one side, then place it on the cool side of the grill to bake like it was in an oven. For this recipe, we use a grill pan then pop it in the oven to finish cooking. Finishing the cooking in the oven helps the chicken breast cook evenly and remain juicy.

Can you make ahead?

Fridge: Grilled Chicken: You can make the chicken a day or two in advance. After chicken cools, store in an airtight container for 3 days max.

Crown Royal Glaze: Sauce can be made a day or two in advance. After sauce cools off, place in an airtight container in the fridge or at room temperature for 7 days max.

Reheating: Grilled Chicken: Pop in a 350-degree oven for 10 minutes.

Crown Royal Glaze: Turn on heat to medium, add all ingredients in a small or medium sauce pan, cook until mixture starts simmer. About 10 minutes or less.

This dish happens after you have a cookout and have a few ingredients left over. I grilled the chicken with my favorite seasoning and instead of drinking the rest of the crown royal I decided to make a sauce with it.
