Bourbon Chicken Marinade and Glaze

This 5 ingredient Bourbon Chicken Marinade can easily be thickened to double as a glaze for extra flavor while cooking dinner!




  1. In a bowl, combine oil, honey, bourbon, garlic and ginger and stir until well combined.
  2. Pour half into a large ziploc bag with chicken and let marinate at least 4 hours or overnight.
  3. Reserve other half of marinade in bowl until ready to cook.
  4. Bring remaining marinade (the half that hasn’t been in the bag) to a boil in a small saucepan.
  5. Add cornstarch mixture, reduce heat and let simmer until thickened.
  6. Cook chicken as desired (grill or bake) and brush glaze on a couple times while cooking.


Taste thickened glaze and add a little extra honey if you’d like it a bit sweeter.
