Marinated Chicken

Add all the ingredients except the McCormick's Chicken Seasoning together in a bag. Place Chicken in the bag with the marinade and squeeze out all the air and seal the bag. Marinate for 2 hours or overnight.


Preheat Grill for Medium High Heat. Spray GrillGrates with some oil, I use duck fat spray. Drain and discard marinade and then coat the chicken with the McCormick’s Chicken Seasoning generously on both side.


Grill the chicken on the preheated grill until no longer pink in the center, 4-5 Minutes per side.

Blueberry Bourbon Sauce

Mix the Arrowroot or Cornstarch with the water to make a slurry. Note: Arrowroot is the same as cornstarch, but it makes sauces shiny not dull looking. Most grocery stores sell arrowroot.)


Sauté Blueberries in sugar until the sugar melts and the blueberries start to soften a little.


Add butter and Balsamic Vinegar and cook for a minute or two or until the butter is incorporated.


Hit is with a splash of bourbon and heat it through for another minute.


Add the Arrowroot slurry mixture and thicken.


Serve with the marinated chicken and enjoy!
