Maple Whiskey Chicken Marinade

  • 1 cup whiskey
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4-5 tablespoons stone ground mustard (prepared mustard)
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 3-4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups baby bella mushrooms sliced, sauteed


Maple Whiskey Grilled Chicken

  • In a large zip-style bag combine the ingredients for the marinate.
  • Use a wooden rolling pin or meat tenderizer to flatten the chicken, only slightly to even the thickness out.
  • Place the chicken breasts into the marinate and place in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours. The longer it marinates, the more flavor it will have.
  • Grill the chicken on medium to high about 4-5 minutes each side, or until cooked all the way through. Let rest for 4-5 minutes before slicing to enjoy.

Sauteed Mushrooms

  • In a cast iron skillet, over medium heat cook the mushrooms in 1 tablespoon of canola oil and 1 tablespoon of butter. Use a wooden spoon to occasionally stir the mushrooms as they cook. Browning all sides.
  • Serve with sauteed mushrooms and your favorite seasonal vegetables.


This chicken also makes a great sandwich.
