If you love BBQ chicken, this apricot bourbon barbecue sauce is going to be your new favorite BBQ sauce.
This weekend I am going to make my famous apricot bourbon barbecue sauce and grill up some chicken for our friends. This barbecue sauce is sweet with just a hint of bourbon and is a delicious dinner to serve before desserts or your favorite ice cream.
This sauce is full of sweet fruity apricot, with a hint of bourbon…it is perfect to slather on this chicken.
BBQ sauces can come in so many different flavors, from smokey to fruity. One of my favorite additions to my sauce recipe is bourbon because it adds a new layer of richness to the sauce flavor. And even better is enjoying a bit of bourbon on the rocks as you are grilling your meats :-).
Grill the chicken with the BBQ sauce, adding more layers of sauce every time you turn the chicken.
