Jim's Maple Barbecue Recipe

I created this out of my fondness of the maple syrup produced in our state. Your family will like the pleasant sweetness and change of pace from typical sauces.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 50 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves (8 ounces each)

Directions

  • 1. In a blender, combine syrup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and garlic; process for 30 seconds. Reserve 1/3 cup for basting; cover and refrigerate. Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag; pour remaining sauce over chicken. Seal bag and turn to coat; cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Grill, covered, over medium-low heat for 40 minutes or until juices run clear, turning and basting with reserved marinade during the last 10 minutes. Yield: 4 servings.
