 Jim's Maple Barbecue
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.
4 ServingsPrep: 5 min. + marinating Grill: 50 min.


  • 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)


  • 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.
  • 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.
Wine: Full-Bodied White Wine: Enjoy this recipe with a full-bodied white wine such as Chardonnay or Viognier.
