Description

A quick-and-easy barbecue chicken, spiked with peach preserves and plenty of Jack.

Ingredients

  • 12 whole Chicken Thighs, Bone-in, Skin-on
  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 whole Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 1-½ cup Whiskey
  • 12 ounces, fluid Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 jar Peach Preserves
  • ½ cups Water
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 4 cloves Garlic, Peeled
  • 3 whole Green Onions, Sliced Thin

Preparation

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Heat oil and butter in a heavy pot over medium-high heat. Place chicken thighs, four at a time, in the pot, skin side down. Brown both sides, then remove to a plate and repeat until all chicken is browned.

Pour off half the grease, then return pan to stove. Add onions to pan and stir, cooking for 2 minutes. Pour whiskey into the pot, being very careful if you’re using an open flame. Stir and scrape the bottom of the pan, allowing whiskey to reduce for a minute or two. Pour in barbecue sauce, peach preserves, water, and Worcestershire sauce. Throw in garlic cloves. Stir until combined, then return chicken to the pot, skin side up. Cover and put pot in oven.

Cook for 1 1/2 hours, then remove from oven.

Serve pieces of chicken over a big pile of smashed potatoes. Sprinkle sliced green onions over the top.

I really loved this dish! It was very sweet, but not overwhelmingly so. The sauce was great on the mashed potatoes and sopped up with dinner rolls. Thanks, Ree!

This came out fine, but I was really looking forward to something special. It was more effort than my standard chicken recipes and when my sauce didn’t thicken up like Ree’s did I was really bummed out.

It was a hit in my house, little sweet- but great!

I didn’t love this but my husband liked it more than I did. I don’t think I will be making it again. I guess I just didn’t care for the sauce.
