I love cooking, and when cooking meat such as chicken I always love to add a sauce. When I was recently approached by Jack Daniels Sauces to create my own recipe, I couldn’t wait, especially as they were going to send me a selection of their BBQ sauces which is easily my favourite flavour!
After a little thought I decided to cook chicken. I was looking for something that was simple yet spectacular at the same time. Not easy to achieve, but I think I just about managed it.
So first up I needed to buy some ingredients. I decided to buy six chicken thighs. To start with you’ll need to put them into an oven proof dish.
Now, I wanted to make sure that the chicken was full of flavour so I decided to marinate them in the fridge for a few hours before cooking.
To do this I used Jack Daniels BBQ glaze which is a sweet and smoky flavour. I poured the whole bottle over the chicken, and made sure it was well worked into the chicken to achieve the best possible flavour.
Next up , you’ll need to cook them in a pre-heated oven of around 180 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
With this fantastic summer that we are having with so much sunshine, BBQs are definitely the order of the day, and you could easily cook your chicken thighs with the bbq glaze on a BBQ.
While the chicken was cooking in the oven I decided to cook some plain white rice to accompany the chicken for a nice, simple meal.
Once the chicken is cooked remove it from the oven and allow it to stand for a while. I then decided to finish them off under the grill which makes the sauce lovely and sticky.
Then you need to plate up two chicken thighs along the white rice, and garnish it with parsley. Don’t forget to have a bowl of Jack Daniels barbecue sauce original smooth for dipping and to give your chicken even more flavour.
I spent approximately 40 minutes preparing and cooking a perfect family meal. The sauces tasted delicious with the chicken, and there were totally clean plates at the end of our meal which speaks volumes. The perfect teatime meal.
Jack Daniels sauces are available nationwide from Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Waitrose.
