Recipe courtesy of Barbecue America’s Rick Browne

Serves: 4

Preparation time: 10 minutes, 1 to 2 hours marinating

Cooking time: 20 to 30 minutes


1/4 cup apple cider or apple juice

1/2 teaspoon olive oil

1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup warm non-alcoholic beer

4 chicken breasts (6-8 ounces each)

Dry Rub

1 teaspoon brown sugar

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon dried savory (or thyme, marjoram or sage)

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

1 teaspoon dry yellow mustard

1 teaspoon salt

1 can (22 ounces) BUSH’S® Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans™


Mix marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Place chicken breasts in resealable plastic bag or container with tightly fitting lid and pour marinade over chicken. Seal tightly and let chicken marinate in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours. Once marinating is complete, mix dry rub ingredients in a small bowl until well incorporated. Drain the chicken and liberally apply the rub to both sides of the chicken.

Start grill and bring to medium heat (350-400 degrees). Place chicken breasts on the grill and cook for 20-30 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove chicken from grill and place each breast on a plate along with a side of Bourbon and Brown Sugar Grillin’ Beans.
