Jack Daniels Whiskey Glazed Chicken

Claim jumpers Copycat Recipe

3/4 stick butter 
1/2 cup celery, diced 
1/2 cup onion, diced 
2 cups chicken stock 
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme 
1/2 teaspoon dried basil 
1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic 
1/4 teaspoon plus 1 pinch white pepper 
10 ounces sourdough croutons 
1 1/2 Granny Smith apples, diced 
1 teaspoon dried tarragon 
1 tablespoon freshly-chopped parsley
4 double chicken breasts, skin-on 
1 cup apple juice 
1/4 cup brandy 
1/4 cup Jack Daniels whiskey 
4 tablespoons granulated sugar 
1 pinch fresh tarragon leaves 
1 pinch ground nutmeg

Melt butter in a saucepan. Saute celery and onion until translucent.

In a separate pot, place 1 1/2 cups chicken stock, thyme, basil garlic and 1/4 teaspoon white pepper; simmer 15 minutes. Pour chicken stock mixture over the onions and celery; simmer 15 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, combine croutons, 1 whole diced apple, dried tarragon and parsley; add to stock mixture. Mix well. Spread mixture on a cookie sheet to cool.

Place chicken breasts skin side down on a cutting board; flatten and score thick spots. Place a 3-inch ball of stuffing on the chicken breasts; roll the ends over the ball to cover it completely. Place each rolled up chicken breast on a cooling rack placed over a baking sheet. Pour a little water in the baking sheet. Bake chicken in a preheated 350 degree F oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until the chicken's internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.

In a saucepan, combine 1/2 apple, 1/2 cup chicken stock, apple juice, brandy, whiskey, sugar, fresh tarragon, allspice, nutmeg and 1 pinch white pepper; simmer 20 minutes. If needed, thicken with a slurry of 1 Tbsp. cornstarch and a little water.

Serve chicken over a bed of stuffing. Drizzle sauce over chicken before serving. -

    Good Morning Deanna, This is a lovely recipe. I have never cooked chicken using a baking rack with water in the baking pan below. I should imagine that cooking the chicken this way keeps the chicken moist and tender. I am certainly going to be trying this recipe as my husband will love the addition of Jack Daniels.
    Have a lovely day.
    Best Wishes
