Bacon Maple Bourbon Chicken

You have some chicken, pork or even salmon and want to add a delicious, sweet, sticky, smoky glaze? Use this glaze recipe. Just imagine grilling chicken or pork chops for your friends and you add the bacon-maple-bourbon glaze right at the very end, they will be calling you Chef in no-time. Making the glaze ahead of time is also a great idea, just heat it up before you want to brush it on your meats. It will hold up well for a few days in the refrigerator in an air-tight container.
