Baked Chicken Thigh with Bourbon-Maple Drizzle
- 4 medium size chicken thighs
- Salt and pepper
- 2 c bourbon
- ½ c maple syrup
- Southwest seasoning (optional)
In a medium size bowl, rub salt and pepper on the chicken and let set. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place the chicken on a sprayed baking tray. Once the oven is ready, put the chicken in the oven and bake for about 13-18 minutes. While the chicken is baking, put the bourbon in a small pot over med-high heat and reduce by three quarters. Watch out, it will probably flame up on you. Add the syrup and simmer on low heat for a couple of minutes. When the chicken is ready, pour the reduction over the chicken and serve.
