Cherry & Wild Leek BBQ Chicken Recipe
- Chicken breasts
- 1/4 cup farm fresh local wild leek vinegar
- 1/4 cup farm fresh local olive oil
- 1/4 cup sparkling water
- 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- Homemade cherry and wild leek BBQ sauce (recipe here)
- Farm fresh local pea shoots
Wash chicken breasts, pat dry and season with salt and pepper. In a large ziplock bag, mix one cup cherry and wild leek BBQ sauce with wild leek vinegar, olive oil, sparkling water, sea salt and pepper. Add chicken breasts to the bag, place the bag on a platter and refrigerator for one hour to marinate. Flip the bag over and marinate in the refrigerator for an additional 30 minutes.
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Remove marinated chicken breasts from the refrigerator and allow to rest at room temperature for 15 minutes. Gently place the chicken breasts on the grill and cook covered for 8 minutes. Gently flip the chicken breasts over, brush each breast with one tablespoon cherry and wild leek BBQ sauce and cook for an additional 8 minutes. Gently flip the chicken breasts over again, brush each breast with one tablespoon cherry and wild leek BBQ sauce and cook for an additional 3 minutes. Turn off the grill and remove the chicken breasts. Let chicken rest for 5 minutes before serving. Plate chicken with additional cherry and wild leek BBQ sauce and garnish with pea shoots.
