Default Recipe: Sherry-Shallot Glaze for Chicken (pics)

Sherry-Shallot Glaze for Chicken

Who doesn't like barbecued chicken? I'm sure that there are a few freaks
out there, but most of us love it. Here's a fresh spin on the familiar
backyard favorite.

My girls frequently ask me what's my favorite thing to barbecue, and I
always answer, "Chicken!". After they ask me that familiar question (why
can't they remember?) I usually ponder why chicken is my favorite meat to
barbecue. The only honest answer is that I just don't know. The most
prominent reason that comes to mind is the years of my youth when I used
to hang out at the grill with my maternal grandfather as he grilled chicken
that I can taste in my mind to this day.

This is a recipe that I found scrawled on a piece of paper from probably 15
years ago. Back then I wrote very few recipes, so it was almost a quasi-
nostalgic thing when I found it. Of course I couldn't leave well enough alone.
I simply couldn't resist the urge to tweak it.

As I put this sauce together I thought that it's almost a French version of
a typical American barbecue sauce. It has many of the familiar base
ingredients, but it brings a new twist to the table. My girls gave it great
reviews, and I think you'll dig it.

Here's what I came up with using my inspirational blast from the past.

1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/3 cup Minced shallots
1/4 tsp Black pepper, ground fresh
1/2 tsp Garlic salt
3/4 cup Dry sherry
1/3 cup White wine vinegar
1 Tbsp Dijon mustard (I used Grey Poupon)
1 Tbsp Tomato paste
1/4 cup Honey
1 1/2 Tbsp Thyme leaves, rough chopped
2 Tbsp Butter, unsalted

Heat the olive oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat until it just
starts to shimmer.

Add the shallots, garlic salt and pepper to pan. Cook 3 minutes, stirring

Add the sherry and vinegar to the pan. Increase the heat to medium-high
and cook 5 minutes.

Whisk the mustard, tomato paste and honey into the pan. Reduce the heat
to medium and cook another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Remove the pan from the heat, stir in the butter and thyme, and let cool.

Drizzle or brush on your favorite grilled or barbecued chicken just prior to

Makes about 1 cup (enough for one whole chicken)
