The weather is finally BBQ-perfect, and that means we can finally start using our grills. I'm talking about juicy Beer Marinated Chicken with Gorgonzola Sauce. To make this dish extra flavorful, I mixed some lovely caramel Alaskan Amber, an alt-style ale with a bit of honey, Worcestershire sauce, and smoky chipotle pepper. I also used Litehouse® Simply Artisan Gorgonzola Crumbles to make the sauce. This cheese is aged for 100 days to ensure its award-winning signature flavor has enough time to develop. It is a real flavor bomb! The combination of sweet, smoky, and spicy goes excellent with the creamy and slightly tangy Gorgonzola sauce, and the crisp, cool Alaskan beer pairs perfectly with Litehouse® Simply Artisan Crumbles. Happy grilling!

Ingredients

  • 1 c. Alaskan Amber 
  • 1 tbsp. Honey
  • 1 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp. Chipotle Powder
  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced
  • 2 lb. Boneless, chicken tights
  • 1 Lemon, sliced
  • 2 tbsp. Canola Oil
  • A handful of fresh basil leaves

For Gorgonzola Sauce:

  • 3 oz. Litehouse® Gorgonzola Cheese Crumbles
  • 1/4 c. Whole Milk Yogurt
  • 1 tbsp. Minced Chives and Basil
  • 1 Clove Garlic, minced
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together beer, honey, Worcestershire, salt, chipotle, and garlic.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the beer mixture and chicken. Cover the bowl with a lid or a plastic wrap and marinate for at least 1 hour at room temperature or refrigerate overnight. Right before grilling, drain the chicken from the marinade and pat dry with a paper towel.
  3. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. Brush the chicken with oil and place on the grill with lemon slices. Cook, flipping once, about 5-6 minutes per side. Cook lemon slices for 2 minutes per side.
  4. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, make the Gorgonzola sauce by mixing all the ingredients together.
  5. Serve chicken immediately, topped with grilled lemon slices and basil leaves, and Gorgonzola sauce on the side.
