What you need:
- Chicken breasts
- BBQ sauce
- Worcestershire sauce

- Gluten-free BBQ sauce – always check the label before buying as many sauces contain Worcestershire sauce, which contains gluten, also certain flavors, and sweeteners.

Step 2: Take the chicken out of the marinade and throw it on the grill for 12 to 15 minutes.
Step 3: Before taking the meat off the grill, you can brush it with more barbecue sauce if you like.
Before taking the chicken off the grill, we coated it with some additional BBQ sauce. For a little more kick, add a shot of whiskey to the BBQ sauce if desired! And the extra BBQ sauce is completely optional, but we enjoyed it! It also gives some color to the chicken.
