Sweet Honey Glaze


  1. Preheat your grill for direct grilling at 400°F;
  2. Using kitchen shears or a sharp knife, remove the chicken’s backbone and make a cut through the breastbone from the inside so the chicken can lay flat like an open book;
  3. Brush the chicken with the melted butter and generously season with McCormick Grill Mates® Montreal Chicken Seasoning; Repeat on both side;
  4. In a measuring cup, combine the cognac and chicken stock to the remaining melted butter; Using a marinade injector, inject the bird in both breasts and thighs with the liquid;
  5. Make the glaze: Combine all Sweet Honey Glaze ingredients in a skillet or saucepan and bring to a boil for 10 minutes;
  6. Lay the chicken skin side down on your hot grill grate and place a cast iron skillet on top of the bird; Grill for 8 to 12 minutes then flip the bird and put the skillet back on top; Grill for another 8 to 12 minutes;
  7. One the chicken is fully cooked, brush the bird with sweet honey glaze and grill one more minute for the sauce to caramelise; Remove the chicken from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
