-In the meantime, prepare a tomato jam. Saute shallots and garlic in a hot pan with olive oil. After, add salt and crushed red pepper flakes.
-Now, carefully pour in bourbon whiskey and red wine vinegar. Let the sauce reduce by half.
-Next, add canned tomatoes and sugar. Let this reduce again and concentrate into a jam.
-Lastly, grill the chicken. Also, grill a slice of granny smith apple. You may pour a little oil over it so it does not stick to the grill.
Spread the tomato jam on potato buns. Place the chicken and apple slice on top. Finish with a little frisee salad.
