A flavorful chicken dish named after Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Louisiana
This was a copycat recipe I found & modified of the Bourbon Chicken sold in most Chinese take-outs; which rarely use bourbon as a component. It's wonderfully sweet & spicy without being too hot. For kids that don't like hotstuffs, cut down on the pepper flakes!
"Adjusted this 4 serving to 6 servings and made it exactly as directed... was a bit too "soy" flavored for us and not enough sweet. next time, we will adjust to use less soy sauce and a little more apple juice. Next day leftovers were even tastier as the sauce had soaked into the chicken and gave it a "marinated" flavor as opposed to the stronger sauce of the day before. I look forward to further tweeking the recipe, making ahead of time, and freezing large portions for make ahead meals later on. was great served with lumpia rolls and steamed broccoli. :) "- TheRosieButterfly

Heat oil in a large skillet.
Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned.
Add remaining ingredients, heating over medium heat until well blended and dissolved.
Add chicken and bring to a hard boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes uncovered.
Serve over hot rice.
I also like to mix about 1 teaspoon of Sriracha sauce (found in the asian food section of the grocery store) in with the ketchup for additional heat. Do it if you like it spicey!

AESG 1 week agoI used orange juice instead of apple and 1/4 tp. of pepper flakes. Just right for us.
Bevhunt72 1 week agoTerrific!! The flavor is perfect and a big hit at our house. My husband loves heat so he adds the Sriracha sauce on his own plate. We love this dish! Thank you for sharing it!

nikki_bermundoallen 3 weeks agoI used boneless chicken thighs and dipped them in egg white and then dusted them with cornstarch. I fried the chicken thighs until golden brown. This made the dish have crunchy effect and the cornstarch from the chicken made the sauce thicker. Great recipe!
