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!

M_Munoz68 , 2 days 3 hours agoGreat flavour, tender! We have tried many different types of Chinese chicken style and so far this one works the best!
shawnbennettjacobs , 6 days 4 hours agoI have made this a few times. I like to used chicken thighs and to add a bit (to taste) of Jack Daniels whisky to the sauce. My husband and son love it.
MinnaB , 1 week agoOh yes yes yes. This was easy, quick and delicious! We will definitely be having this again.
wintred , 1 week agoI've made this for my family a few times now. I "guesstimate" on the portions. I find myself always adding more ketchup and brown sugar at the end to have a sweeter taste and more red peppers for the sweet and spicy feel. I serve this with white rice and broccoli. I love it!
BijouS , 1 week agoThird time making it, and it comes out delicious every time. This time I took the suggestion below of adding Jack Daniels (I was only willing to spare 1tbsp lol), and I deglazed the pan with red wine at the end of the chicken cooking time. Also used boneless skinless chicken thighs this time instead of breasts, and the flavor was richer, we loved it. And I always use dark brown sugar instead of light, again, richer flavor.
fessiambre , 2 weeks agoDouble the recipe for the sauce and add 3 tablespoons of Jack Daniels whiskey. when you're finished cooking almost the sauce adding green peppers yellow peppers and red peppers to add a nice balance to the meal
Chelsea925 , 2 weeks agoMade this last night. Really really liked it. It is on the sweeter side if you are a saltier person, which I am. I served it with pasta and the BF an i agreed that it would be MUCH better with rice (which was originally suggested)
