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!

Saraboysen , 4 days 23 hours agoDelectable, delicious, extraordinarily scrumptious! I will make this again and again! Tried previously in the crockpot but that was too soupy. Make as directed for amazing results.

tfjordan70 , 1 week agoWas very good. Family thought i picked up at Chinese restaurant. I sauteed Carrots, Pepper and Onion before browning the chicken. I added veggies back to sauce and chicken in the last 5 mins of cooking.
Saraboysen , 1 week agoTried to do this in the crockpot. It did not work. Too much moisture. Great flavor but I will try again as recipe directs.
courtahnay , 1 week agoMade it for my family! They loved it! Served with rice, and added a little bit of the sauce to the rice while cooking! Very good!!!
tanimags , 2 weeks agoTried this tonight! Really tasty! I cut the chicken quantity in half for 2. I added 2 carrots cut in coins, broccoli flowerets, and a poblano pepper to the sauce while it simmered. Served it with a brown rice blend. Will definitely make this again and pass on the recipe!
Stillnthagame , 2 weeks agoDelicious recipe. I cannot wait to make it for a party. Thank you !
megancarsonkilbd4j6d1 , 2 weeks agoI did think the sauce was okay, but I followed the directions exactly and my sauce got really burnt. I think it's important to note that if you're using a gas range, the 20 minutes is going to really burn the sauce and make it almost inedible. My husband choked it down and kept telling me that he thought it was good... "just maybe cook it a little less." I'd either turn it way down or reduce the cooking time a BUNCH.
oakisland416 , 2 weeks agoThis was so good! I think I will double the sauce when I make this again. Could have been a little sweeter but overall the flavor was really good! Not too spicy for our family and tasted pretty close to the Mall's sweet bourbon chicken! Was really quick and easy too! Once you buy the ingredients it should last a long time so you can make it again cheaply... just need your chicken for the next shopping trip!

dahlia1979 , 3 weeks agoAmazing!! I would cut back on the red pepper flakes if I was making this for my daughter. I added 1 extra tablespoon of light brown sugar; it was perfect!
CricketJenn , 3 weeks agoI added a tablespoon of bourbon to the sauce, because the title deems it necessary. It was fantastic, and I would definitely make it again. Note: If you don't like spicy foods, I wouldn't add as much of the red pepper flakes.
debyk , 4 weeks agoI love it. I like the bit of heat. Used Orange juice instead of apple juice because I didn't have it. Turned out very good.
nylesh , 4 weeks agoif u have little kids...add only 1tsp of pepper or less...otherwise, very good!
mrbaker1710 , 4 weeks agoAbsolutely delicious! Just like the food court at the mall. I actually used chicken thighs instead of breast and chicken wings. My family loved it will do again. Also only did 1/4 tsp of pepper an 1/4 cup of soy sauce. Mom has high blood pressure gotta watch the salt
britisme_m , 1 months agoWay too spicy and salty, but good flavor. Next time make with less soy sauce and no chili flakes.
