Bourbon Chicken

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!

Made it with a delicious fried rice on the side. Was great!

My 10 year old daughter made the sauce and the whole family loves it. We will be making it again. We cut the red pepper down by a lot because my kids don't like spicy food. We used 2/3 the stated amount of corn starch and got a good thickness but I will make extra sauce next time so it can soak into the rice.

The family loved it.

It was just ok for me

Try sriracha instead of red pepper flakes. The flakes make it hot without adding much to the flavor, but the sriracha makes it even more delicious.

I really enjoyed this and it had just the right amount of spice. Sadly it was too spicy for my little boy so unless I have family over I won't be able to make it again. Really tasty and filling though.
Just eliminate the red pepper flakes and your little boy will be able to eat it just fine. I have 3- 5 year-olds and they love it but I always eliminate the red pepper flakes and serve it on the side for anybody that likes it spicier. - myronmandy 2w ago

Simple and delicious! I grilled the chicken and cook the sauce till they are dark and sticky. Would cook again and would try it with chicken thigh

This is exactly like an Asian dish. Similar to Chinese and Asian in flavor. Nothing special about it. I can't believe people are rating this fish 5 stars!

I was very pleased with this dish. I will definitely make again, next time adding green onions and using broccoli as s side.
