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!
debbiegodin ,Made this for my family and they loved it. We added a bit of extra red chili flakes.
alexismariebattaglio ,It was pretty good. Didn't taste exactly what I'm used to bourbon chicken tasting like and it was a little dry, but overall I would make it again. It did remind me of an Asian food dish. I may try it again using a combination of dark meat too. It didn't make very much sauce so I put a little soy sauce with the rice. I'll probably make fried rice with it next time. The changes I made were cutting the red pepper flakes to 1/8 tsp and used low sodium soy sauce.
maggie_winters_925 ,One of our families favorites! I use a little less red pepper flakes and serve it over basmati rice with pan fried peppers and onions. So good!
gramsy1 ,A little time consuming, but good. May be a little spicy for younger kids. Everyone in our house liked it, which is hard to come by most of the time.
barblibrarian ,Used boneless skinless thighs. Added hoisin like others suggested - definitely better! Added a bit of cayenne pepper. Cut back on the soy sauce and brown sugar just a bit.
lafawnberry ,This was VERY good as is. It also freezes well. I doubled it and am looking forward to the next time when I take it out of the freezer!
trixiemcg ,Really good flavour. However way too salty for my liking. I'll definitely make it again but would use low-sodium soy sauce and if that isn't cutting the salt enough I'll maybe reduce the soy sauce.
