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!
jo-anndrake-larkin ,My family loved it! First time I found a recipe for bourbon chicken that tastes like bourbon chicken without having to use bourbon!🙌
memeyers1962 ,Sweet and tender. Excellent over rice. My husband isn’t a fan of chicken, and even he loved it!
leigh-annfriedrich ,This has become a quick family favorite. Really quick and easy weeknight meal. Great with steamed broccoli.
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.
