Reviews for Bourbon Chicken | BigOven

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!

Used a 3 lb. bag of boneless skinless chicken breasts, doubled the sauce (except for the red pepper flakes, kept those at 3/4 tsp.), and added one tablespoon of honey and a sprinkle of sriracha. Did add 2 tbsp. of cornstarch as well to thicken. Easy and delicious! The whole family was asking to put this in rotation before they even finished their plates. Will definitely make again.

I did not have apple juice, but used a chopped apple, mixed all ingredients of the seasoning in a blender and poured it to the pan. It turned up pretty successful. I will definitely make it again!

I used orange juice instead of apple and 1/4 tp. of pepper flakes. Just right for us.

Terrific!! The flavor is perfect and a big hit at our house. My husband loves heat so he adds the Sriracha sauce on his own plate. We love this dish! Thank you for sharing it!

This is great the way it is, but I add a can of fancy Chinese veggies.

I used boneless chicken thighs and dipped them in egg white and then dusted them with cornstarch. I fried the chicken thighs until golden brown. This made the dish have crunchy effect and the cornstarch from the chicken made the sauce thicker. Great recipe!

Very Good and easy. My husband and I are going to make a big batch of the sauce and freeze it so we have a super quick meal.

Loved it, quick and easy to make. I noticed some reviewers suggesting they would add some veggies next time and I think that would make it even better.
