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!

Loved it! My kids thought it was a little too spicy, so next time I'll cut back on the crushed red peppers. I also added mushrooms and yellow squash to make it our own. Was amazing!

Amazingly delicious!! It's a regular dish at my house. The sauce smells incredible while it's cooking. I add broccoli to the sauce about 10 mins before it's done, then serve it over white rice! Awesome!!!!

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!
