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!

Great recipe! A little too much red pepper for my taste, though. Family loved it!

I love this recipe! I like to make it extra spicy! So of course I add extra red pepper.

I made the recipe as is, but also added 1/2 cup Tennessee bourbon to it, made it taste even better. Great recipe, thanks.

This does not taste like bourbon chicken, it has a mild bbq sauce taste and doesn't taste good with rice, as you would expect it to

Delicious! Made this tonight with jasmine rice and my husband and I loved it. Not too saucy but didn't need tons of sauce. Will make again.

Awesome recipe! I brined my chicken breast for 15 minutes and then covered in flour before frying to maintain the moisture and it made the chicken super juicy!
