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!

It was a little sweet, but I added a bit more pepper and two shots of whiskey! It was really good!

Delicious and easy to make. I like to make a double batch of the sauce and add cooked broccoli and carrots to the dish.

I made this many times. I always add quartered brown mushrooms and sliced celery sautéed together.

It was easy and flavorful. Every bite was devoured. I found it a little sweeter than I like. I used dark brown sugar and not light, so I think that may have been it. I will make again and pay more attention to the sugar.

This was REALLY good! My husband devoured it and praised my cooking abilities all night! Hahaha! It's not like the Bourbon Chicken you get from a Chinese restaurant, it's a little milder in flavor, but I recommend it greatly! It's really easy to make too! I will DEFINITELY be making this again!

Cut the pepper flakes in half...holy hotness! Other than that, it's very good! If you like to have additional sauce on your rice, double up because there's very little extra. The whole family loved it though and we are a family of five picky eaters.

Quick, easy, and tasty. I did substitute the apple juice for KY Bourbon. Because I had that on hand, not the apple juice. Ha!

Let me get this straight, added the Asian substitute for salt and thought it would make it SWEET? Then you left out some major ingredients because your husband doesn't like them. 1st lesson: don't cook things that the main ingredients aren't liked by your family. 2nd, don't sub a condiment element for a juice element--EVER!

I made this tonight, it was just OK. I used low sodium soy sauce and water rather than apple juice next time i would like to make it a little sweeter. The taste was quite salty and not as sweet as I would have thought. My better half doesn't care for cooked apples or spicy food so I left out the apple juice and red peppers. I think I'll add bourbon and honey for the apple juice next time.

Super yummy. I might make a little less sauce next time, though.
