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!

This has become a favorite in our home! I substitute the ginger with 2 tablespoons of raw honey and I also add in a shot or two of Jack Daniels...after all, it is bourbon chicken. I serve it with brown rice with a little couscous mixed in and we never have leftovers! I added in broccoli last night and it was amazing!!

It was very good my husband loved it!!! We added Frozen veggies which made it so much better! If giving to kids maybe use less Red pepper flakes. My kids don't like any spice so it was a bit spunky for them.

This was quite good. The heat was a bit intense so I expect I will dial back the pepper flakes a bit. While I happen to prefer the spice, it was a too much for some of my kids.

Great flavor and I added fresh broccoli florets and chopped celery.

Excellent, excellent version of this dish, the pepper flake gets hot so reduce if heat sensitive, but definitely don't exclude. Also I used 1.2 pounds of chicken instead of 2 pounds and found adequate. Without a doubt will make again. I will try without cornstarch next time to see if not as thick sauce is good! Amazing

BEST. CHICKEN. EVER. Don't keep looking, this is the best dinner you'll ever make. I don't like Ginger, left that out. And I forgot the garlic, but it was still AMAZING. My chicken was frozen and I was hungry so I boiled it in water instead of sauteeing in olive oil, and just cubed it with the ladle after it had boiled. Amazing, will probably make again tomorrow!
