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!

shawnellis , 1 months agoFantastic!! For a family of 4, plan on using AT LEAST 3lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breast and plan to triple the sauce mixture in order to have sauce over the rice! It's a hit with my family!!
Firebyrd , 1 months agoThanks much for calling it Awesome TWICE, TyandSydsma2! I'm glad your family loved the sauce as well! Such a pity you only gave it 3 stars! Since you marked it to make again I hope you rank it better!
TyandSydsma2 , 1 months agoAwsoeme Awesome, my family really loved the sauce
tomhardies , 1 months agoTastes great! Perhaps a touch too much soy sauce (although I did use a very dark strong one). Didn't use ginger or cider vinegar and still turned out great. Also used flour instead of corn starch! Added a couple of glugs of jack Daniels and that really finished it off nicely!
PatyandJoey , 1 months agoEasy to make, loved the flavor, not too sweet or too spicy. My husband loved it!
mkingstonus , 1 months agoTasty! Probably a little bit too sweet though. Next time I will reduce the brown sugar.

jennifercox2 , 1 months agoIt was good but i still prefer adding bourbon in my bourbon chicken. But all in all this is still a great recipe for those who might not have it on hand.
kbmac , 1 months agoreally great! added mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions.....yum!!!!!
karen829 , 1 months agoLOVE IT!!!!
jester5791 , 1 months agoIt was great. I agree with a lot of reviews that it definitely needs to be toned down in heat. I didnt have Apple juice so I added root beer and subtracted the sugar. I also didn't measure anything just eyeballed it. Love how flexible this recipe is.
MzKMckoy410 , 1 months agoVery good, my kids loved it!
B5DuWalker , 1 months agoEasy and great tasting. I used dark brown sugar b/c I was out of light brown. It turned out fine.
MOMWHATSFORDINNER , 1 months agoI just need to go easier on pepper flakes...delicious!
mogriff1 , 1 months agoGreat dish! Ive made this recipe numerous times and always vary my juices to get different flavors. This time I used pineapple juice instead of apple (gives a General Tso vibe). I always add more juice in place of the water and use 3 cloves of garlic instead of 1. Yummy dish! We love it!
b1nakita , 1 months agoA little spicy. Will use less pepper flakes next time, also definitely recommend adding flour to thicken along with some broccoli and carrots. Delicious!
budhew , 1 months agoVery delicious. The comment about using less soy sauce is true. I decided to use 1/4 cup of soy sauce and it turned out amazing.
kristaramartin , 1 months agoDelicious, I even forgot to get ginger so it did lack a little pizzazz but it was still really good, it had a bit of a spicy kick after like the fifth bite that took me aback lol but paired with a butter herb pasta it neutralized that well making again next weekend for family!
kimberlystephens , 1 months agoDelicious, had to tone down the spicy for my daughter, but it was so good!
FoodieSarah3 , 2 months agoWent over without a hitch! Very simple to make ( I added bourbon in lieu of apple juice) Family LOVED it! My hubby that is not a fan of plain rice loved the sauce mixed in. Was on the super spice side for me but those who like the fire will enjoy the pep. Thanks!
