Ingredients

Are you making this? 
2 lbs chicken breasts; cut in bite-size pieces
1 tbsp olive oil; (up to 2 tbsp)
Sauce:
1 clove garlic; crushed
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tbsp ketchup
1/2 tbsp cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup soy sauce

Original recipe makes 8

Servings  

Preparation

1. Heat oil in large skillet.

2. Add chicken pieces; stir-fry until lightly browned.

3. Remove chicken.

4. Mix together remaining ingredients; stir into skillet and heat

over medium heat until well mixed and sugar is dissolved.

5. Return chicken to skillet and bring to a hard boil.

6. Reduce heat to slow simmer and cook approx. 20 min. or

until chicken is tender.

7. If necessary, thicken sauce with slurry of 3/4 T. cornstarch

and 3/4 T. water.

7. Serve over hot rice and ENJOY!!!!!

(Next time, I'm going to use boneless thighs and double the sauce recipe. If making for just you and AJ, you can reduce the amount of chicken and keep the sauce the same.)

I agree with brandyshiverdeckergrassmann, nothing like expected. Runny sauce. Not a one liked this,. Not making again.

this is a family favorite. A little more red pepper flakes for a spicier dish.

I made this last night, it was nothing like I expected. It was entirely too spicy, so I had to make something separate for my 4 yr old daughter. My husband wouldn't eat it. All in all a fail. I love bourbon chicken and so does everyone I know...This is not bourbon chicken!!! Its more like General Tso's chicken from a Chinese restaurant.
