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!
"Adjusted this 4 serving to 6 servings and made it exactly as directed... was a bit too "soy" flavored for us and not enough sweet. next time, we will adjust to use less soy sauce and a little more apple juice. Next day leftovers were even tastier as the sauce had soaked into the chicken and gave it a "marinated" flavor as opposed to the stronger sauce of the day before. I look forward to further tweeking the recipe, making ahead of time, and freezing large portions for make ahead meals later on. was great served with lumpia rolls and steamed broccoli. :) "
Heat oil in a large skillet.
Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned.
Add remaining ingredients, heating over medium heat until well blended and dissolved.
Add chicken and bring to a hard boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes uncovered.
Serve over hot rice.
I also like to mix about 1 teaspoon of Sriracha sauce (found in the asian food section of the grocery store) in with the ketchup for additional heat. Do it if you like it spicey!

spalesotti 1d 13h agoMy 10 year old daughter made the sauce and the whole family loves it. We will be making it again. We cut the red pepper down by a lot because my kids don't like spicy food. We used 2/3 the stated amount of corn starch and got a good thickness but I will make extra sauce next time so it can soak into the rice.

Randee26 2w agoTry sriracha instead of red pepper flakes. The flakes make it hot without adding much to the flavor, but the sriracha makes it even more delicious.
hunnibun 2w agoI really enjoyed this and it had just the right amount of spice. Sadly it was too spicy for my little boy so unless I have family over I won't be able to make it again. Really tasty and filling though.
mdoria04 2w agoSimple and delicious! I grilled the chicken and cook the sauce till they are dark and sticky. Would cook again and would try it with chicken thigh
macgeeksummer 2w agoThis is exactly like an Asian dish. Similar to Chinese and Asian in flavor. Nothing special about it. I can't believe people are rating this fish 5 stars!
