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!

garyjoey 2w agoExcellent, 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

showmethespatula 3w agoBEST. 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!
