Top-ranked recipe named "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!
"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. :) "- TheRosieButterfly
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!

tfjordan70 1 week agoWas very good. Family thought i picked up at Chinese restaurant. I sauteed Carrots, Pepper and Onion before browning the chicken. I added veggies back to sauce and chicken in the last 5 mins of cooking.
Saraboysen 1 week agoTried to do this in the crockpot. It did not work. Too much moisture. Great flavor but I will try again as recipe directs.

tanimags 2 weeks agoTried this tonight! Really tasty! I cut the chicken quantity in half for 2. I added 2 carrots cut in coins, broccoli flowerets, and a poblano pepper to the sauce while it simmered. Served it with a brown rice blend. Will definitely make this again and pass on the recipe!

megancarsonkilbd4j6d1 2 weeks agoI did think the sauce was okay, but I followed the directions exactly and my sauce got really burnt. I think it's important to note that if you're using a gas range, the 20 minutes is going to really burn the sauce and make it almost inedible. My husband choked it down and kept telling me that he thought it was good... 'just maybe cook it a little less.' I'd either turn it way down or reduce the cooking time a BUNCH.
