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!
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!

pearlypSoooo good!!! My wife made this and it's yummy!! We might have to try some of the revised suggestions in the reviews but soooo good just the way it is2w ago
tevans86I have made this several times and its pretty good. However based on the reviews I'm going to substitute hoisin sauce for the ketchup. I really think that will improve the flavor even more...1m ago
lisamjeffersa6v8o3v9t8p0Yummy!! I used bourbon instead of juice and water. I also added chili sauce, but this made it reallly spicy. It was still delicious, but I will go a little easier on the chili sauce next time.2m ago
