The Best Bourbon Chicken

Sharing is caring!

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!

Ingredients:

2 pounds boneless chicken breasts ; cut into bite-size pieces

1 tablespoon olive oil ; (1-2)

1 garlic clove ; crushed

1/4 teaspoon ginger

3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 cup apple juice

1/3 cup light brown sugar

2 tablespoons ketchup

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1/2 cup water

1/3 cup soy sauce

1 tablespoon cornstarch ; (if thick sauce desired)

 

The Best Bourbon Chicken

 

Instructions:

Heat oil in a large skillet.

Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned.

Remove chicken.

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.

NOTES:

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!
