From Susan Manlin Katzman, a free-lance food writer, St. Louis, MO. She got this recipe in 1987 from Tivoli restaurant which no longer exists. It was their signature dish and it won for best brunch dish in a contest. Two hour marination or more required.
I searched and finally found this recipe on the internet. It is a copycat of the Bourbon Chicken sold in Chinese carry-outs in my hometown. This recipe is so good that my sons gobble it up leaving me just a spoonful. Their excuse was they thought I had eaten. Editor's Note: Named Bourbon Chicken because it was supposedly created by a Chinese cook who worked in a restaurant on Bourbon Street.
David made these for Father's Day one year, and it has been a family favorite ever since! Nonfat yogurt, oven-baking, and hot sauce makes them a delicious and healthful treat. Don't be scared off by the quantity of hot sauce as the yogurt thoroughly tames the spice. Please note that removing the chicken fat and using nonfat yogurt makes this dish virtually fat-free.
(For maximum safety, David HIGHLY recommends his triple-washing method.) Prep time does not include chilling time.
I made this for my BF's birthday.. he loved it.. so did all my guests! I served this with angel hair pasta. It can be made ahead, then reheated on low heat. Or you can let the stew cook on low heat for 4 hours. (the cooking time is just an estimation, the longer you simmer it, the more tender the meat will be)
