" A favorite named after Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Louisiana and for the bourbon whiskey ingredient; although this dish, sold as Cajun-style cuisine in malls all over America, is reported to be nothing of the kind (not genuine Creole or Cajun fare)! Note: If you double the recipe, make sure that the chicken is still in a single layer. Laissez les bons temps rouler! " Found at

Recipe was simple and quite delicious. The whole family loved it, well, except the four year old, but she doesn't like anything really. :: laugh ::: I didn't have a lot of time to marinate the chicken, so I cut it into cubes to marinade and pan fried it. If you want to use the leftover marinade as a sauce, either use less soy, or put something else in it to take the saltiness out. The chicken was WONDERFUL, but the marinade a bit salty when used as a sauce. I still give this five stars because the marinade wasn't meant to be a sauce in the first place :: smile ::::
This was a really good dish and easy to pepare. The sauce was wonderful - I used lite soy sauce because of the sodium in regular soy sauce. The chicken was a little dry - but I think 1 1/2 hours is too long to bake chicken. I used skinless chicken breasts, but not boneless. I think cooking it about 45 minutes would have been long enough. It's definitely a keeper though - and the sauce can be used on ribs or porkchops.
Tastes great, and pretty simple too. Be careful not to overcook it, though, if you end up cutting the chicken into small chunks. In that case 30-45 minutes should be fine. Keep checking!
