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!

This was a huge hit at my family reunion. The chicken was delicious. I added an addition 1/4 cup of brown sugar to mine, because I had family eating this that wasn't used to the bourbon flavor. In the future I would also recommend cutting the amount of Bourbon by about 1/8 a cup if you have family that aren't used to Bourbon. Cooking time is a bit long, I cooked mine for about 45 minutes, and I made a double recipe. This is going into my cookbook for sure!

I think I cooked it too long. Otherwise the sauce was great. The aroma while it was cooking was awesome. Otherwise due to not paying close enough attention the chicken was a little dry.

excellent! I made this at the request of my fiancee. I had not had this before. The KIDS said it tasted like beef jerky, they liked it very much. I was impressed and will make it again! only suggestion was a personal preference to add green onion and chives. wish I could save the sauce for something! very good!! ::applauds::

Do not have to cook for hour and half and definaley marinade over nite. A few hours doesn't cut it. You really have to like bourbon to enjoy this dish...and it is more of a liquid sauce, not really a marinade. Try maybe on a steak next time.
