Bourbon Chicken

READY IN: 4hrs
Recipe by ChrisMc

A spicy, flavorful way to fix chicken - very little effort involved (you don't even need to cut anything!). The prep time includes marinating time (although feel free to marinate as long or as short as you desire).

My first thought from the aroma of the finished dish was that the cloves might dominate the other ingredients, but after the first bite, nearly all the flavors were present. The bourbon flavor was very subtle and oddly enough, except for it's function as a tenderizer ( and to justify the name of the recipe ), the bourbon could have been skipped and this would still be a very good meal. In order to balance the flavors, I would use a strong tasting whiskey like Jack Daniel. I followed the recipe as written, but next time I will grill the chicken and cook the liquid with a little flour to make a gravey.
