This was wonderful and too easy! A friend kept raving about her Bourbon Chicken so I looked and found it here. Used OJ instead of apple juice as that is what I had and it worked perfectly. Also added some cornstarch to the sauce as other reviewers and my friend suggested. Mixed the sauce ingredients in a bowl while the chicken cooked. My husband loved this over rice. Will be making again for sure.
I prepared this today and it was a hit. We have friends staying with us because their power went out after a recent storm, and a neighbor's child who is always over - 12 people in all! Needless to say, there were no leftovers and it has been requested that I prepare (a bigger batch) tomorrow. I did do a couple of things different than the recipe after reading reviews: 1) I used fresh zested ginger in place of the powder form; 2) I used a little more oil than the recipe calls for the brown the chicken; 3) I combined and whisked the ingredients for the sauce in a bowl prior to heating in the pan; 4) I added the red pepper to taste; 5) Instead of soy sauce, I used Braggs liquid aminos to cut down the amount of sodium a little. This is a keeper for my household!
After so many rave reviews, I was pretty confident that this would be a fantastic recipe...sorry to say I was a tad bit underwhelmed. The chicken (after cooking for 25 minutes) had a nice flavor but was pretty rubbery--blech. The sauce was too thin, although flavorful. Served it over steamed brown rice. I think it has potential, but not sure I'll make it again.
made this one a million times, I use what ever juice I have on hand, I even used hawaiian punch once lol and it comes out perfect every time! thanks for posting!
fantastic! My hubby is obsessed with bourban chicken and was all weirded out by ketchup and apple juice sauce... Tasted amazing we made it to a T and it was perfect! Definitely make over and over again!
OK. I'm going to give this 5 stars. Don't be afraid to let the sauce cook down, no need for cornstarch thickener. I am going to double the sauce the next time and add some oriental-style vegs(pre-cooked or stir fried) after the sauce has cooked-down. Also, I highly recommend using a low sodium soy sauce!
Wow this was amazing considering the short list of ingredients!Packs a flavorful punch.I coated my chicken pieces in cornstarch as others suggested,added more garlic(3 Cloves) and cut the sugar to a 1/4 and only added 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes (my little one would have complained otherwise)Once I had brought to a boil and started simmering I realized I didn't have enough sauce! so I just mixed up some more in a bowl and dumped it in the pan and 20 minutes later we had a great dinner with lots of sauce for our rice:)Save time double your sauce!Also I tasted the sauce when I first mixed it up and thought"oh no I don't like it!"trust me the flavours get wonderful after it cooks,glad I didn't chuck it!Husband loved and little one did too.Thanks Linmarie for posting this gem,not that you needed another 5 star review:D
Wonderful recipe added some onion cut up in wedges and broccoli.
Pretty yummy! For apple juice, I only had a 6oz juice box, so I ended up mixing the extra 2oz with a bit of cornstarch to thicken it up. Served it over rice and with steamed broccoli. I used 1/4tsp of pepper flakes, but will probably go up to 1/2tsp next time. Doubled the ginger. I used boneless chicken thighs. Will definitely make this again!
Ohmigosh, this was EXCELLENT!!! I did add a little cornstarch to it (about a tablespoon) to help thicken it up but otherwise made it as it says. It's absolutely fabulous. Yes, it does have quite a kick to it! Perfect.
