Excellent recipe. I doubled the juice and ginger and left everything else the same. I added some toasted sesame oil at the end and thickened all of that broth with a little cornstarch slurry. A small can of slice water chestnuts was a nice addition. I like the way the sauce got brown and looked delicious... and it WAS delicious. I'll keep the single serve bottles of apple juice in my freezer for when I need this quick meal to toss together. I think pepper and onions would be a nice addition... or really any kind of vegetable.
This was absolutely fantastic and easy to prepare. I mixed the sauce ahead of time and cooked the chicken about ? hour before she got home. She walked in the door and 15 minutes it was served. This is definitely a %u201Cdo over%u201D and made for a great lunch the next day. I doubled the sauce as many people pointed out and it was prefect. This is by far a great recipe!!! Thank you very much to the creator who posted the recipe. Mike
LOVE! used a little less sugar, but otherwise perfect, didn't need any thing.
I followed the recipe to the T. It didn't taste exactly like the Bourbon chicken in the mall, but DANG was it goooooood!!!! I will definitely be making this again soon!
Great chicken! I used one pound of chicken and doubled the sauce. Mixed the sauce ingredients in a separate bowl before frying the chicken. This gave the sugar time to dissolve. Once the chicken was cooked, I added the sauce and simmered for 20 minutes. I added a cornstarch slurry at the end to thicken the sauce. Served over jasmine rice. Thanks for sharing!
It was good but not outstanding. I don't see why it's the most popular recipe on this site. I think probably from reading all these reviews my expectations were too high.
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!
