WAY TO MUCH BOURBON. Previous recipe here had 1/2 C. Bourbon and 2 T wine for sauce. (I have a print of it). A reader had recomended using 1/4 C. Bourbon. I have made the recipe several times using the 1/2 C. but not marinating overnite, just a few hours, the recipe was very good.
Last week, with great fear and anxiety, I took this recipe to a Church Potluck using 1/4 C Bourbon and marrinated overnite. I doubled the recipe and used 5 # chicken tenders cut in chunks. I added enough cornstarch to make the sauce a glaze, (using wine). It was such a hit that I have got to get the recipe to 6 or 7 folks. (Good thing it is a small Church). Excellant, Excellant recipe. Just Hold The Bourbon....
