Southern Comfort Baked Chicken Breasts

This comes out real yummy and the chicken gets so tender. Make sure you use the chicken breast quarters ( without the wings) with the skin on. Southern Comfort is a mixture of Bourbon and orange/fruit liquer. I serve this over white rice.

Very delicious. I had chicken thighs defrosted and that's what I used instead of breasts. I had to add about 3/4 cup of chicken broth to the sauce when it was completed because the sauce seemed to thicken up too much. I also only had 100 proof Southern Comfort (WhooHooo!! hic ).. I couldn't taste the alcohol, really. Very flavorful dish. Thanks petlover!
