"This solo recipe is very similar to the mall food court offerings. Cooking the chicken breast whole and then dicing will keep the meat moist, and the chef can check to be sure it is done before committing the rest of the ingredients. When adding the spices, just remember that cooking is a creative sport."

"I JUST made this is it very good NOT quite like the mall next time I will use a little less ginger and a little less brown sugar and add a little more cornstarch the finishing sauce wasnt quite thick enough for my taste. other than that I will definitley make this again it is very very tasty. Thanks for the great recipe!!!"
"I really wanted to like this. I had high hopes, but it wasn't even close to what you'd find in a Food Court! If you like Bourbon though, and you're a heavy drinker, you'll probably like this (at best)."
"I thought this was very very good and quite close to the bourbon chicken you get at the mall. Thank you for sharing!"
"This one is a knockout - however for 3 people, I just doubled the sauce ingredients but only used 2 oz bourbon and 2 oz of chicken broth. I have friends who now request this when I invite them for dinner!"
"I made this recipe last night & it turned out pretty good. My DH & DD inhaled it & kept telling me to make it again. I thought it was a little to sweet, so next time I will cut down on the brown sugar. I did make it for 4 servings. I didn't have enough bourbon, I was short by 1/4 cup & didn't use all the giner, but other than that, followed the recipe. It was very easy & will make again & again. Thanks for the post."
"Not quite like the one in the mall but very tasty, easy and fast. Thanks for the recipe."
"i tried this recipe last night. I doubled the recipe so that my husband and i both could try this out. My husband that it was good but its not quite the same as the bourbon chicken i would find at the mall. Also the ginger was a little too much for me. Next time if i decide to make it i would only use 1/4 tsp ."
"Made this recipe with four servings. So, meaning I did all ingredients by 4!!! My whole house smelt like bourbon and the chicken was uneatable. I gave this 3 stars b/c if one only put 1/4 c or less for 4 servings...it could be awesome. Will try to make again but probably will only use a tablespoon or two of whiskey. "
"I really liked this recipe. I've tried many other bourbon chicken recipes. This was the best tasting one. The technique of cooking the chicken before adding the sauce prevented the chicken breast from drying out. In step 4, as the chicken and sauce simmered, I spooned the sauce over all of the pieces so they were evenly coated. Thanks, Bill for this recipe."
"This was amazing and delicious! tasted just like in the mall! I was really happy with the taste and my family wanted 2nd and 3rd servings! Delicious!"
"I doubled the recipe for my husband and I. This tastes alot different than the other recipe I tried on Zaar and my family liked this one better. I used a little bit less brown sugar than it called for because I didn't want it to be too sweet. We also used a bit less than 1/2 cup of burbon. Next time I will try 1/4 cup burbon and 1/4 cup chicken broth since we are military overseas and alchohol is rationed. Thanks!"
