"Easy, flavorful recipe for chicken lovers"
Serving Size: 1 (224 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"The reason it is called"Bourbon Chicken " is because of a Restaurant on BOURBON STREET in Loisianna,that makes it. That recipe made it famous so famous that they could afford to share it! SOOO,it does not have to have Bourbon in it! But once you have the recipe like everything else, you can change it, if you want to change it, and make it your own!!"
"I have been looking for a bourbon chicken recipe that is close to a local cajun fast food restaurant near us and this comes the closest yet. Very good. I will fix it again, but cut the pepper amount in half---very hot! I also did not see how the author intended to finish cooking the chicken, but I assumed it was to be simmered in the sauce. I cooked it for 20 minutes and it seemed just right. I tripled the recipe to make enough sauce and also used 2 Tbs of corn starch."
"Yum! I used half the amount of chicken but left the amount of sauce the same. Next time I might use a touch less sugar. I don't know why it's called bourbon chicken when there isn't any bourbon in it, so I put some in."
"Very Nice, I doubled the sauce. I used bourbon, boneless skinless thighs, also added red/ yellow peppers and scallions.
Will be making this one again!"
"Absolutely fantastic. As almost everyone else states, definitely double the sauce (or halve the chicken, whatever) . And if you're confused on the lack of bourbon, the apple juice is the substitute in this recipe. Who needs apple juice?! Use bourbon! And don't be like me and try to double the sauce recipe in your head, or you may end up adding 4 times the amount of pepper called for...OOPS."
"Fantastic with the right amount of spice! No changes"
"Made this tonight for dinner and it turned out exactly like the kind you get in a restaurant. I didn't have apple juice, so I used Cran-Grape juice and it didn't change the flavor (although it did have a slight grape jelly scent.) I doubled the sauce and it made the perfect amount, served over Jasmine Rice. Next time, I'm going to throw in some fresh broccoli spears in the last few minutes of cooking.<br/><br/>For those who asked why there's no bourbon in the recipe, there's not supposed to be. You will not find any true Bourbon Chicken recipe with bourbon in it. The name comes from Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Good bourbon has a very strong flavor and would really change the way this dish tastes."
"My husband, oldest son, and I really enjoyed this chicken. It has such a good flavor. I served it over jasmine rice. We discovered it's good with peanuts or cashews mixed in. I will definitely make this again!"
"This turned out wonderfully. Tasted more like a gourmet sauce. I ended up using 2 tablespoons of cornstarch, but I also doubled the sauce recipe. I highly recommend doubling the sauce. I also threw in some peanuts about 4 or 5 minutes before it was done along with the chicken. Also, even though I'm a salt lover, I think I'll use low-sodium soy sauce as I found it a little too salty. The boyfriend loved it just the way it was though. Thank you!"
"Made for dinner tonight and it was fantastic! Had some basmati rice and peas with it which was yummy :). Thanks for sharing."
"Absolutely delicious!!! Doubled the sauce recipe. My super picky boy ate every bite of it and asked me to make it again!"
"Wonderful!! definately would make this again. I had to use about 2tbsp of cornstarch to thicken sauce up, but other than that it was pretty straight forward. I have never had bourbon chicken before, so this was a great introduction..and it tasted like I spent hours in the kitchen"
"for a dinner party this dish is fantastic easy to prep and simple to cook even for a beginner the end result will impress.I also used a fresh red chilli as well as flakes .This dish will also stand in a slow cooker to give you more time to drink wine with guests add cornflower just when about to serve enjoy Andy Dalton"
"I have never made Bourbon Chicken before, and I found this to be a very easy dish to prepare. And it tasted wonderful. I will make it often. Thanks for posting it, Deejer. Make for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game."
"LOVED IT! I made it tonight for dinner and thought it was absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe except instead of cornstarch & water, I used flour and water. Definitely will make this again!! Thanks!"
"I love this recipe! I altered it a little though. I marinated the chicken in the sauce for about and hour. I then sauted broccoli and green peppers before I sauted the chicken. I then poured the marinade in the pan as the directions said and added the cornstarch. At the end I sprinkled toasted sesame seeds over the whole dish and served. YUMMMMM!!!!!"
"Made this last night. Very good and easy to double.."
"We loved it! Will be making this often!"
"wheres the bourbon? recipe is good but i expected to use some bourbon in it,"
