Cajun Bourbon Chicken Bites

"This is a copycat recipe for the cajun chicken bites served in the food court in some malls. My family loves it. The prep time does not include the marinade time."

    These were tastey but a bit salty. Instead of baking in a single layer and continually marinating, I put the chicken in a covered casserole dish (reserving the excess marinade) and baked at 350 for 1 hour. Then followed the directions as instructed.

    Very good! I used lite soy sauce so it wouldn't be as salty. I boiled the marinade and added a tsp of cornstarch to thicken it a bit for a sauce to go over the chicken and steamed rice. FANTASTIC!!!!

    These didn't taste just like the malls but I thought they were very good. One word of advice...use a nonstick pan for the baking portion, it did stick quite abit! I served this on steamed rice with sides of cajun fried cabbage and a bagette. Good eating!

    They were good, but the soy sauce taste overwhelmed the chicken bites a bit. I'll have to experiment with these a bit.

    I accidentally made this with Aloha BBQ sauce instead of soy sauce, so I'm not leaving stars because it's not accurate to the recipe, but it WAS wonderful! Really easy to make. I just marinated it for a couple nights in the fridge, then dumped the whole thing in an oven proof skillet for an hour in the oven. I also skipped the white wine because I didn't have an open bottle.

    Great recipe! I accidentally added 1/2 cup white wine instead of 2 tbsp, but I'm not taking off stars since I could tell from the taste and the smell that it would have been even better if I'd added the right amount of wine. Made for the Epicurean Queens ZWT5: French/Cajun/Creole.
