Tipsy Chicken

Tipsy Chicken created by Rita1652

This is my take on an old low country recipe for chicken. I make it with chicken breasts. The more traditional recipe calls for chicken thighs. All versions require bourbon. When they're in season, peaches can be substituted for the apricots. If you can find a jalepeno with heat, that can sub for the cayenne.
