Why I Love This Recipe

I have never tried authetic bourbon chicken before so I do not know how this compares to the real thing, but I do know that this dish is wonderful.

Tips: If you prefer a thicker sauce make a slurry with cornstarch and water and add it to the sauce while cooking.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 lbs boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
1-2 tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/4 teaspoon ginger
3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup soy sauce


Heat oil in a large skillet.

Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned.

Remove Chicken.

Add remaining ingredients, heating over medium heat until well mixed and dissolved.

Add chicken and bring to a hard boil.

Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

Serve over hot rice and ENJOY.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

We followed the recipe exactly, and this is a great recipe! We felt that there was a little too much soy sauce for our tastes, it's very overpowering. I will definitely be making this again but will reduce the soy sauce measurement. I would also recommend adding some asian veggies or something to give it more substance. All in all it was delicious.
