Why I Love This Recipe

Bourbon chicken was the dish I’d always have whenever we used to go to the mall for a quick lunch. I loved it because it’s so flavorful and the chicken is so juicy and tender.

Ingredients You'll Need

- 1/2 cup Bourbon
- 1/2 cup soy sauce low sodium
- 1/2 cup water
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp fresh ginger minced
- 2 tbsp red wine
- 1 tsp sesame oil

Bourbon Chicken
- 2 lb chicken thighs boneless and skinless, cut into smaller pieces
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp chives chopped


1. Whis all the marinade ingredients together in a medium bowl thoroughly. Add the chicken pieces to the bowl, toss them around, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to overnight.

2. In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium to high heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook until the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add half the marinade to the chicken and continue cooking until the marinade turns into a thicker sauce and the chicken is fully cooked. Should take another 5 to 10 minutes.

3. If you want some extra sauce, cook the remaining marinade in a small saucepan over medium heat, for about 5 to 10 minutes until it reduces about half and thickens a bit.

4. Serve the chicken over rice and garnish with chives.
