Bourbon Chicken
  • 2 Chicken breast halves
  • 4 oz Soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Powdered ginger
  • 2 tbs. Dried minced onion
  • 1/2 cup Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey
  • 2 tbs. White wine
  1. Mix all the marinade ingredients and pour over chicken pieces in a zip lock bag, removing as much air as possible before "zipping"!
  2. Let stand (turning often) for several hours (best overnight).
  3. Bake chicken at 350ยบ for one hour in a single layer, covered tightly with aluminum foil.
  4. Remove chicken pieces to a platter and keep warm.
  5. Scrape pan juices with all the brown bits into a small sauce pan, heat and thicken with corn starch, and add 2 Tbs. white wine.
  6. Serve over chicken.
  7. (another method is to place all ingredients in a frying pan on the stove and cook at a low temp until the meat is shreading. (About an hour- an hour and 1/2). I found no difference in this over having it marinade overnight.)
Serve with white rice.
