This stuff is amazing. My whole family loved it. Even Mr. Picky Pants asked for seconds. I served it with creamy chicken rice and homemade dinner rolls. Yummy. Tastes better then the mall version :) and I didn't pay the mall price for it either !
As I was looking at the recipe I was glad to see that Bourbon Chicken does not contain any bourbon. Not because I don't like the stuff, I do, but I was out. Out of bourbon. Why is it named Bourbon Chicken if there is no bourbon ???? These are the kinds of questions that keep me awake at night.
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 (I used 1/2 for Mr. Picky Pants)
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup (I used 4)
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 Heat oil in a large skillet.
2 Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned.
3 Remove chicken.
4 Add remaining ingredients, heating over medium Heat until well mixed and dissolved. (I let this cook for a few minutes to reduce and thicken up)
5 Add chicken and bring to a hard boil.
6 Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
7 Serve over hot rice and ENJOY
