Recipe: Bourbon Chicken

Who doesn't love bourbon chicken?  It is so yummy and tasty.  This is a fast recipe that is great for busy weeknights.  I served it with white rice, but a heathier alternative would be brown rice.  I would also serve with some stir fried veggies the next time I make this....which will be soon. 


Bourbon Chicken

2 lbs boneless/skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1-2 tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed
1/4 teaspoon ginger
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 and cook until lightly browned. Remove chicken and 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 with rice.

  6. I hooked up your recipe for dinner. It was awesome!!! I did mess up and simmer it covered for 20, so I had to take out the chicken to keep it from becoming overcooked while I thickened the sauce, but it turned out perfectly anyway!!! Thank you so much. Added this to our family recipe book (the one we are making of recipes we like to pass down) and gave ya all the credit! :D Thank you so much!!! May God Bless you and Keep you!
