Bourbon Chicken

I don't know about you but I happen to loooovvvvveeee Bourban Chicken, you know the one you get from the cajun resturant in the food court of the mall? I don't know, that might only be in Texas, but I do, I love that chicken. So when I came upon this recipe the other day I knew I had found a keeper. Only thing is that after cooking it it actually doesn't taste like Bourban Chicken, or not the one I have come to know and love. No, so it's not literally Bourban Chicken but it is yummy chicken.

Friday night my little brother, his girlfriend and thier baby, my neice, Hailey came by for dinner and dessert. It was so nice having them over and sitting in the backyard until 10 talking and sharing stories with Angelina. I am crossing my fingers that she will someday be my sister-in-law. It was also so nice having a baby in the house and watching her crawl and pull herself up on the table. I so love my neice, she is beatiful and so incredibly smart, sigh.

BCakes loved this dish and so did my brother, Dano. Angelina ate like a little bird but liked it to. I well, I would make it again but play around with the recipe to try and get that Bourban Chicken I was hoping it would be.

Oh and I almost forgot that I actually got this recipe from Rachel vs. "The Kitchen", a fellow blogger who doesn't even know that I follow her. I do though, I follow her and so should you.

Bourbon Chicken

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 and set aside.

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.

I served it along side mashed sweet potatoes and it was wonderful.

A little note about the above photo, there are so many like this on my camera. Every time I tried to take a photo Daniel would put his hand in the frame. I chose to use this one because this kind of behavior is one of the reasons I love his so much. He is the baby baby brother. The youngest boy out of the three brothers I have. XOXO.

Yum yum,
