Bourbon Chicken

5 from 18 reviews

A scrumptious and uncomplicated recipe of golden brown chicken breast bites smothered in a sweet sticky slightly spicy bourbon sauce.   For a complete meal serve with rice, Chinese noodles or zucchini noodles.




  1. In a medium bowl combine cider vinegar, bourbon, brown sugar, ketchup, soy sauce, chicken broth and cornstarch; set aside.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium high heat. Brown the chicken pieces in a single layer; working in batches if needed. Turn the pieces over and brown the other side.  Once browned on both sides move to a large plate.
  3. Reduce heat to low and add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil.  Add minced garlic and grated ginger stirring constantly; cook for 1 minute. Whisk the bourbon/soy mixture one last time and pour it in the skillet. Bring the sauce to a low boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.  Stir the chicken into the sauce after 1-2 minutes of simmering.  Top with thin slices of green onion, add red pepper flakes to taste and serve over rice or spiralized zucchini noodles.
