KITCHEN KREATIONS: Chinese Bourbon Chicken with Rice


Sunday Dinner:

Last Sunday, the hubby and I made Bourbon Chicken with white rice.
I am a big Food Network and YouTube food cooking channel fan, so when I came across this recipe via divascancook and on YouTube at Ateyaaa, I had to try it. Let me say that it turned out so good. The sauce was delicious (savory & sweet), the chicken was tender, and the smells coming from my kitchen were amazing!
Definitely check it out, you won't be disappointed!


[Disclaimer: If you follow the recipe exactly as they make it, it doesn't have Bourbon in it, but it is my understanding that you can substitute the water for actual Bourbon.]

Ingredients

3 large chicken breasts

2 Tablespoons olive oil

1 garlic clove, minced

1/4 teaspoon ginger

3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 cup of apple juice

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 Tablespoon ketchup

1 Tablespoon cider vinegar

1/4 -1/2 cup water

1/3 cup soy sauce

  1. Cut up 3 large chicken breast into cubes
  2. Heat 2 T. of olive oil in a large sauce pan.
  3. Add chicken into the pan and cook until almost done (white on the outside). Remove chicken from pan and set aside.

Let's make the yummy sauce!

  1. Now in a large saucepan add:

1 clove of minced garlic

¼ tsp. ginger

¾ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

¼ c. apple juice

1/3 c. brown sugar

2 Tbs. ketchup

1 Tbs. cider vinegar

1/3 c. soy sauce

¼ or ½ c. of water.

(If you want the sauce to be thin like in the Chinese restaurants use 1/2 c. If you want a glaze-like texture use 1/4 c.)

  1. Heat over medium heat until sugar has dissolved and everything has combined.
  2. Now add the chicken in and bring it to a hard boil.
  3. Reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.

Serve chicken & sauce over hot rice!
