Bourbon Chicken
Recently, I visited a food court in a nearby shopping mall, with all of their different cuisines.  As I walked past four out of the ten restaurants in the food court, I was offered different versions of Bourbon Chicken. It seems people who go to Shopping Malls love "Bourbon Chicken". This sweet desert-like chicken was also available on two other menu boards, although those venues didn't offer me a sample. That made a total of six out of ten restaurants, in one small space, all serving the same entree

The market has spoken! If you are, or know, a devote of Bourbon Chicken, here is the recipe.

Bourbon Chicken

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 Tablespoons ketchup
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon Bourbon Whiskey
1/3 cup reduce sodium soy sauce(optional)
1 Tablespoon cornstarch/1 Tablespoon water 

Spray a large skillet with olive oil cooking spray (or use the 1 tbsp. olive oil). Add chicken and cook over medium heat until lightly browned. Remove chicken from skillet.
Add remaining ingredients, heating over medium heat until well mixed and dissolved.
Add chicken and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes - until chicken is cooked through.
If you prefer a thicker sauce add 1 tbsp. cornstarch dissolved in 1 tbsp. of warm date and add a little at at time to reach the desired consistency.
Serve over rice or Chinese noodles.
Southern U.S. and Chinese cuisines come together in this recipe, which combines good bourbon whiskey with soy sauce. 

Serves 4.
A recipe for chicken thighs, not cut up:
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken thigh meat
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup light soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons red rice vinegar or red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Jim Beam bourbon whiskey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, or to taste (up to 4 tablespoons if desired)
  • 1 green onion, washed and cut into thirds
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
Place the chicken thighs in a shallow 9 X 13-inch baking dish. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight (you can use a zip lock bag, also). Mix things up occasionally to make certain all parts of the chicken are being coated in the marinade.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the chicken, uncovered, with the marinade, for 45 minutes to 1 hour, basting occasionally, until the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced, or a meat thermometer reads 170 degrees Fahrenheit in the thickest part of the thigh. Serve hot.

You can also use boneless, skinless breast meat, garlic powder instead of fresh garlic and ditto for the ginger and the meat can be grilled or cut in pieces and stir fried, instead of baked. 
Until later,
