Like the Bourbon Chicken you get at the mall? Well, why go to the mall when you can make it at home. It's easy and much, much better!
Unlike some Bourbon Chicken recipes I've seen, this one really does have
Bourbon in it. It gives the sauce a wonderful deep intense flavor.
Saute your chicken in peanut oil until brown.
and add the sauce mixture.
Let it cook on a medium heat until it starts to turn into a glaze on the chicken and takes on a beautiful dark caramel color.
We usually serve our Asian dinners with Korean sticky rice but we have been trying to eat healthier and now eat a lot of brown rice. It really is good and has a wonderful nutty chewy texture to it.
Bourbon Chicken (*extra sauce version)
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 cup low sodium soy sauce
8 tablespoons rice vinegar
3/4 cup bourbon
3/4 cup brown sugar
4 teaspoons powdered ginger
8 garlic cloves
4 tablespoons peanut oil
Coarsely chop the scallions and mix all but the chicken and peanut oil together in a bowl and whisk until well blended. Set aside.
Dice chicken breasts into bite size pieces and saute in a very hot pan or wok with the peanut oil until lightly browned.
Add liquid mixture to the chicken and reduce heat to medium.
Cook uncovered until liquid is reduced to a glaze on the chicken and chicken is fully cooked.
Serve over rice.
* If you don't want the extra sauce just 1/2 the sauce ingredients.
