Don’t worry, you don’t really need to put on your disguise, arrange for a get-away driver and take a trip to the local liquor store to get your bourbon. This should probably be called Non-Bourbon Chicken, there’s no bourbon in it. But, hey…it’s not really my recipe.
This is a really easy and yummy dinner. I recently served it for a HUGE crowd and it was a hit! You can serve this chicken on rice, in a wrap, or on a salad too!
You just need:
2 lbs. B.S. chicken breasts
1 – 2 TBS olive oil
1 garlic clove, crushed (or 1 tsp. pre-minced garlic)
1/2 tsp. ginger
3/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 TBS. ketchup
1 TBS. cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup soy sauce
First, cut up your chicken in bite-size pieces. If you’re anything like me, go ahead and cut out the veins and arteries too. They’re gross. Swirl some Olive Oil to coat your pan and fry up the chicken. Remove the chicken when cooked.
* You can also cook your chicken in the crockpot, shred it…put it back in. On the stove, make the sauce and pour it in the crockpot over the chicken. Leave the crockpot on to keep everything warm.
Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and heat over medium heat until well mixed. Add the chicken and bring to a hard boil. Reduce heat and simmer about 20 minutes.

That looks yummy but Im going to add the bourbon:)
Looks like I’ve got something for dinner now! Yummy! Thanks!
That looks good! Nice work
Hello hello! Love your blog! I’ll have to keep checking back – looks like you put up a lot of cool info! 🙂 Oh and btw – checked out your fam blog too – your kids are adorable!! I’m glad you are doing so well. 🙂 ~Kerilynn
Looks yummy. I think I will have to go with Jessica on this one and add the Bourbon and watch the alcohol cook out. Thanks.
Thanks for sharing! Looks great. I love the step by step too…I am a visual/hands on person and I can’t do things well without seeing, so this helps tons (even though it seems quite easy). I just like visuals!!!!!!! You rock.
Looks really good! I’ll have to try that for dinner tonight!
Am I missing something here?….uh… where’s the bourbon come in?? and how much?
Despite the name, there is no bourbon in it. It’s not my recipe, but apparently whomever made it up thinks the combo of ingredients is similar to Bourbon Chicken with real bourbon, but since I’ve never had bourbon, I wouldn’t know for sure. But, I’m telling ya, bourbon or not, I love this recipe.
Where’s the bourbon?
Can you freeze all of the ingredients and cook everything in a crockpot later?
I’ve never done that, so it’s hard to say for sure. If you try it, let me know!
