Bourbon Street Chicken

Okay, so immediately after tasting this, I realized what everyone was raving about! The sauce has a great flavor, just the right amount of sweetness and spice. It is also such a simple recipe...which of course makes meals 10 times better! There is no BOURBON in this recipe...who knows why it is called bourbon?? Anyone? Anyway, it is delicious, my hubby said it is one of the best chicken dishes I have ever MADE! Points with the husband can never hurt. Definitely serve it over rice...of course, we used brown rice. MMM!

Adapeted From: Blog Chef

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts 
2 Tbs. oil (for frying) 
4 Tbs. cornstarch 

 1 garlic clove (minced) 
1/4 teaspoon ginger 
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes 
1/4 cup apple juice 
1/3 cup light brown sugar 
2 tablespoon ketchup 
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 
1/2 cup water 
1/3 cup soy sauce (or Bragg Liquid Aminos to be GF)

Cut chicken breasts into bit sized pieces, and lightly dust with cornstarch. Heat oil in your wok or frying pan and fry chicken until lightly browned. Drain on paper towels and set aside.
In a separate bowl combine all sauce ingredients. Pour into wok or frying pan and bring to a boil. 
Add chicken back to the pan, reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
Serve over rice...delish!

That looks great! I will be trying it for dinner soon for sure!

Oh and it is Bourbon Chicken because it is from Bourbon Street in New Orleans (If I remember correctly).

I used to make this all of the time and my family loves it too. I'm not sure why I haven't made it in a while. I think I'll put it on the menu for next week! It really is yummy.
