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. I even made this recipe once without the crused red pepper flakes and it was equally as divine. Enjoy!

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 chicken 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 or quinoa...delish!

Serves 4.

This is delicious!! Thanks for posting the recipe. I added a little cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it before adding the chicken back in and threw in some veggies just for kicks :) Yum!

Bourbon Street is the famous street in New Orleans.

And also to make GF you can just use the awesome San Jay silver label soy sauce! It is delicious!

This is our family favorite. It's the type of meal that the relatives come over for so I always have to make 3 or 4 batches so there is plenty for them to take home. We LOVE this recipe!
