Bourbon Chicken


After a while I feel like it is only natural to get a little sick and tired of the same old mid-week meals.  You can spice up baked salmon, throw something different in the chicken casserole, but ever once in a while you need something totally different!  That is where I found myself a couple weeks ago so as I sat pondering what to have for dinner a friend suggested I try one of her family's favorites....Bourbon Chicken!  Assured that it was not at all difficult and ready in no time I made my grocery list and headed to the store.  This will now be a staple in my rotation as well....it was superb!!

Mary Morgan's Bourbon Chicken
2 lbs boneless chicken breasts , cut into bite-size pieces
1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove , crushed
1/4 teaspoon ginger
3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 cup apple juice
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 crowns broccoli

Heat oil in a large skillet.
Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned.
 
Remove chicken.
Add remaining ingredients, heating over medium.  Heat until well mixed and dissolved.
Add chicken and bring to a hard boil.  I added broccoli as well but you don't have to!
   
Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Serve over hot rice and ENJOY.
Pin It!
