3 pounds chicken, cut up OR 1 1/2 pound boneless chicken breast GLAZE 1 cup Jim Beam bourbon whiskey 1/2 cup dark brown sugar 1 cup ketchup 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 1/4 cup white vinegar 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 3 cloves garlic, minced 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard salt and pepper, to taste
Combine Bourbon, sugar, ketchup, sauce, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Chicken can be marinated for a few hours in the sauce, but it is not mandatory.
If you BBQ the chicken, baste it with the sauce. When it is turned be sure and serve some for dipping.
If you pan-fry the chicken, brown the chicken then pour the sauce into the pan and simmer for 5 minutes till sauce thickens. Serve with rice or pasta.
Though this dish is said to be NOT Cajun, It has become associated with Cajun and I see it on several good Cajun sites.
This recipe was delicious! We may have added a touch too much Whiskey but some of us preferred it that way while others did not. We all agree that the flavor was outstanding and we uploaded a photo. Beautiful dish!

This recipe is tasty. I just combined all ingredients for the marinade into the marinade :). I'll be using less Jim Beam next time, though, as even after a lengthy simmer the liquor was still too strong in the sauce.

I don't know what I did wrong. I tried this recipe but it didn't come out the way I hoped. It tasted fine, but feedback I got from others include "too ketchupy" and "just like barbeque chicken". Bottom line, it didn't taste anything like the bourbon chicken I love. I guess I'm going to have to keep searching for the right recipe...

this recipe does not tell me what to do with the viniger or the dry mustard. I decided to add some orange zest to mine, and substituted 1/2 cup steak sauce for the ketchup. It was wonderful

This recipe is WONDERFUL. I made minor alterations as follows: Cut chicken into bite size pieces. After marinating in GLAZE for several hours, remove chicken from GLAZE and brown in a skillet until done. Whisk about a 1/4 cup of flour into the GLAZE/marinade. Add marinade to the chicken and cook until bubbling and thickened. Serve over rice.
