Bourbon_Street_Chicken_LifeInTheLofthouse   This Bourbon Street Chicken has quickly become a new family-fave ever since I first made it. This amazing chicken is named after Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Louisiana. I have never been there, or had the famous chicken there, but this copy-cat version is absolutely delicious!

   This recipe does not have any Bourbon alcohol in it. I’m sure it would be even better with the Bourbon. I would add a 1/4 cup if it was something I had on hand. This chicken is so flavorful and so easy to make either way. It’s a definite win for a simple weeknight meal! 🙂

Author:
Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup apple or pineapple juice
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
Instructions
  1. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add vegetable oil. Place chicken pieces to skillet and cook and stir for about 10 minutes, or until no longer pink.
  2. Drain any juices. Return skillet to stove top and continue cooking over medium high heat.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl combine garlic, apple or pineapple juice, brown sugar, ketchup, apple cider vinegar, water, soy sauce, a pinch of red pepper flakes and cornstarch. Whisk it all together until the cornstarch is dissolved and all ingredients are well combined.
  4. When chicken is golden brown pour sauce into the pan. Stir it around to cover all the chicken. Reduce heat to a low and cover pan with the lid at an angle to allow some of the steam to escape. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring a couple of times during the cooking period.
  5. Serve over white or brown rice. Enjoy!
