Bourbon ChickenThis Bourbon Chicken recipe from Aggie’s Kitchen is so simple to prepare and so so so delicious! One of the things that we absolutely love is that it’s so easy to spice it up or take it down a few notches depending on who you will be sharing your meal with. Tender, moist, and full of flavor. There was a great bourbon chicken, hold your breath, at the Washington Square mall when I was in high school. I know, mall food. Can you even believe that I said that?! It’s completely ridiculous, and if I went back I’d probably be a bit disappointed now that my palate has evolved. Or, at least I hope that it has!

It was definitely chicken thighs not breasts that were used, but the breasts are a little healthier so I went with those this time. And the sauce isn’t exactly like the one from the mall and I did adapt it from Aggie as well, but it’s still a really delicious sauce that I think you’ll just love.

And I wont even tell you about Hot Dog on a Stick. Or should I say. the cheese on a stick. I know, I know, it’s ridiculous. That one I’m still tempted to make a homemade version though…

We served this with brown rice and steamed broccoli. I think next time I will use a little less crushed red pepper because I like it a little less spicy, but it was such a great flavor. We will be making this one again for sure!
