Bourbon Chicken

This is one of my go-to dinners, something that I know my entire family will eat happily and enjoy! I got the original recipe from, which as I've said before is my favorite site for finding new recipes!! When I make this, I usually like to use boneless skinless chicken thighs because they stay nice and moist, but chicken breasts will also work. And I somtimes double the recipe for the sauce, since my family loves sauce, a lot. Served over cooked white rice with a nice steamed veggie on the side, you've got a great meal!! I hope your family enjoys this as well!

Bourbon Chicken

1 ½ lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into bite sized pieces
2 tablespoons oil
1 garlic clove, minced
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
¾ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (use less or leave out if you don't like a lot of spice)
¼ cup apple juice
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon vinegar
½ cup water
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon cornstarch

In a large skillet cook the chicken pieces in the oil until the chicken is cooked through. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients mixing well with a whisk. Once the chicken is cooked through, add the sauce mixture and bring to a boil, stirring frequently until the sauce thickens. Serve over hot cooked rice and enjoy!

Mmm, my husband will love this!

Just a question -- neither of us is a big fan of ginger. Can it be left out?
