Chicken Bourbon (without the bourbon)

I decided to make this Chicken Bourbon (found here) for dinner because I was not up for taking a lot of time for dinner and I had all the ingredients because they are definitely things most people have on hand.

This tastes like teriyaki chicken and it is the most FLAVORFUL recipe ever. Matthew and I loved the taste. 

Bourbon Chicken

Time: 30-40 minutes

Yield: 5 servings

5 chicken breasts (update: I only used 2)

2 T oil

1 t minced garlic

1/4 C apple or pineapple juice

1/3 C brown sugar

2 T ketchup

1 T apple cider vinegar

1/2 C water

1/3 C soy sauce

pinch red pepper flakes

1 T cornstarch 
1. Cut your chicken into small 1-2 inch pieces with some kitchen scissors. 
2. Heat up a large skillet over medium high heat. Once it is hot, pour 2 T Olive Oil into it.
3. Add your chicken pieces to the pan and let them cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
4. The chicken will start to get a bit juicy and bubbly. 
Put the lid on the pan, slightly tilted and drain the juices out into the sink. Return the pan to the stove top and continue cooking over medium high heat. 
5. Into a medium sized mixing bowl combine 1 t garlic, 1/4 C apple or pineapple juice, 1/3 C brown sugar, 2 T ketchup, 1 T apple cider vinegar, 1/2 C water, 1/3 C soy sauce, a pinch of red pepper flakes and 1 T cornstarch. Whisk it all together until the cornstarch is dissolved and all ingredients are well combined. 
6. When your chicken has a nice brown sear on some of the pieces...
pour the sauce into the pan. Stir it around to cover all the chicken pieces. 
7. Reduce the heat to a low simmer and cover the pan with the lid at an angle to allow some of the steam to escape. Let this baby simmer away for about 20 minutes, stirring a couple of times during the cooking period. 

8. Serve over rice

YUM! This is on my list of things to make. 5 chicken breasts seems like quite a bit - did you end up using that many?

I only used 2 breast, but made the same amount of sauce, which was delicious.

I buy a large amount of chicken (and meat) and then freeze them in seperate bags (usually two breast a bag) so that I can just pull a bag out each meal.
