Bourbon Chicken does not contain bourbon. The story is that it was invented by a Chinese chef on Bourbon Street. Misleading? Maybe. Delicious anyway? Certainly.

Adapted from an internet recipe.

-2 lbs boneless and skinless chicken thighs cut into bite sized pieces

-1-2 tbsp chili or olive oil

-1 crushed garlic clove

-1 tbsp ginger powder

-1 tbsp chili powder

-1/4 cup apple juice

-1/3 cup light brown sugar

-2 tbsp ketchup

-1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

-1/2 cup water

-1/3 cup low-sodium soy

-1 tbsp sriracha sauce

Cook chicken until lightly browned in the oil and drain off any excess liquids. Remove chicken and add in the rest of the ingredients. Heat and mix until everything is dissolved. Add chicken and bring to a hard boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 30 minutes. Sauce will still be liquidy but will thicken as it cools. Serve over white rice.

— Thanks.
