Sweet And Spicy Honey Bourbon Chicken Recipe

Sweet And Spicy Honey Bourbon Chicken Recipe


Chicken Slurry:
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast chicken
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
Honey Bourbon Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup cold water
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce (gluten free if necessary)
  • 2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
  • 1/3 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper

  1. Combine cornstarch and eggs in a medium bowl and whisk until smooth. Add chicken and stir to coat. Place in refrigerator while you make the sauce.
  2. Whisk cornstarch and 1/4 cup water in a small bowl and set aside. Saute garlic and ginger with sesame oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes until browned. Add remaining ingredients and continue stirring until the sauce is starting to thicken, about 5 minutes. Pour in water/cornstarch while stirring and stir until thick. Remove from heat and cover to keep warm.
  3. Heat 2 inches of oil in a dutch oven or wok to 350 degrees F (180 C). Remove chicken slurry from fridge and drop a few pieces at a time into hot oil. Fry on each side for about 2 minutes until golden and crispy. Remove to paper towels to drain. Continue until all chicken is cooked.
  4. Toss chicken in warm sauce and serve, if desired, with steamed rice and veggies.
