i have had a few requests for bourbon chicken! as much as i would love to test a recipe for it, i did not want to make a trip to the store for some bourbon. although, some days with currently 6 kids, traveling for bourbon REALLY sounds like a good idea. however, today was not one of those days. so i used what i had on hand. this recipe turned out very good. my husband 'bout passed out in the middle of the kitchen. he kept going back for seconds saying, 'i hope you are not planning to eat today.' i guess it would have been better if he would have really passed out, huh? 🙂
