Bourbon Chicken

Annamaria Settanni McDonald


This chicken is great in flavor! I love it best served with some of my pot stickers and jasmine rice instead of regular white rice. You can serve this for dinner, a get together and potlucks! Note: Bourbon Chicken was named after Bourbon Street not after the alcohol like most would think.
