This Bourbon Chicken recipe is fabulous! I always have to make twice as much as I think we will eat, and we still rarely have leftovers! I serve this over Jasmine rice with sauteed cabbage & bacon. MMMMM!

How To Make susie's bourbon chicken

  • 1
    Combine all ingredients except chicken and wine, stirring until sugar is dissolved.

    Cut up chicken thighs into large pieces (depending upon size, in quarters).
  • 3
    Pour marinade and chicken into gallon Ziploc bag. Refrigerate, turning occasionally for 1 to 2 days (2 days for best flavor).
  • 4
    Bake at 350* in stove-top safe (not glass) baking dish for 1 1/2 hours. Remove from oven.
  • 5
    Place baking dish on medium high burner and add white wine, simmering for 5 minutes longer.

    *** For a smoky flavor, after removing the chicken from the oven, I sometimes grill the chicken pieces over a high flame on my gas grill for a few minutes, then return it to the baking dish to add the wine.
