Bourbon chicken - Cajun style

Bourbon chicken is a Cajun dish that is extremely tasty.

If you are looking for a great Southern meal you found it.

Below is a recipe for a classic bourbon chicken recipe.

  • 1/2 cup(s), Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 cup(s), Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s), Garlic Powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s), Ground Ginger
  • 2 tablespoon(s), Dried Minced Onion
  • 1/2 cup(s), Bourbon Whiskey
  • 1 pound(s), Chicken Leg and Thighs Cut in pieces
  • 2 tablespoon(s), White Wine

In a large bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, ginger, onion and bourbon; stir until sugar has dissolved.

Add chicken and stir to coat.

Cover and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

Place chicken and the marinade in an 8 x 8 inch glass-baking dish and bake in a preheated 350°F. oven for 45 minutes, basting every 10 minutes with pan juices.

Remove chicken.

Scrape pan juices with all the brown bits into a frying pan.

Heat over medium heat and add white wine.

Stir and add chicken.

Serve immediately with pan juices over cooked rice.

Baked Bourbon Chicken Recipes

This is a baked version of this classic southern dish.

You will be amazed at how tasty this Baked Chicken recipe is.

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup bourbon
  • 4 to 6 medium cloves of garlic, pressed
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 1/2 to 3 pounds chicken parts

The ingredient amounts can be changed depending on the amount of chicken to be marinated.

Spread chicken skin side up on a flat pan after marinating for a couple of hours.

The longer it marinates, the stronger the flavour.

Preheat oven to 350°. Bake chicken for about 45 minutes, until done.

You can use this marinade for grilled or broiled chicken as well.

Why not try a Whiskey with this chicken recipe?

This is one I like because it comes out slightly sweeter than all the other because of the use of some additional ingredients below.

  • 2 lbs boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1-2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
