Bourbon Sauce (with no alcohol)

by Laura

This recipe for bourbon sauce (with no alcohol) is an adaptation from a recipe on Blog Chef. I love his site. It’s especially good for oriental food recipes. If you want the original recipe for the Bourbon Chicken you can find it at the link I provided. I just adapted the recipe to make the sauce only.

now, I used the sauce and put it over popcorn chicken that I had in my freezer from Costco. I think this would be good to put over grilled chicken or leftover cooked chicken too. Also, I served this over white rice. I was wondering why the recipe is called Bourbon Chicken. According to Wikipedia, my too hunches were correct.

First, the recipe is usually made with bourbon whiskey, but no actual bourbon in this recipe. I think that’s where the apple juice comes in to play here. It also was a popular dish originating on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. However, I don’t think the original recipe was served in an oriental style. I have to tell you that the whole family loved this bourbon sauce. It had just the right amount of spice. I couldn’t of handled much more. It had a nice flavor and just the right amount of thickness. You could probably use it in a stir fry also.
