Recipe by Penelope P.
"This is a superb, easy dish. The slight sweetness of the bourbon mixes deliciously with the garlic and onion. Serve with rice, if desired. The sauce goes wonderfully with rice or pasta."

skinless, boneless chicken breasts

Great recipe, my whole family loved it.
I just added a bit of cornstarch to
thicken the sauce.
I don't want to say this but my family hated it. It tasted so strong. My kids refused to eat it and my husband asked me if I wanted to go out for supper. So that was good I guess I got a night out!!
Excellent recipe...very easy and suprisingly very tasty. I am not sure why others bashed it. We are trying it with shrimp tonight. The sauce is excellent for dipping with bread!
THIS WAS AGREAT RECIPE. THE FLAVOR WAS PERFECT. I DID ADD ONE TEASPOON BROWN SUGAR AND ONE FULL CUP OF CHICKEN BROTH AND THEN KEPT EVERYTHING ELSE THE SAME. tONIGHT WE ARE TRYING IT WITH BEEF.
This was horrible... the bourbon was not offset by the garlic and onion, the bourbon made the chicken too sweet. No one in my house ate it and none of us are picky eaters. I do NOT recommend
I was really disappointed in this dish. It just had no flavor at all. I doubled the bourbon and chicken broth and reduced after removing the chicken. Even the sauce itself didn't have much flavor. I will say this though, it was very tender chicken.
This recipe ROCKS! Everyone I've served this to loves it! Jim Bean bourbon gives an awesome flavor. The only changes I make are to double the chicken stock and bourbon (4 tablespoons each), and to add 3-4 tablespoons brown sugar. Thanks for sharin!
I made this, but admittedly tweaked it quite a bit. First, I seasoned my chicken with salt and pepper. I cut the butter and oil by about half and doubled the chicken stock and bourbon. The sauce was very thin so I thickened it with some more chicken stock mixed with corn starch, added 1 t. brown sugar and swirled in 1 T. butter. I also added sautéed mushrooms. I changed the cooking method by sautéing my chicken first and removing it from the pan. Then sautéed the onion and garlic and proceeded with the sauce. The simmering time given in the recipe is way too long. Once you’ve browned the chicken, it’s almost completely cooked, so be sure to cut back on the simmering time to maybe 5-10 minutes so your chicken won’t dry out. I think the changes I made improved this recipe, but it’s still not one I’ll make again.
