skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
ground black pepper
I took the above two suggestions - browned the chicken without breading in a tiny bit of butter and doubled all the remaining ingredients for extra sauce (including cornstarch to thicken) - then I used chicken broth instead of water and added about 1/4 cup plain white vinegar for tang. Doubled the raisins and left them whole. Tossed in a coarsely chopped onion when I returned the chicken to simmer. One drop red and two drops yellow food coloring stirred in really brought out the color. Served it over lightly buttered white rice with the orange slice atop the chicken and a maraschino cherry half in the center of the orange slice. Presentation was GORGEOUS and the taste is unbelievable. You never taste the bourbon! But it really lends flavor. We ate the whole thing which should have been enough for two meals. This has got to be just about my favorite dish! And you never miss the fat. DE-LISH!!!!
Sorry, I found this recipe to be quite bland. Did add onion, mushroom, even garlic! The sauce had too much cornstarch, perhaps that was the problem. Maybe a simple reduction method would have been able to create a more disticntive taste.

Pretty good - lightly flavored chicken recipe. I hope I don't offend the photographer but PLEASE take that picture off, it looks like raw chicken and I almost passed this one up because of that.
Thanks for this recipe. I cooked it for my family this evening and they all loved (except my daughter who didn't like the texture of the chicken!). I loved it and will cook it again. I served the chicken with roasted baby potatoes (which had been tossed in olive oil, rock salt and a mixture of french herbs) and Savoy cabbage (which I shredded and cooked quickly in about 1/2 inch of water with a knob of butter) - Delicious.
Delicious, easy and quick to prepare. I substituted chicken broth for the water. Next time I'll double the sauce. Thanks.
My husband absolutely loved this recipe! I am going to try it without the flour next time though and just saute the chicken and then simmer it in the sauce.
Not very tasty. Definitely will not make again.
Recipe as printed is very bland. It can be improved by increasing the sugar. Substitute Chicken stock for water. Reduce cornstarch.
