The reviews that state that the alcohol taste is too strong, are probably using a house whiskey. A good name brand should be used to produce a better result. This could be why the ratings are on opposite ends of the scale. I have used Crown because the dish come out tasting great, and I take pride in my culinary creations. I have also used Jameson and gotten excellent results. If Old Crow brand is chosen, even if it is their best 7 day old, I cannot vouch for the results. ;-) Happy Day!

It had a really strong liquor taste. Maybe next time I'll make some changes.

I made this last weekend, it turned out great! I love all the ingrediants, which is what caught my eye, and the combination of them was perfect. I let the chicken sit in the marinade for about 5 hrs, in the fridge. I really wanted to grill the chicken and then cook down the rest of the marinade for a dipping sauce......but couldn't get the grill to turn on! Either way, the family loved it and the chicken was juicy. I will try again with the grill next time and update later. Thanks Wolf for an awesome recipe! :+)

i decided to bbq the chicken instead of cooking it in the oven. It came out full of flavor and delicous.

The cooking time definitely has to be adjusted accordingly to the chicken type/pieces you use. Easy to modify the amount of bourbon to your taste. I used Kentucky Straight Bourbon (handmade.) The kind of bourbon you use does play a role in the outcome of the taste.

Absolutely love this, better even than my favorite restaurant's version. Cut up the chicken into bite sized bits. I only had time to marinate for 1 hour, and then I kind of stir fried it on the stove top instead of oven baking. Just added a bit of corn starch at the end to thicken sauce a bit and omitted the wine. Wonderful recipe!!!
