My boyfriend asked for Bourbon Chicken a year and a half ago for his birthday, and this is what I fixed. I've made it about a dozen times since then, following the recipe more closely sometimes than others. I think I finally got it perfect tonight!
I use a 2.5 lb bag of frozen chicken defrosted in the microwave and then diced, but this generates a lot of water, so I cut the cup of water out entirely.
I've used one packed cup of dark brown sugar before, and that tasted pretty good, but lately I've been sticking with the light brown sugar (which is what the recipe calls for). I only use a loose cup, though, maybe a third of the sugar in a packed cup.
I used straight diet cherry juice and cherry SoCo, too, and that added an amazing rich flavor.
This recipe is definitely a favorite in our house!
