Stove Top Bourbon Chicken

Print PrintShare with Friends


This solo recipe is very similar to the mall food court offerings. Cooking the chicken breast whole and then dicing will keep the meat moist, and the chef can check to be sure it is done before committing the rest of the ingredients. When adding the spices, just remember that Cooking is a Creative Sport.
