Easy Bourbon Chicken Recipe

“The Easy Bourbon Chicken Recipe is a flavor-packed delight that brings together tender, juicy chicken with a rich, sweet, and slightly tangy bourbon-infused sauce.”


  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil 
  • 1 tablespoon of canola oil 
  • 2 pounds of chicken breast cut into 1-inch cubes 
  • 4 cloves of garlic, chopped 
  • 1 teaspoon chopped ginger 
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce 
  • 1/4 cup light or dark brown sugar 
  • 2 tablespoons of bourbon 
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar 
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch 
  • 1 tablespoon of water 
  • sesame seeds for garnish if desired 
  • green onions for garnish if desired


  1. In a large skillet, heat a mixture of sesame oil and canola oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the chicken pieces and sauté them until they are fully cooked and have a nice browned appearance.
  3. Incorporate the minced garlic and ginger, stir-frying for an additional 1 to 2 minutes. If needed, add more oil to prevent sticking.
  4. In a medium-sized bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, bourbon, and rice wine vinegar.
  5. Pour the prepared chicken sauce into the skillet with the cooked chicken and allow it to simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water to create a slurry.
  7. Slowly introduce the cornstarch mixture into the sauce, stirring frequently. Continue to simmer until the sauce thickens, which typically takes 2-3 minutes.
  8. If you find that the sauce needs additional thickening, you can add more cornstarch, little by little.
  9. Serve the dish immediately, garnishing it with sesame seeds and chopped green onions if you like.
