I'm not sure why its called bourbon chicken but this recipe is alcohol free! I will usually add some kind of stir fry veggies to this. I also cut the red pepper flakes to 1/4 teaspoon for the wimps in my house (as you can tell, I'm not one of them!) This is a fast and easy dish. I usually double the sauce and then thicken it with cornstarch. But its yummy either way.
