Bourbon Chicken

I am not sure why they call this recipe Bourbon Chicken. There is no bourbon in it so don't shy away because you think there is alcohol in it. I have a hard time with a lot of crock pot recipes because they turn out just so so. This one turns out really good.
Bourbon Chicken

2 lb. boneless, skinless, chicken
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 c. apple juice
1/4 c. light brown sugar
2 Tbsp. ketchup
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1/2 c. water
1/3 c. soy sauce

Put chicken in bottom of large slow cooker. In a bowl, combine all other ingredients. Pour over chicken. Let it cook 6-8 hours on low. Remove chicken and shred or cut into chunks. Return to slow cooker and stir to combine. Serve over rice with more crushed red pepper flakes on top.


  1. Frank said this is really good over coconut rice, do you have that recipe? Thanks! :)

  2. The recipe for the coconut rice is posted with the sticky coconut chicken recipe. Actually all you do is replace most of your water with a can of coconut milk when making rice. I usually use about 1 1/4 c. coconut milk and 3/4 c. water to equal 2 cups of liquid and 1 c. of rice. Boil for 20 minutes. It works well when making the sticky coconut chicken since you will use the rest of the milk in the marinade.
