    I love this recipe and have made it a few times without looking too closely at the nutritional values posted. I realized that the protein was waaay too low for 6 oz. of chicken per serving. Of course when I corrected the amount of chicken in the recipe the calories went up too but I still love it - 11/8/13

    I didn't care much for this recipe. It doesn't taste like bourbon chicken to me, but more like teriyaki. It was ok, but I doubt I'll make it again. - 4/17/13

    I didn't think it tasted like the chicken you get in the mall food court (at all), but I did think it was good. I might have used 1/2 teaspoon of crush pepper instead of 3/4. - 2/20/13

    This was absolutely awesome! The entire family loved it and little did they know how much healthier it is than restaurant versions!! - The longer you cook it the thicker the sauce gets....no need to add calories with flour or starch. Definately a KEEPER. - 6/16/11

    The perfect sweet and spicy combo! I thought the heat was just right, my fiance thought it was a bit too spicy, so maybe 1/2 tsp of the crushed red pepper would calm it down some. I added a couple of teaspoons of cornstarch to thicken it, and didn't simmer the full 20 minutes. Delicious! - 3/31/11

    My husband and I really liked this. The sauce flavor was excellent, only next time I make it I'll use flour or cornstarch to give it a thicker consistency. - 1/24/11

    Great meal!! I was out of apple sauce and died up two fresh apples instead. I simmered the apples in the sauce and they were tender by the time I served them. The fresh apples were a great addition. I also skipped the oil and just used PAM in its place. - 6/24/10

  • This was really good! And easy to make. I had it over borwn rice with broccoli. I like things spicy so I would probably add more red pepper flakes next time. But it was still REALLY good. This dish is a keeper! - 8/12/12

  • Absolutely delicious! It was so popular that there was a little fight for the leftovers! :) 1st time we left out the red pepper flakes & it was wonderful. 2nd time we used 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes & it burned! Will leave out the peppers from now on! - 4/16/12

  • it does taste exactly like something you'd get from a strip mall - a little too sweet, but hits the spot if that's what you're craving! I added in cabbage and use green pepper instead of red - 7/6/11
