  • Incredible!
    Oh... my... god. This was amazing. Very similar to the honey chicken my hubby loves. I simmered the liquid for 10 min, added the chicken raw (dark meat), and then boiled the heck out of it until the sauce turned thick and the chicken browned a bit. I also used low sodium soy. This is a keeper! - 8/24/13

    I love this recipe for bourbon chicken. I use 1/2 of the soy sauce called for, to reduce the sodium level. If you must, serve soy sauce on the side. - 5/27/12

  • Good
    It was delicious, but incredibly salty. I will make this again with low-sodium soy sauce to see if it makes a difference. Discounting the saltiness, the flavor was quite delicious. (I did cheat and substitute bourbon for the apple juice. It is bourbon chicken, after all!) - 5/12/12

    Lots of sodium, but it sounds pretty good other than that. - 5/23/08
