When I was first asked to create a recipe for Bourbon Chicken, I didn't even know it existed.
Bourbon and chicken sounded like a great combo to me, so I signed up. A quick Google search informed me that Bourbon Chicken is a fast food dish that is usually fried, and—get this—contains no bourbon at all!
My version of Bourbon Chicken with Corn Relish
aims to buck this trend of bourbon-less “bourbon” chicken. It’s sautéed, not fried, savory, sweet, and smoky, and actually tastes like bourbon!
First, char up the corn nice before you make the relish.
Mix this together, then just pour on some hot vinegar and you’re good to go!
Sear up the chicken before adding the sauce ingredients.
After simmering, the sauce will thicken slightly and coat the chicken pieces.
Serve with some rice or like I did, with some flour tortillas.
