This is a really good dish. Any brand of whiskey can be used, I like Crown Royal(R).

  • Uncover chicken; place in the preheated oven. Baste chicken every 10 minutes. Cook until the juices run clear, about 1 hour.

  • Remove cooked chicken from baking pan; scrape juices and browned bits from the baking dish into a skillet. Stir in the white wine. Cook and stir over medium heat until sauce is hot, and has reduced slightly. Stir in chicken; heat for 1 additional minute before serving.

Cook's Note

Chicken leg or thigh meat can be used instead of breast for a richer flavor.

The reviews that state that the alcohol taste is too strong are probably using a house whiskey. A good name brand should be used to produce a better result. This could be why the ratings are on opposite ends of the scale. I have used Crown because the dish come out tasting great and I take pride in my culinary creations. I have also used Jameson and gotten excellent results. If Old Crow brand is chosen even if it is their best 7 day old I cannot vouch for the results.;-) Happy Day! Read More

I made this last weekend it turned out great! I love all the ingrediants which is what caught my eye and the combination of them was perfect. I let the chicken sit in the marinade for about 5 hrs in the fridge. I really wanted to grill the chicken and then cook down the rest of the marinade for a dipping sauce......but couldn't get the grill to turn on! Either way the family loved it and the chicken was juicy. I will try again with the grill next time and update later. Thanks Wolf for an awesome recipe!: ) Read More

The cooking time definitely has to be adjusted accordingly to the chicken type/pieces you use. Easy to modify the amount of bourbon to your taste. I used Kentucky Straight Bourbon (handmade.) The kind of bourbon you use does play a role in the outcome of the taste. Read More

Absolutely love this better even than my favorite restaurant's version. Cut up the chicken into bite sized bits. I only had time to marinate for 1 hour and then I kind of stir fried it on the stove top instead of oven baking. Just added a bit of corn starch at the end to thicken sauce a bit and omitted the wine. Wonderful recipe!!! Read More
