One Dish Bourbon Chicken


This is a superb, easy dish. The slight sweetness of the bourbon mixes deliciously with the garlic and onion. Serve with rice, if desired. The sauce goes wonderfully with rice or pasta.

4 servings


  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts

  • 2 tablespoons chicken stock

  • 2 tablespoons bourbon

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large skillet, melt butter or margarine and add olive oil. Saute garlic and onion until translucent. Remove garlic and onion from skillet with a slotted spoon.
