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.

A savory combination of chicken, sweet potato, and spinach is seasoned with sage, sweetened with pear, given a splash of whiskey for a kick, and topped with toasted hazelnuts. It makes a lovely fall supper!
