Bourbon Chicken

I think I've admitted my love affair with Orange Chicken many times on this blog. (If not then I just did). It's my favorite food and even thinking about it makes my mouth water. Last year I came across a recipe for Bourbon Chicken. It sounded enough like Orange Chicken to get me interested but it took me over 6 months to actually make it. I can't believe I waited that long. It was absolutely divine. If you love Chinese food as much as me I know this recipe will be right up your alley.

Bourbon Chicken
2 pounds boneless chicken
2 eggs
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 cup cornstarch

In a bowl mix egg and milk. In a seperate bowl combine flour and corn starch. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. Dip in egg mixture, then flour mixture and deep fry.

2 tsp garlic
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/2 cup apple juice
2/3 cup brown sugar
4 Tbsp. Ketchup
2 Tbsp. Vinegar
1 cup water
1/3 cup soy sauce

Combine all ingredients in saucepan. Let boil. Add 1 Tbsp of cornstarch to thicken. Stir and let simmer for 10 minutes.

Pour over chicken and serve immediately.
