Bourbon Street Chicken

I don't think this dish is actually Cajun/Creole. However, most folks associate with that cuisine.

Bourbon Street Chicken

Though this dish is said to be NOT Cajun, It has become associated with Cajun and I see it on several good Cajun sites.

1 Chicken, cut up
-or- 1 # boneless chicken breast
For the glaze:
1 c Jim Beam Bourbon whiskey
c Dark brown sugar
1 c Ketchup
2 t Worcestershire sauce
c White vinegar
1 T Fresh lemon juice
3 T garlic, minced
t Dry mustard
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine Bourbon, sugar, ketchup, sauce, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper. Chicken can be marinated for a few hours in the sauce, but it is not mandatory.
If you BBQ the chicken, baste it with the sauce. When it is turned be sure and reserve some for dipping.
If you are pan-fry the chicken , brown the chicken, then pour the sauce into the pan and simmer for 5 minutes till sauce thickens. Serve with rice or pasta.

Many years ago I worked near a little place that served this as the house special. Once in a blue moon I would treat myself and order a plateful brimming with mashed potatoes and dirty rice.....Thanks for jogging my memory of days gone by

Cajun or not, it's definately Southern...and I doubt if a Cajun would turn it down!

Don't want to be redundant... so in a word Ooh La La. Looks great, Allen. I don't care for hot and spicy, and always looking for new ideas/ways to prepare chicken. Thank you.

How did I miss this one? I am putting it into my files now. I think this one will go over well with the kiddos. Anyone try this yet? If so, how did you do the chicken? I am thinking I would either do it in the oven or on the BBQ.

Cajuns don't turn any kind of food down, Connie. For true! I always liked the way Justin Wilson would describe numbers of servings on his Cajun cooking show:

"Feeds about 2 Cajuns and 12 regular people."

LOL, I wonder if my DH is Cajun and doesn't know it too, GB! I tease him that he has two hollow legs!

This looks great. Copied, pasted & sent to myself. I wonder if this would be similiar to TGIFriday's Bourbon Chicken Bites. Actually, I think theirs is breaded but this sounds like it would work if I cubed the chicken, breaded, fried it & covered it with the sauce. Thank you!
