Better Than A Chinese Restaurant Bourbon Chicken

No one really knows why this is called bourbon chicken - there's no bourbon in the chicken. Almost everyone has stopped by Panda Express and had their fill of this delicious Chinese chicken.

This recipe is simple, just spicy enough, and quick enough, that you'll be happy you're cooking rather than ordering takeout (and so will your budget). Once you have the chicken breasts thawed, you're only 20 minutes from serving bourbon chicken, a future family favorite on the dining room table.
