    A message board I am on was raving about "the bourbon chicken recipe." I couldn't find theirs, so went in search of my own. I particularly liked this one because it doesn't call for bourbon, which I don't have on hand. I did, however, have everything THIS recipe calls for on hand. WAHOO!

    I was out of brown rice, so I served this with jasmine rice, which worked out pretty well. This was pretty tasty, and while the sauce wasn't **just** like that of a Chinese food place, it was good enough for us.

    I only used 2 chicken breasts and guessed on the rest of the ingredients; maybe measuring properly would make this more like a restaurant's, but I was still happy with how this turned out.
