Remember when teriyaki chicken sustained you through an entire semester of college, and early that 20’s life? The inexpensive, approachable “candy chicken” (as I like to call it) brought moments of comfort in between giant library books, research papers, and night shifts, amiright?
All the Asian flavors (sugar included), with a twist. So, if you’re in the mood to splurge nutrition-wise, and you’re up for candify-ing (is that even a word?) your chicken, why not take the next step and imbibe it too? We love the bourbon twang addition to this chicken! This simple, straightforward recipe can be a week-night go-to classic.
Here’s the 2.0 part of the Bourbon Chicken — If you want to health-ify, leave out the sugar/honey. Instead add 2 dates (pureed with a tiny bit of water) to the marinade. Additionally omit the butter, and use vegetable stock in place of the bourbon.
See, you CAN have it both ways and live life as a college student once more!
