  1. Combine the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic powder, ground ginger, dry minced onion, and bourbon whiskey in a 9x13 inch baking pan. Stir in chicken pieces. Cover and refrigerate, stirring often, for several hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Uncover chicken; place in the preheated oven. Baste chicken every 10 minutes. Cook until the juices run clear, about 1 hour.
  4. Remove cooked chicken from baking pan; scrape juices and browned bits from the baking dish into a skillet. Stir in the white wine. Cook and stir over medium heat until sauce is hot, and has reduced slightly. Stir in chicken; heat for 1 additional minute before serving.


  • Cook's Note
  • Chicken leg or thigh meat can be used instead of breast for a richer flavor.

Absolutely love this, better even than my favorite restaurant's version. Cut up the chicken into bite sized bits. I only had time to marinate for 1 hour, and then I kind of stir fried it on th...

It had a really strong liquor taste. Maybe next time I'll make some changes.

Only cooked chicken for 1/2 hour and it was still over done. Sauce was very strong.
