  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.

The reviews that state that the alcohol taste is too strong, are probably using a house whiskey. A good name brand should be used to produce a better result. This could be why the ratings are on opposite ends of the scale. I have used Crown because the dish come out tasting great, and I take pride in my culinary creations. I have also used Jameson and gotten excellent results. If Old Crow brand is chosen, even if it is their best 7 day old, I cannot vouch for the results. ;-) Happy Day!

I made this last weekend, it turned out great! I love all the ingrediants, which is what caught my eye, and the combination of them was perfect. I let the chicken sit in the marinade for about 5 hrs, in the fridge. I really wanted to grill the chicken and then cook down the rest of the marinade for a dipping sauce......but couldn't get the grill to turn on! Either way, the family loved it and the chicken was juicy. I will try again with the grill next time and update later. Thanks Wolf for an awesome recipe! :+)



i decided to bbq the chicken instead of cooking it in the oven. It came out full of flavor and delicous.
