Crockpot: Bourbon Chicken

Crockpot Bourbon Chicken with Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey and Zattarain's Bourbon Chicken Rice by Crockpot Empire

It’s been so cold here in Atlanta, and the ice storm made me want to create a supper that would warm us up from the inside out! I saw the Bulleit Bourbon on the bar, and decided to experiment with chicken, bourbon and our favorite rice! I love bourbon chicken on a toothpick in the mall, and when I learned that Fred had never ever tried it, I knew a crockpot version was in order!Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey the key ingredient to crockpot bourbon chicken recipe Close up of Crockpot Bourbon Chicken with Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey and Zattarain's Bourbon Chicken Rice by Crockpot EmpireIn all honesty, I’ve never cooked with bourbon before, but I love cooking with wine, so this was a fun experiment for me! There’s so many recipes that include bourbon, from savory to sweet recipes, because it infuses food with its bold flavor. It’s complex bringing a smoky, peppery and sweet vanilla flavor to a recipe and pairs well with anything from peaches to salmon. This bourbon chicken recipe has already got me thinking of all the different ways I can use our favorite Bulleit Bourbon to enhance the tang of a meat like pork and bring life to a dessert like brûlé {drooling}. Bulleit Bourbon Frontier Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey the key ingredient to crockpot bourbon chicken recipeFor all of you non-drinkers, no need to worry!

If you don’t have bourbon on hand or don’t want to buy any to create this recipe, just substitute chicken broth instead. I can’t guarantee it will be as good, but I have read that it’s a close second!

As if using bourbon in a recipe isn’t plus enough, this recipe is so simple to make! Just throw all of the ingredients into a bowl and whisk.
