How to make Easy Crock Pot Bourbon Chicken?
This Crock Pot Bourbon Chicken recipe is made with boneless chicken breasts, a store bought bottle of bourbon chicken sauce and few fresh herbs like fresh garlic and fresh ginger.
If the chicken is cut into bite size pieces it can be done cooking in about 2 hours.
If you need to cook this recipe longer than 2 hours leave the chicken breast or chicken thighs whole when putting them in the crock pot.
Boneless chicken cooks very fast when it is cut into small pieces. Leaving the chicken pieces whole will keep the chicken from drying out.
Where To Find Bourbon Chicken Cooking Sauce?
Bourbon Chicken cooking sauce is available at most grocers. It can be found in the International food section with the Asian cooking products like Soy sauce.
How To Thicken The Bourbon Sauce?
If after cooking the Crock Pot Bourbon Chicken you find the sauce is thin you can thicken it up with a slurry of 2 tablespoons of cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons of cool water added to the crock pot after 1 and a half hours, if cooking bite size pieces of chicken.
Mix the cornstarch slurry into the bourbon chicken sauce and replace the lid.
Allow the Bourbon chicken to cook for another 30 minutes. Do not over cook the chicken.
If for some reason the bourbon chicken sauce has not thickened and the chicken meat is done you can carefully pour the bourbon sauce into a sauce pan and bring it to a boil on the stove.
This will thicken the bourbon chicken sauce in just a few minutes once it comes to a boil.
Pour the thickened sauce over the cooked chicken and serve over cooked white rice.

Should I Use Chicken Breasts or Chicken Thighs?
Traditionally Bourbon Chicken is made with boneless skinless chicken thighs. Chicken thigh meat is juicier than the white meat of chicken breasts.
My family prefers white meat so I use chicken breasts for most of my crock pot chicken recipes. But you can use boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of boneless chicken breasts if that is what your family will eat.

Recipe Expert Tips
- NOTES: The cooking time will depend on a number of factors. Bite size pieces of chicken will cook very quickly. If you are in a hurry to get dinner on the table cut the chicken up and cook on high.
- If you need more cooking time leave the chicken pieces whole. Whole pieces of chicken breast halves or boneless chicken thighs will take longer to cook. Cook this recipe on low.
- If you pack the chicken into the crock pot when doubling this recipe will add an hour or more.
