This Bourbon Chicken recipe is a tasty way to spice up your Chinese home cooking.  It’s an old recipe from the Godfathers of the South, downtown New Orleans, in the French Quarter, right on Bourbon Street.  Some say that’s where this recipe get’s it’s name and others think there’s actually Bourbon in the recipe. Either way, it’s a fun recipe and it will definitely impress your audience, it’s that good!

Poor Man's Gourmet Kitchen

I’m just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone’s Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
