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!

Easy Orange Peel Chicken

This Orange Peel Chicken recipe is light and sweet.  I made it that way on purpose because the Orange Peel or “Zest” can be quite overwhelming.  But to each their own.  If you want more in it, by all means, add more.  I had some guest’s over when I was filming this though, however, and they loved the way I made it.  So consider that into your calculations and just trust my ingredient amounts before you decide.  This Orange Peel Chicken recipe can also be used with Shrimp and I highly recommend it.

You will also need a good Chinese Fry batter for this recipe and I’ve got a great one that is so simple.  It’s just Self Rising Flour and Water.  You can look at the original post by clicking HERE to see the exact ingredient amounts and Video Recipe Tutorial.
