Bourbon Chicken

My family LOVES this Chinese inspired dish!! I have to double it whenever I cook it. It is super simple to make, so I love it too!
It calls for 3/4 tsp crushed red pepper and is pretty spicy. The first time I made it, Collin took a drink after every bite! lol! Now, I half the amount of red pepper. It still has a slight kick to it, but it is definitely not too hot.

  1. My sister added almonds to this recipe for some added crunch. I will have to try that next time.
