    Turned out great! I added peanut butter to thicken the consistency of the sauce but that was it. I will def make again

    Chicken should be given by approximate weight. too much breading. too sweet.
    Great, but I wish the chicken was specified by weight. Six breasts seems too much, I used three large ones.

    It was okay for a first try, i think i used too much corn starch, and didnt make enough sauce, so to me the chicken was dry. might try a brine and/or increase amount of sauce. Edit: try 2. Brined this time and felt better about cooking with the chicken. Also didnt use corn starch this time. Sauce enough for spinach as a side.

    My family and I really didn’t like this recipe. The chicken had a good flavor, however, the sauce was gross and to thick.

    Chicken tasted good but family didn't like the sauce. Said it was too intense, they all ate it though. Next time would add more honey and less chilli powder perhaps. Chicken was a nice flavour

    it turned out great! It was a little spicer than I like but, I would make it again. I will know for the next time to cut back on the spice though.

    Best chicken I have probably ever made! My first time trying bourbon chicken and I am a fan! My husband loved this recipe. This is a keeper!

    This turned out to be some of the best Bourbon Chicken I have ever had. My Family devoured all of it. Great recipe. Does not especially smell good in the raw form, but once cooked and mixed together, fantastic. Thanks for the recipe!
