Slow Cooker Bourbon Chicken

Two words: Bourbon. Chicken. What more could you possibly ask? Oh, how about Slow Cooker? This incredibly good dish is made easy in a slow cooker while you get on doing what needs to be done.​ It slowly scents the house, tempting you while it is cooking, and pleases even the pickiest of eaters because of its complex and inviting taste. Rich, spicy, slightly sweet, you don't need to like bourbon to love it!
Slow Cooker Bourbon Chicken
  1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs

½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger
3 large cloves garlic, minced
½ teaspoon red chili flakes
⅓ cup pineapple juice
1½ tablespoons honey
¼ cup dark brown sugar
¼ cup ketchup
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
¼ cup water
¼ cup Bourbon
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce

3 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons water

4 scallions, sliced into 1" diagonals, for garnish

Remove all fat from chicken thighs and place into the bottom of a medium-sized slow cooker. Mix the next 12 ingredients together and pour sauce over chicken. Cover and cook on the "Low" setting for 4-5 hours.
With a slotted spoon, remove chicken to a cutting board and shred or dice into bite-sized pieces; set aside.
Combine cornstarch and water and whisk into sauce until it begins to thicken. Return chicken to the pot and cook until heated through.
Serve over rice and garnish with scallions.

Serves 3-4.

One of the best chicken dish forever, I made it many time in my home to follow your guide line and get amazing taste. Especially the sauce tossed with chicken gives a delicious flavor. My observation regarding this dish is if you want spicier you must use hot sauce and red chili. Thanks for sharing with us Bourbon Chicken
