Bourbon Chicken

Check me out over at At Work, At Play or At Home All Day talking about girlie stuff:-)
Here, I am doing more menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie and finding more deals at Pick N Save for $5 Dinners .

Chicken was on sale at Pick N Save for $1.99/lb. (normally $4.29/lb.) So, picked a bunch up and making some Bourbon Chicken this week. It's like that stuff you get at the mall without the liquor. And, this recipe is actually fairly healthy. Check it out below:-)

Here is what I am serving this week:

Sunday: Jeff's "Plain Old Steaks" Steak for Mother's Day

Monday: Semi-Homemade Spaghetti Dinner

Tuesday: Bourbon Chicken (see recipe below)

Wednesday: Fried Fish and French Fries

Thursday: Eat Out (Soccer tonight:-)

Friday: Left Over Buffet

1/3 cup soy sauce

That sounds delish. And looks like it would be low on Weight Watcher points :-)

Do you use chicken on the bone - boneless chicken - small pieces of boneless chicken?

One question, if there's no bourbon in it then why is it called Bourbon chicken? Not being a smart allec realy curious is all. I may make this tonight for dinner.
