Iron Chef! Part 2

My work had a pot luck lunch a few weeks ago and we decided on an Iron chef theme. We had three categories and each category had a theme ingredient. Appetizer: Cheese, Main course: Booze, and Dessert: Fruit. It turned out really well! There was a ton of food and it was all so good. I took pictures of most of the dishes, but only got the recipes from the winning dishes. I competed in the Main course category. I didn't win :(. BUT the winning dish was fantastic, so I'm going to share that with you.
See the previous post for the winning appetizer recipe.

Cajun Cafe Bourbon Chicken - Made by Amber

Photobucket

1/2 cup Soy sauce
1/2 cup Brown sugar
1/2 tsp Garlic powder
2 Tbs White wine (dry or semi-dry)
1 tsp Powdered ginger
2 Tbs Dried minced onion
1/2 cup Bourbon Whiskey
1 lb Chicken, cut up

  • Combine soy, brown sugar, garlic, ginger, onion, and bourbon in a plastic storage container
  • Stir till sugar dissolves
  • Add Chicken and stir to coat
  • Cover and Refrigerate over night
  • Place chicken and marinade in a 8x8 glass dish
  • Bake at 350 for 45 minutes - Basting every 10 min
  • Remove chicken and set aside
  • Move all juices, with all the brown bits, into a frying pan
  • Place over medium heat
  • Slowly add in white wine
  • Stir and add chicken
Allow sauce to thicken a little before serving

You don't have to be a fan of Bourbon to be to enjoy this dish! It's full flavored and smells great. It is good served with rice, but I often prefer egg noodles.
Thanks AP!
