This instant pot one-pot wonder is seriously amazing! I can't say enough about it. I made 4 pieces and all were gone the same night. (There is only the two of us at home!) My husband devoured it like it was his last meal LOL! With a sweet, spicy flavor it's just heaven on a plate. We put ours over rice, See how to make rice on our home page. We keep a bottle of bourbon around JUST for this recipe. We are not drinkers at all, but this recipe honestly is to die for...
Is there alcohol in bourbon chicken?
This recipe does call for bourbon, hence the name. The alcohol evaporates as the sauce simmers, but if you prefer not to use alcohol, you can substitute apple juice and it'll still be delicious.
Start by putting olive oil into your instant pot
Turn the saute on and coat chicken with 2 TBS Italian Seasoning Mixture
Lightly brown chicken on both sides
Midway, empty your excess water out of your instant pot, (it's fine it will DE-glaze later)
Once browned on both sides, remove chicken and set aside on a plate
To your instant pot, add soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, Bourbon, Ketchup, 1/2 cup water Jalapenos~ (or red pepper flakes) apple cider vinegar
Mix well and return chicken to the pot
Make sure each piece is covered with liquid
Place your lid on, make sure you are on sealing and not venting
Then press manual or pressure cook for 20 min high pressure
Once your pressure valve goes down, turn the lid to open
Remove chicken to another platter
Add 2 TBS Corn Starch to 2 TBS water to your liquid, stir until thickened
This dish is amazing over rice.
