This Bourbon Chicken Recipe Came Out So Tender & Delicious!

Slow Cooker Bourbon Chicken Recipe

This Slow Cooker Bourbon Chicken Recipe tastes even better than the kind you get at Chinese food restaurants and it’s great because it’s something you can make at home with just a few minutes of your time. After the minimal prep work, the Crockpot does most of the remaining work.

We don’t always have a lot of time for cooking between kids and work and keeping up with the house. That’s why I love crock pot recipes because I can set them and forget them and before I know it, dinner is served.

This is best served with rice or potatoes but feel free to experiment! This recipe makes great dinners and would be a yummy addition to any potluck or gathering. Bourbon Chicken is a flavorful dish I find to be loved by most everyone.
