• Bourbon Chinese Chicken

    Ingredients

    1 1/2 pounds chicken thigh meat 
    2 tablespoons olive oil 
    1/4 cup light soy sauce 
    2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    2 tablespoons good bourbon whiskey

    Methods

    1. Place the chicken thighs in a shallow in a baking dish. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken. 
    2. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. 
    3. Turn the thighs occasionally to make sure they are entirely coated in the marinade.
    4. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit .
    5. Bake the chicken, uncovered, with the marinade, for 45 minutes to 1 hour, basting occasionally, until the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced in the thickest part of the thigh, or a meat thermometer reads at least 170 degrees Fahrenheit in the same part of the thigh. 
    6. Serve hot.
