Honey Bourbon Chicken in the Slow Cooker

by angelaskitchen on March 16, 2012

Just in case you are a little leery about making a dish with the word “bourbon” in it for your family, not to worry!  According to Laura of Real Mom Kitchen where this recipe came from, the recipe is named for Bourbon Street in New Orleans.  So, there ya go!  There is no bourbon whisky in the dish.  🙂

The recipe is easy-peasy to pull together and, because it cooks in the slow cooker, is an even easier meal to serve.  I serve the chicken over rice, quinoa, mashed sweet potatoes or cauliflower puree.  Yum!

The version here, as opposed to what Laura posted, is changed for reduced sweetener, to tweek the flavor profile to what my family prefers, and to make it freezer friendly.

Gluten Free Dairy Free Honey Bourbon Chicken in the Slow Cooker

This looks amazing! I’m looking for new recipes to make, as my 3 yr old has celiac disease and has for over a year now. Finding tasty recipes that he’ll eat has been a little difficult, so we tend to stick with the basics of meat, rice, veggies and a few things like beef stroganoff (gotta love progresso!), tacos, etc. Really looking for something that spices up our regular meals and this looks delish! Thanks so much for posting these recipes.

My spam filter filtered out your comment. I am so sorry to just be getting back to you. I hope you enjoy the recipes and plans. 🙂 My kiddo started eating gluten free when she was three, also! She really liked the banana bread (still does) back then and meatballs 🙂
