Bourbon Chicken: Skillet Freezer Meal Recipe (Tasty and delicious dinner)

When we went to Louisiana last year, I fell in LOVE with Bourbon Chicken- the syrupy sweet taste is just too good to pass up, so rarely do I resist that urge! Heaped over rice with a little—-okay a lot of extra sauce to make it even better. Guess what? It makes an amazing freezer meal -perfect for our Freezer Skillet Meal recipe series, all you need to do is add rice and you have a tasty dinner day in less than 20 minutes time! delicious, syrupy, tender, and full of all the flavor that the fast-food joints offer and you can keep your pajamas on. I have given you two freezer meal recipes for cooking – either precook and then finish off in skillet freezer to heat or bake it through once thawed.


Ingredients for Bourbon Chicken Freezer meal;

1 ½ lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts

½ cup bourbon

¼ cup apple cider vinegar

¼ cup water

½-¾ cup brown sugar

⅓ cup soy sauce

½ tsp. ginger

2 tsp. cornstarch

1 garlic clove, crushed

¼ tsp. red pepper flakes


To Prep:

  • Chop chicken breasts into small bite-sized pieces- no bigger than 1”x1”
  • Place all ingredients in a gallon ziplock bag, press flat.
  • Now if you wanted to cook this in a skillet freezer on the stove-top pot you would need to pre cooked chicken, cool it, dice, add remaining ingredients, and just heat through in a skillet freezer once thawed. However, I did not want to cook more than once so for this recipe I prepared raw and will follow the directions below.

To Cook:

  • Thaw freezing bag contents.
  • Preheat oven to 325°.
  • Place thawed ingredients in a large oven-safe skillet (a baking sheet or large cake pot will work as well) bake time for 1 – ½ hours, basting frequently with juice in a pot.
  • Serve over rice or Asian noodles, enjoy your dinner!
