Golden Corral Bourbon Chicken

The Menu:
Golden Corral Bourbon Chicken

The Original Recipe:
I found this on the internet doing a search one night after eating at the Golden Corral (for the first time in years!). This chicken was so good, and I could not get the yummy taste out of my mind. I had to find a recipe.
So, let's just say I will stick with the Golden Corral when I want my bourbon chicken (which will be in another 10 yr.s probably). This had such a strong, and I want to emphisize the word STRONG, after taste of alcohol to it. Whoooo.. it was so strong I fed the kids something else to eat that night! I wanted to share it though because my husband really liked it (and he is not a drinker, mind you), but he did like it, and he ate all of the leftovers the next day. He liked it as much as I like the original from the actual resturaunt, I think. :o) 


1 pound chicken leg or thigh meat, cut into bite-size chunks

4 ounces soy sauce

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon powdered ginger

2 tablespoons dried minced onion

1/2 cup Jim Beam Bourbon Whiskey

2 tablespoons white wine

Mix all the marinade ingredients and pour over chicken pieces in a bowl. Cover and refrigerate (stirring often) for several hours (best overnight).

Bake chicken at 350 degrees for 1 hour in a single layer, basting every 10 minutes.

Remove chicken. Scrape pan juices with all the brown bits into a frying pan. Heat, and add white wine. Stir and add chicken. Cook for 5 minutes and serve.
