Bourbon Chicken

One of my favorite things to get at the Asian restaurants in the mall is Orange Chicken. The Bourban chicken is good too, it kind of reminds me of Orange chicken in away.  The bourban chicken in those places are always deep fried and twice the calories. This recipe has half the fat and calories in it and the whole recipe comes together in no time. There’s no bourban in the recipe but other ingredients in the recipe make up for that. If you don’t like it spicy just cut back on the red pepper flakes. We both really liked it, and I’d make this meal again. This recipe had over 2,000 reviews on food.com. Glad, I found it!

Our cook book, 50 Shades of Bacon, got on the front page of my local news paper today. If you get on the front page, you’re  considered a local celebrity in this town. :) We also had one of the radio stations in town here get a hold of us and asked if we wanted to do an interview. Pretty awesome! Don’t forget to pick up your copy or try to win your own 2 posts below this one.
