  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 lb (450g) chicken breast , cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup bourbon

  • 2 teaspoons rice wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • sesame seeds , for sprinkling
  • chopped chives , for sprinkling


  • In a wok or a skillet, heat the oil and add the garlic and ginger. Cook for a few seconds, stirring, so they don't burn. Add the chicken and onion and cook, stirring, until the meat is cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, combine the bourbon, water, rice vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, and cornstarch in a small bowl.
  • Pour the sauce into the skillet and stir well to coat the chicken. Keep cooking until the sauce thickens.
  • Serve over the rice sprinkled with the sesame seeds and chopped chives. Enjoy!
