Y’all know that crock pot Bourbon Street chicken recipe that has been swarming Pinterest for the past 57 years?
Yeah, you know the one.
The one that tastes exactly like the sweet chunks of chicken that are speared on tiny toothpicks and handed out in every mall food court across America yet has absolutely zero bourbon in it?
Well, this chicken tastes exactly like that, but completely and totally different.
These little sammies are just so darn cute and scrumptious they make me want to stuff five thousand of them in my cheeks and hoard them like a little squirrel getting ready for winter. They are soooo good, and I know this because I scarfed about six of them down before my morning coffee because I smelled them cooking in the crock pot all dang day long, and I couldn’t eat them because of the stupid 3 Day Military Diet I decided to torture myself with yesterday.
And do you know that my husband totally cheated on his diet? So not only did he get to come home and eat a plateful of these little phillies, but he then proceeded to finish of an amazingly delicious test recipe I made this weekend for Jackie from The Beeroness’ cookbook.
The good thing though is that this recipe will feed a crowd at a party. Like, oh I don’t know, a super bowl party maybe? A crowd full of manly men and sporty women who will be stuffing their faces full of chips and salsa, chips and dip, chicken wings, and healthy orange bourbon street mini chicken phillies as they freak out over the umpire’s calls while the citrusy sweet sauce dribbles down their chins and fingers.
Once the flavors of the sauce starts to tingle on their tongues and your friends recognize the deliciousness they are eating, their faces will light up and giant hearts will start pulsating out of their eye sockets and they will instantly love you as much as they adore the amazeballs Budweiser commercials.
This chicken recipe is incredibly easy to make, is healthier than other bourbon street chicken recipes I’ve seen, it acts not only as a filling for sandwiches but also as a lower calorie alternative for your standard Chinese orange chicken as well. Plus, the addition of the fresh orange totally transforms this super simple chicken dish into a giant pot of flipping Felix Felicis, and it’s sure to make you the luckiest person in the room.
Now buy a couple of high dollar squares, sit down and lie back because this one’s a winner.
