Paleo Bourbon Chicken

My sister, Rosita, used to make Bourbon Chicken and Chicken Fried Steak every time I came to visit! She also used to carry around pickles and lunch meat for me to snack on ;) Anywho, I was staying with my momma for the week, so we decided to edit the Bourbon Chicken recipe and make a "Paleo" version. Liquor technically isn't Paleo, but everything else in this meal is right on point! This is a quick meal and extremely tasty!

Printable Recipe

3/4lb of chicken, diced
1 tbs coconut oil or butter to grease the pan
3 cloves of garlic crushed, or 1-2 tbs minced garlic
1tsp dried rosemary
1/4 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 cup bourbon (Momma likes Jim Beam, so that was the brand we used)
2 tbs tahini (you could try almond butter if you have it on hand instead)
1 tbs soy sauce

Brown the chicken in coconut oil in a skillet, add in the garlic, herbs and other spices. Pour in your bourbon slowly. When the chicken is no longer pink, add the soy sauce and tahini, stirring to blend completely. Transfer to a baking dish, cover with foil(optional) and bake for 30 min. We served this with a side of fried cabbage and cauliflower rice. It was amazing! Who needs Chinese take-out?
