Bourbon Chicken(No Alcohol)

Oh this was so yummy! We doubled the sauce since we always want more sauce of anything we make. We used apple cider, since that was what we had. We did NOT double the cayenne and it still had a little kick. We did thicken the sauce at the end.

Bourbon Chicken

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
Olive Oil Cooking Spray (or 1 tbsp. olive oil)
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground cayenne pepper
1/4 cup apple juice **we used apple cider
1/3 cup light brown sugar
2 Tablespoons ketchup
1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
1/3 cup reduce sodium soy sauce
1 Tablespoon cornstarch/1 Tablespoon water (optional)

Spray a large skillet with olive oil cooking spray (or use the 1 tbsp. olive oil). Add chicken and cook over medium heat until lightly browned. Remove chicken from skillet.
Add remaining ingredients, heating over medium heat until well mixed and dissolved. Add chicken and bring to a hard boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
If you prefer a thicker sauce, combine 1 tbsp. water and 1 tbsp. cornstarch in a separate bowl and add a little at a time to reach desired consistency.
Serve over hot rice, if desired.
