Bourbon Roasted Chicken

A roasted chicken that falls off the bone. It's cooked slow, in a large cooking bag. The bag allows you to be used to marinate the chicken overnight, as well as being cooked in the same bag! This amazing tasting bourbon sauce will astound your family and guests. Cooking has never been so easy!


After the chicken has cooked, I cut it and it is so tender and juicy if falls right off the bone.

Juice just pours out of this moist bird. Flavors are throughout this chicken sweet and delicious.


Coating this with flour, makes sure the bird doesn't stick to the bag.




Marinading overnight is always the best option, as the flavors and tenderness are amazing. Don't forget to follow the direction by putting flour in the bag and just before baking pierce with six holes to make sure this bird will evenly brown.



No clean up...its so easy to use, marinate and cooking in the same bag, its never been so easy!


Most of the spices you will have on hand. The bourbon marinade is so perfect to make this chicken one that is asked for time and time again. So easy, no mess, toss it all in the bag, bake, slice and serve!





1 3 to 4 pound roasting chicken
1/2 cup bourbon
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 of pineapple preserves or you can used canned pineapple pureed
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic minced
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Place whole chicken lined with flour (follow directions on packaging), into a cooking bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken in the bag. Seal and place in cooking pan into the refrigerator. Marinade overnight. Before cooking, with a sharp knife, poke six slits in the bag, this will allow this chicken to brown evenly. Place in oven on 250 and cook slow for 1/2 hour per pound.

When cook, let sit for around 15 minutes, slice if you can, as this will fall apart. Serve alone, over rice, pasta, on sandwich rolls, over broccoli, there are many ways you will come up with to serve this wonderful chicken.

Considering we eat chicken 3-4 times a week, you knowI always need new recipes. I love the ease of this for the weekday and how scrumptious - so tender.
