Dim sum good vittles

Ok, this one is really good and really easy.  We had it tonight for dinner and I could have eaten a lot more than I did.

Bourbon Chicken  (don't ask me why because unfortunately there isn't any bourbon it)

  • 2 lbs boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces 
  • 1 large carrot, sliced
  • 1 large broccoli crown, cut into bite-size pieces, stems removed 
  • 1 -2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar, or red wine or rice
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1 T corn starch
  • 1/4 cup cold water

In oil, cook chicken until lightly browned and remove. Add remaining ingredients except for broccoli and carrots, heat over medium heat until well mixed and dissolved. Add chicken, broccoli and carrots and bring to a hard boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.  Dissolve corn starch in cold water and add, cook until desired consistency.  Serve over rice.
