Drunken Chicken

Recommended Posts

I got this out of the paper so don't know who to give credit to. I had to change it a bit because I could not find the Praline syrup. But it was good, we had mashed potatoes and peas with it. I made a gravy using the drippings and thickened it with corn starch.


You can either use chicken pieces or half-chickens. ( I used chicken breast )

--Enough chicken for all ( I had 6, there was 5 of us and the grand baby )

--Olive oil

--Small bottle of "Praline syrup" (about a 1/2 cup-usually found near bulk coffee section of store) ( I used Almond )

--1/2 cup of favorite whiskey - Jack Daniels - Jim Beam - R & R - whatever you like or have. ( I used Black Velvet )

--Handful of chopped pecans

--Onion slices

--salt & pepper

You'll need to preheat your oven to 375. - Wash and pat dry the chicken, and place skin side up in roasting pan(s). If making 2 pans of chicken, you may need to double recipe. Drizzle generous amount of oil over and around chicken. If using onions, put 2 or 3 'rings' on top of each half-chicken. Combine Praline syrup and whiskey and pour over chicken pieces. Sprinkle with pecans, salt and pepper and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake for about 40-45 minutes -- remove foil - put back in oven for about 10 minutes. ( this will cause flames in your oven, just a warning. But it was not bad ) Just burning off the alcohol. I think it is suppose to brown the chicken but did not do it for me. Also I had to cook mine longer the the time called for but I think that is because my chicken was not thawed all the way.

Now, we used to serve it just like that, placed on a mound of grilled onions - But, another great way is to drain off the juice from the chicken pans (and run through a strainer), and use it like you would if you had made a roast -- you know - turn that juice into a kind of 'gravy', by adding either cornstarch or flour, and bringing it back to a boil, and then spoon over chicken. It is such a good dish and your whole house will smell like heaven! If you prefer to leave out the booze you can and it is almost as good without it!

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming WOW-- What a Ride!
