Print the recipe card!  bourbon chicken

The great thing about this recipe as a long term food storage meal is how fast and easy it is.  By the time the rice is cooked it’s ready to go!

Funny thing, while preparing this post I was trying to find the blog I found this recipe on once upon a time (without luck) when I came across the exact same sauce recipe on  Apparently it’s a popular one out there!  As a normal meal (or stored in your 3 month supply) you might choose to make it using frozen chicken and in that case you can check the recipe in the link …either way I think you’ll enjoy this simple meal.

Prep time: 5 minutes

Serves 4


1-2 cans canned chicken (*see note)

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. ground ginger

1/4 cup apple juice

1/3 cup brown sugar

2 TBS ketchup

1 TBS apple cider vinegar

1/2 cup water

1/3 cup soy sauce

1 TBS cornstarch

3/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, *optional (if you like it spicy)

cooked rice, enough for four servings


Begin cooking rice according to directions.  In a separate saucepan combine all ingredients *except the chicken* and whisk together.  Bring the mixture to a boil, stirring frequently until the sauce thickens.  Add canned chicken and serve over hot cooked rice.

Serve over hot cooked rice and enjoy!



  • As far as how much chicken to use, our family prefers two 12 oz. cans (rather than just one) to balance out the sauce.

In my book this recipe is used as a:

*Long Term Recipe

*3 month meal

*Pantry Meal
