Gluten Free Dairy Free Honey Bourbon Chicken in the Slow Cooker
Just in case you are a little leery about making a dish with the word “bourbon” in it for your family, not to worry! According to Laura of Real Mom Kitchen where this recipe came from, the recipe is named for Bourbon Street in New Orleans, so there is no bourbon whisky in the dish. :) Gluten Free Dairy Free Honey Bourbon Chicken is a snap to pull together and, because it cooks in the slow cooker, is an easy meal to serve your family. I show it over rice, but the sweet and savory flavors of the chicken would pair equally well with quinoa, mashed sweet potatoes or cauliflower puree. Yum!
