Bourbon chicken is my absolute favorite dish when we order Chinese takeout. There’s something so magical about the taste. It’s not too sweet, is a little tangy and, of course, has that wonderful bourbon flavor. So I thought I would incorporate those wonderful flavors into something new, fun and exciting for the whole family.
I decided to make some chicken meatballs and to stir in just a few tablespoons of bourbon. To make them even more fun, I wrapped the meatballs in tender, flaky biscuits and served them with a sweet, tangy bourbon sauce that’s just too good. (The alcohol gets cooked out of the meatballs and the sauce, so this recipe is kid friendly, too.)
I start with ground chicken and use the same ingredients as in bourbon chicken. Then I form the mixture into 16 cute little meatballs and bake them in the oven.
Next I take a package of Grands!® biscuits and divide each biscuit in half.
Place a spinach leaf and a meatball on each biscuit. The spinach leaves are completely optional. I just like to add them to get a little more vegetables in my family’s diet.
Pinch the biscuit together around the meatball. That’s it!
Just finish wrapping the rest of the meatballs. Place seam side down on a lightly greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake in a 350° oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
Serve with bourbon sauce and a simple spinach salad. Enjoy!
