Bourbon Chicken & Marinade

I am making the following:

Bourbon Chicken Recipe

Bourbon Chicken

By: Lucy Loo 
"A favorite named after Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Louisiana and for the bourbon whiskey ingredient; although this dish, sold as Cajun-style cuisine in malls all over America, is reported to be nothing of the kind (not genuine Creole or Cajun fare)! Note: If you double the recipe, make sure that the chicken is still in a single layer. Laissez les bons temps rouler!"
