Chicken in Jack Daniels Cream Sauce

I love all of the TGIF Jack Daniel dishes so I was so glad I came across this one that I can make at home. Even though I have not yet mastered the igniting of the Jack Daniel’s in this recipe yet it still is very easy to make.

I love this served with a side of pasta or rice. I have made this then cut the chicken breast up and served the chicken and Cream Sauce over pasta almost making a pasta Alfredo type of dish. It was so good.

  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ½ cup Jack Daniel’s Whiskey
  • 3 large shallots, chopped (or 1 onion)
  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ¼ cup minced fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon water
  1. Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat butter and oil in a large pan. Add chicken and brown on both sides.
  3. Add the Jack Daniels and carefully ignite. Shake the pan until the flames go out.
  4. Add shallots and cook for 1 minute.
  5. Add thyme, parsley, and ¼ cup water. Cover pan and cook over low heat for 25 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and add the cream to the pan.
  6. Mix the cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water together in a small bowl. Add to sauce. Simmer sauce until thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. Return chicken to pan and remove from heat.
Be very careful when igniting the Jack Daniels. The flames can shoot up very quickly and very high.
