Super Easy Louisiana Drunken Chicken Recipe

Updated on June 7, 2014

I moved to Louisiana from Michigan in my early teens and what an eye opener. Not only was everything so relaxed and seemingly effortless, the food was fantastic. No more goulash for me! The first time I tried drunk chicken I was hooked and you will be too.

So here is one of the first things I tried when I moved to Ponchatoula, Drunk Chicken. Super easy to make and well worth the booze to make it. You can try this great recipe out in the yard on your grill, or in your home in your oven.
