Bourbon Chicken & Veggies
Chief ZooKeeper has a serious love for Chinese food, especially chicken anything! I was hesitant, but decided to try this out.
The Bourbon chicken and veggies turned out SO well! I love it when I surprise myself! It may not be every time, but when it happens I’m always so proud of myself!
