Take a medium mixing bowl and place 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 4 ounces of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons dried minced onion, 3/8 cup bourbon and ½ teaspoon garlic powder in it. You can reduce the amount of bourbon or garlic powder to lighten the taste as this will not have a significant impact on the overall flavour of this dish.

Pour the mixture in the mixing bowl over the chicken pieces and completely cover the baking dish with a foil. Be sure that you have covered the corners of the baking dish properly.
Place the baking dish in your refrigerator and marinate overnight. Be sure to place the baking dish properly in the refrigerator as you do not want it to fall while you open and close the refrigerator door repeatedly.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit / 165 degrees Centigrade.
Take out the baking dish from refrigerator and remove the foil.
Now, place the baking dish in the pre-heated oven and bake it for 1 1/2 hours until the chicken pieces are well browned and their juices run clear. Make sure that the chicken is properly cooked so that you get the best flavour and taste.
Remove the baking dish from the oven and place Bourbon Chicken on a large serving plate. It is entirely up to you as to how you want to serve this dish to your friends and family members.
