Heat sesame oil and canola oil in a large skillet.

Add garlic and ginger and stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes. (Add oil if necessary).

In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, brown sugar, bourbon and rice wine vinegar.

Add the chicken sauce and simmer. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water.

Slowly add the cornstarch mixture to the sauce and stir frequently until it thickens, 2-3 minutes.

If the sauce needs to thicken further, add more cornstarch.

Serve immediately with sesame seeds and green onions for garnish, if desired.
