Sweet, Sticky & Spicy Chicken

We ate this all up before I remembered to take a picture. ūüôā I found this on allrecipes.com a while ago, adapted it a bit and now we all love it (even the 4-year-old!) Warning: it’s a bit spicy.

Ingredients:
1 Tbsp Brown sugar
2 Tbsp Honey
1/4 cup Soy sauce
2 tsp Fresh ginger root, chopped
2 tsp Fresh garlic, chopped
1-2 Tbsp Hot sauce (1 is plenty for us!)
1/4-1/2 cup flour to dredge chicken strips
Salt and pepper to taste
4 Chicken breasts, cut into 1/2 inch strips (one pound)
1 Tbsp olive oil

Directions:

  • Mix together brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and hot sauce in a small bowl.
  • Lightly salt and pepper the chicken strips, and dredge in flour.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken strips and brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side.
  • Pour the sauce over the chicken. Simmer uncovered until the sauce thickens, 8 to 10 minutes.
    Serve over brown rice or over salad greens for an Asian salad.
  • Tonight we served over brown rice with salad on the side. I think it would taste great with broccoli and carrots added to the chicken to have more vegetables. I’m planning to do that next time!

    Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
