Sweet, Spicy, Sticky Chicken
This is a recipe I found on AllRecipes.com Instead of hot sauce I used Sweet Thai Chile Sauce, which is delicious. I also shook the chicken in flour before throwin it in the veggie oil. It was good, but I like more of a sauce and this was more......well sticky! I guess I should have figured that out by the title--right? This did not make good left overs. Just an FYI.
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger root
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons hot sauce
salt and pepper to taste
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1/2 inch strips
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Mix together brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and hot sauce in a small bowl.
Lightly salt and pepper the chicken strips.
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.
