Here's another favorite dinner of ours. This one is so very, very good, a little sweet and a little spicy. Totally up my alley! It's a take on some yummy Chinese take-out that we try not to order too often. Dang that can get pricey when you order half the menu. Wait, am I the only one who does that?
Two good things about this meal are that it is so much healthier than Chinese take-out plus it whips up quick too. You can make it while you are helping one sweet as pie little kindergartener practice writing his 'letter of the week' all the while nursing a 3 month old. Well, while the chicken is cooking anyways :-)
Oh, and if you aren't that into spicy food just halve the amount of Sriracha sauce. Or just eat it with more rice, nom :-) Alright, here's the recipe, I hope you enjoy this one as much as we do!
Sweet and Spicy Chicken (Serves 4)
2 lbs boneless chicken breasts (about 4)
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp honey
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tbsp sriracha sauce
1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp cooking oil
salt and pepper
In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp of cooking oil over medium heat. While you are waiting for the oil to get hot, cut the chicken breasts into 1-2 inch pieces and season with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the skillet and brown the chicken on both sides. In a small saucepan, add the remaining ingredients together cooking over medium heat until sauce thickens. Pour sauce into skillet over cooked chicken and mix until chicken is well coated. Serve with rice and veggies. Enjoy!
Hope you love this one and make it this weekend!
