Sticky, Spicy & Sweet Chicken

In case you haven't figured it out yet, chicken is my all time favorite food to "play" with.  I love trying new recipes and then figuring out what I need to do (if anything) to perfect the recipe to my family's liking.  Sometimes it takes a few tries...but this time, I winged it and threw some things together and it was pretty perfect!  It's a lot like the crunchy chicken with honey garlic sauce, found here, just not fried...which means healthier!!

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce (I find reduced sodium is best!)
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger root
  • 1-1/2 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

Fry lightly salted and peppered chicken in 2 tablespoons of oil until browned 
and cooked thru (about 1 minute on each side).  

Mix together brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and hot sauce in a small bowl.

Pour sauce over chicken.  Let simmer uncovered for 8-10 minutes or until thickened.  
Serve over rice or noodles.   Delish!!
