"This chicken dish uses skinless boneless chicken breasts and tastes delicious. It's great as an appetizer or as a main dish served with rice and a veggie."

  • Ready In

  1. Mix together brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and hot sauce in a small bowl.
  2. Lightly salt and pepper the chicken strips.
  3. 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.

Footnotes

  • Editor's Note: If you saw this recipe in the "Vegetable Insurgency" article in the Jun/Jul/Aug 2015 issue of Allrecipes, we added 1/2 lb. of broccoli florets to it. If you want to add the crunch of crisp-tender broccoli to this dish, add the florets in Step 3 when you brown the chicken strips.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

I followed the recipe pretty much exactly. I did notice that when I poured the sauce over the chicken, it seemed to be taking way too long to reduce. I was also afraid of over-cooking the chic...

Really delicious, tastes like something from a local restaurant that we really like. I did make several modifications though. I lightly floured the chicken and then seared it in a pan sprayed wi...

Delicious, easy, and quick dinner. In addition to suggestions from other reviewers, I use low-sodium soy sauce and lots of vegetables. I also like to top the final dish with chopped toasted cash...

With a few tweaks this could be a staple in the dinner rotation. I had to use powdered ginger because when unpacking the groceries they had forgotten to pack the fresh ginger...and how many tim...

I try lots of new recipes and this is the best one I've tried in a long time. It scored a huge homerun with hubby and all three kids (5, 8, 11). It is a rare feat to find something that everyo...
