Oh My----Tempt My Tummy Tuesday!
Allrighty now friends....this one ROCKS! I made this tasty little number last night for dinner and all the men, SH & boys alike, raved about it! I found the basic recipe on my fav recipe site, Allrecipes.com. Tweaked a bit...cuz this cook always tweaks....and it absolutely rocked! Next time, I will add the water chestnuts and maybe some diced pineapple. OH! How Delightfully DELISH!
Sticky Spicy Chicken
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
1 cup sliced onion
2 cups large chunk diced tri-colored peppers
1.Mix together brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and hot sauce in a small bowl. I then marinated the chicken in the sauce.
2.Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
3.Saute onions until softened slightly. Add chicken strips and brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side.
4.Pour the sauce over the chicken. Add peppers. Simmer uncovered until the sauce thickens, 8 to 10 minutes. (I made double the amount of sauce because we wanted ours very saucy).
5. Serve over rice.
And it is pretty too!!!
