Flavor like a PF Chang's chicken.

"I just made this recipe again using chicken wings. I only used a 1/4 cup of low sodium soy sauce. I added extra garlic and some chili garlic sauce. I mixed all the ingredients together (minus flour) and marinated the chicken in the sauce for about 2 hrs. I then baked the wings on a cookie sheet at 425 degrees for 30 min. With the remaining sauce I boiled in a sauce pan and stirred in a 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken. When the chicken wings were done I drizzled the sauce over them. Very flavorful but next time I may use half the ginger for a different taste."


2 tablespoon Brown sugar
4 tablespoon Honey
1/2 cup Soy sauce
2 tsp Fresh ginger; chopped - 1/4 tsp dried
2 tsp Garlic; chopped
1 tablespoon Hot sauce
salt and pepper; to taste
All purpose flour
4 Skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil

Original recipe makes 4



1. Mix together brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and hot sauce in a small sauce pan simmer while cooking chicken. This should help thicken it for sticking to the chicken stirps.

2. Combine flour, salt and pepper in bag and coat the chicken strips.

3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high 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.


The sauce thickened and stuck to the chicken nicely but had no extra sauce for gravy so added 1/2 cup chicken broth.

Can increase/reduce hot sauce to your spicy desires.

I made this today and it came out awesome!!! I used the 1/4 c OJ 1/4c soy mix as suggested and added green onions. They is such a great recipe, I think you could add all sorts of veggies and it will still come out awesome. It is a little on the thick side if you like it with more sauce for your rice add some chicken stock.

I added the 1/2 cup of chicken broth. I also added a handful of cashews and cooked broccoli. Delish.

I didn't fry the chicken as the recipe called it, so i can't say much about it, but the sauce is amazing! I found that the honey you use will determine the overall smell (slight, but distinguishable) and taste of the sauce. Will definitely make it again and again!

This is very tasty and simple to make. I used the low sodium soy sauce to cut down on the amount of salt.
