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."


Ingredients

Are you making this? 
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

Servings  

Preparation

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.

Notes

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.

Tried this out and loved it! I only put a 1/4 cup if soy sauce like everyone recommended and even added a little more hot sauce. It was a hit with my husband I'll definitely be doing this again

Made this today and loved it! I doubled the sauce recipe so we had more to top onto our rice. I followed the advice of the other reviews and halved the soy sauce with orange juice. May use this recipe again and add a bit more spiciness and onions.

As suggested by others I also added half a cup of chicken stock to create more sauce but thickened at the end with a spoonful of cornflour...It bubbled away quite happily while I made stir fried rice...and the chicken remained very juicy.

Whole family loved it! I read the reviews and also used half soy sauce and half OJ. And I used chicken thighs instead of breasts, and only half of the ginger to adjust to my family's likes.

I cut up the chicken strips into chunks and served it over white rice. Also cut back the soy sauce to 1/4 cup and used 1/4 cup OJ like many of the other reviews said. Very good

This was excellent. Loved the sweet heat taste. We used Sriracha sauce for the hot sauce
