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."


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



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.

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

I make a modification to the soy, substituting about 1/2-3/4 teriyaki instead. Less salty. The whole family begs for this at least once a week!

Amazing! Only thing is next time I will let the oil get extremely hot so that the chicken will have the crunchiness to it, and I will double the sauce! I had a bit before I went to work and came back and my husband ate almost all of it. Awesome :)

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
