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.

My family loved this. I did not have soy, so I substituted teriyaki instead. It was great. Not salty at all, just delicious!

Adding the OJ as suggested by many reviewers helped. Otherwise, it was way oversalted. I did brown the chicken on both sides in multiple batches to get it a bit more 'fried' before adding the sauce. We didn't need more sauce; but there was no sauce left in the pan after the chicken was served.
