Easy Asian Chicken

Do you like to entertain? Do you like Asian style meals? Here is a recipe that can save you time and money if you need to feed a lot of people in a hurry. You can also freeze this and heat it up later. I make this (mildly spicy) chicken for my family of seven and it always goes pretty far! And it’s delicious too!

You will need:

3 lbs of boneless skinless dark meat chicken, cut into chunks

1 onion

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup vinegar

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 tsp chili paste

3 TBSP brown sugar

2 TBSP lime juice

1 TBSP soy sauce

2 TBSP hoisin sauce

1/3 cup cornstarch (or enough to evenly coat chicken)

First julienne the onion (cut into matchsticks)

Thoroughly coat chicken with cornstarch

Saute onions and garlic in a few TBSP of oil

Mix water, vinegar, brown sugar, hoisin sauce, chili paste, lime juice, and soy sauce together

Add the cornstarch-coated meat to the onions and garlic. Stir occasionally until chicken is fully cooked and cornstarch is starting to crisp slightly in some places. Pour the sauce on.

Continue to simmer for about 7 min.

Serve with rice, honey glazed carrots, and zucchini sauteed in oyster sauce and you will have a healthy and filling meal that is sure to please just about everyone!
