Recipe by gailanng

Yes, what else...another recipe using Mae Ploy's sweet chili sauce. This is a stovetop recipe, but am certain grilling would be wonderful. Should you want a superior sauce even to Mae Ploy's, see Thai Sweet Chili Sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 118.29 ml sweet chili sauce (Mae Ploy)
  • 118.29 ml soy sauce
  • 1 garlic, minced
  • peanut oil or vegetable oil
  • 3 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless (4-5 ounces each)


  1. In a small bowl mix together sweet chili sauce, soy sauce and garlic. Pour 1/2 cup (half the mixture) into a small plastic food storage zip bag. Add chicken and turn to coat; refrigerate and marinade 30 minutes.
  2. To a skillet, add a tablespoon or two of oil and heat over medium-high heat. Remove chicken from marinade and brown on one side for about 2-3 minutes (it may smoke a little from the sweet marinade). Turn the chicken over and brown for 2 minutes longer. Cover with a lid, turn the heat to low and let it finish cooking for about 8 minutes.
  3. Place remaining chili sauce and soy sauce mixture in a small saucepan and simmer over low heat until heated through, about 5 minutes. Serve over chicken.
