Easy Asian Chicken

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Busy Lindsay

This is a delicious, quick and easy recipe! I made this a lot when I was a young adult, just starting to cook, and didn't have a lot of money to spend on fancy ingredients. The sauce also makes a great marinade for grilled chicken. The recipe is modified from a recipe I saw in a 6 ingredients or less type of cookbook, sorry I don't remember the exact name of the book, or the original recipe, I saw it in a library and I haven't come across this exact book since.

I have made this dish a couple of times and it always turns out great every time, salty and sweet!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts, halved. (Use less chicken if you like)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 12 tablespoons white vinegar (1/2 Tbsp. is equal to 1 tsp. Cider Vinegar can be used in place of White Vinegar.)
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 18 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 14 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Place chicken in glass baking dish. (A 9 X 9, or 8 X 11 dish works well, I don't suggest using a 9 X 13).
  3. In a small bowl combine soy sauce, vinegar, brown sugar, garlic powder and black pepper; stir or whisk until well blended. Pour sauce mixture over chicken.
  4. Bake chicken with sauce mixture for about 20 - 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. For best results turn chicken over half way through cooking.
