Easy and fabulous!! Tastes very much like sweet and sour chicken from a good Chinese place. This is from a lady in Iowa and was in the Cooking for 2 magazine. It will be in our regular dinner rotation.
- 1⁄3 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 10 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour and cayenne. Add chicken, a few strips at a time, and shake to coat.
- In a skillet, brown chicken in butter on all sides.
- Combine the lime juice, honey, brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce; pour over chicken. Cook for 1-2 minutes or until juices run clear and sauce is thickened.
I like the concept but the recipe needs some work for us. It was very sweet and didn't have enough other flavor. I think next time I would skip the brown sugar, add lime zest, add more heat and add some garlic. Maybe something else like a rum? I don't know. I really like the idea and will try and find a recipe that we like more. My very picky 5 year old did love this though so thank you.
THIS WAS SO GOOD!! I have to admit...I did cheat a bit. We had leftover chicken breast we had cooked a few days ago. So I cut them up, made the marinade, and then warmed up the chicken slowly in a pan with the marinade. This was YUMMY! Perfect blend of some tart from the lime balanced with sweet from the honey and sugar. A definite keeper. THANKS for sharing!
This recipe ROCKS! Such caramelized goodness when the sauce reduces down. Mmmmm, Mmmmmm good. It really does taste like GOOD sweet and sour chicken. I will definitely be making this again and again. For me, this is one treasure of a recipe. Thank you so much for posting.
