Sauteed Chicken Breasts With Soy Glaze

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Reddyrat

This is a fabulously easy recipe. I adapted it from Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything. The recipe calls for marinated chicken thighs. I made the recipe faster using chopped chicken breasts and not marinating. I think marinating would add to the taste, but not measurably. The sauce might be improved by adding some cornstarch to thicken it. I didn't mind a thin sauce.

*Reviewed during ZWT4 Family Picks* I made this using chicken breaast and did marinate in the suace for around 30 minutes. I used a Japanese soy sauce that is gluten-free but was not salt-reduced. The recipe was good and the chicken was very moist and tasty (although a little too salty) I think the recipe would bemore to my taste with some added veges- perhaps onions and bell pepper. A quick and easy recipe. If I use this recipe again...then I will definitely be looking for a suitable low-salt soy sauce. Photo also being posted
