Easy Asian Chicken

"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."

Ready In:


  • 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


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 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).
  • 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.
  • 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.

    I made this for the my Dancing Divas Aerobics Class luncheon. I needed something healhty that would "WOW" them. It was the best lowfat dish (if I do say so myself)and everybody wanted the recipe. I'll make it again soon.


<p>I like to experiment in the kitchen and am not afraid to modify a recipe based on what I have on hand or what I think might taste good. I enjoy cooking things that are simple, delicious and nutritious. I enjoy food and beverage pairing. It is interesting how certain foods and beverages together can enhance the food or alter the taste. When I'm not working I enjoy spending time with loved ones, reading, crafts and aromatherapy. I'm always looking for simple recipies to keep my loved ones happy and healthy.</p>
