Sweet Chili Chicken

"The "chili" in this recipe comes from Thai sweet chili sauce and it gives this dish both sweetness and a very slight touch of heat. When I make this for my family I omit the spinach and cilantro, and I often substitute a sweet onion for the green onions. Easily doubled. Adapted from Bonnie Stern."

    I followed the recipe to a tee and it was a huge hit! I wasn't sure based on the ingredient list but I happened to have them all in my fridge and boy, am I ever glad I went for it! Try it! If you like Asian food, it's really good!!! I served mine over white rice. For those following a low carb diet, it would be equally delicious over cauliflower rice.

    Very easy. Couldn't get sweet chili sauce out in the boonies, so I used sriracha (rooster sauce) and about a half tablespoon of sugar. Worked great! Will make this again soon!

    We really liked this! I did a bare bones treatment of this, using a little dried ginger instead of root ginger and leaving out the spinach, cilantro, and hoisin (none of them were handy in my kitchen), and still got a delicious sauce and terrific chicken. I served it over some rice cooked in chicken stock and with roasted asparagus on the side. Mmmmmm.... I'll definitely be making this again.
