Sweet and Spicy Chicken

We eat chicken a lot in our household so I am always looking for new tasty recipes that are quick and easy to make. This I discovered a couple of years ago when I was travelling around in Asia, staying in AirBNB rentals that allowed me to cook food at home instead of always eating out. Now I often substitute the chicken breasts for chicken wings and you get a sticky finger licking wings as an appetizer.


Servings: 4


  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh ginger
  • 2 tsp chopped garlic
  • 2 tbsp hot sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • spring onions to garnish and sesame seeds (Optional)


  1. Mix together brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and hot sauce in a small bowl.
  2. Lightly salt and pepper the chicken strips.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken strips and brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side.
  4. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Simmer uncovered until the sauce thickens, 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Add garnishes if using.
  6. Serve with sticky rice.
