It's all in the presentation...

I tried a new recipe called
Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken
I used the frozen chicken breast from Costco.
The sauce carmelized on the chicken and kept it very moist.
Mostly, I liked shaping the rice in a measuring cup then topping it with a few sprigs of fresh oregano.


1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger root
2 teaspoons chopped garlic
2 tablespoons hot sauce
salt and pepper to taste 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (cut into 1/2 inch strips)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
Mix together brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and hot sauce in a small bowl.

Lightly salt and pepper the chicken strips.  I used very little salt since Soy Sauce is salty. 

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken strips and brown on both sides, about 1 minute per side. Pour the sauce over the chicken. Simmer uncovered until the sauce thickens, 8 to 10 minutes.

 One of my rice "towers" toppled.  My husband was so paient to wait for me to rebuild it before serving!  :)
