Ingredients

  • 2 lbs chicken breast
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon Asian chili garlic sauce
  • 6 garlic cloves garlic pressed

For garnish:

  • 2 green onions chopped

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the vinegar, honey, soy sauce, oil, chili sauce, and garlic until honey is dissolved and everything is combined.
  • Trim the chicken breast, then cut each chicken breast in half so that it is half the thickness. Place the chicken flat, in a large baking dish, and cover with 1/2 cup of the sauce. Refrigerate for 30 minutes, turning the chicken 1-2 times.
  • While the chicken is marinating, pour the remaining sauce into a small sauce pan over medium high heat and bring to a boil.  Continue to boil, stirring regularly, for 5-8 minutes or until the sauce has reduced to a thicker consistency.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Remove the chicken from the fridge and drain the marinade.  Brush each side of the chicken with the thickened sauce. Then bake at 400˚F for 20 minutes, then baste the top side of the chicken with another coat of the sauce and cook an additional 5-15 minutes or until the chicken reaches an internal temp of 165˚F.
  • Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes, then slice the chicken and serve hot! Enjoy!

Notes

  • You can use other cuts of chicken such as tenderloins, wings, or thighs if preferred. Cooking time may vary based on cut.
  • Reduce or increase the spice by adding less or more chili sauce.
  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container for 3-4 days in the refrigerator or in the freezer for up to a month.
