I got this recipe from food network, but made a few changes to it and it came out great!! A healthy alternative for Chinese take out. It didn't take long at all and my family loved it, so...this one is keeper!
Here's what you'll need:
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
- 1/4 cup mango juice
- 2 teaspoons cornstarch
- 4 teaspoons sesame oil
- 3 chicken breast halves, cut into 1-inch pieces
- Salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 1/2 red pepper cut into strips
- 1 large white onion, cut into strips
- 1 teaspoon of sweet and sour sauce
- I serve it over white rice
- Chopped cashews for sprinkling, optional
Here's how to do it:
- In a bowl, whisk together honey, paprika, vinegar, soy sauce, mango juice and cornstarch. Set aside.
- Season the chicken with salt and pepper to taste and heat 2 teaspoons of sesame oil in a pan. Add chicken and cook for about two minutes over medium heat. Remove chicken and set aside.
- In the same pan, heat the other two teaspoons of sesame oil and add the onions, peppers and ginger, cook for about 3 minutes. Add the chicken and sauce. Stir occasionally and cook another 3 to 4 minutes. The sauce will become thick and the chicken will be very tender.
- Turn off the heat and add a teaspoon of sweet and sour sauce. stir and serve over rice. Sprinkle with chopped cashews.
yum! I'm getting hungry just looking at this...
