"One day I had an extreme craving for Chinese food, mainly chicken. So... I decided to create my own 'Sesame-Sweet-Spicy-Sour-Styled-Asian-Inspired' chicken, and here it is." — LaChefMadam

hot pepper sauce, or to taste
light brown sugar
skinless, boneless chicken breast meat - cut into strips
This marinade was quite nice. I added a little more honey than the recipe stated, and some chili oil. I set it in the fridge in the morning, and by afternoon the chicken was soaked with the flavorful liquid! A little more brown sugar at the end, and in the broiler it went! Out came a delicious chicken dish! With the left over marinade I made a quick glaze, which was a nice topping for the chicken! Thanks!
The ingredients didn't work well for me. I hope to never smell this marinade again. Sorry.
This was DELICIOUS. I made it for my mother on Mother's Day, not entirely sure how it would turn out.
It did take longer than 8 minutes under the broiler though, but that didn't really bother me.
It turned out great, especially if you leave it under just a little longer to get a tiny bit of a burned edge.
I found the sauce thickened once left standing, it made a great sauce to dip the chicken in for more flavor. Thanks!
I give the recipe 4*s and my version of it 5*s of course because it's tweeked to my personal taste buds... When I first read the ingreds it sounded like they may not go together well but surprisingly it merged to make a nice taste as a whole. I personally found the amount of oils too much and so dimmed them down some.. I also put mandarin juice instead of orange juice but a little less than instructed(which REALLY improved the taste in my opinion) and then cut back a tiny bit on the italian spices.
Definitely something different yet good enough to not be "weird" tasting. Will be making it again... So thanks for sharing your creation with us!
This was a good, quick meal. The only complaint that the soy was too dominant of a flavor (had to double the recipe). I think we will reduce that just a bit next time...want to taste more of that vanilla. I added some green onions and sesame seeds at the end. Nice idea, thanks for the post.
This was quite excellent, despite my misgivings about the vanilla. I will make it again!
Delicious! I didn't want to stop eating it! More people should try it!
