Number of Servings: 4


    1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into bite sized pieces
    1 cup water
    1/2 cup light soy sauce
    1/8 cup balasamic vinegar
    2 tbsp sugar
    1 tsp chopped garlic
    1 dried red chili, whole


Makes 4 servings

Pour all of the liquids into a large skillet and add chicken, chili pepper(whole) and garlic. Bring to a simmer, strain off any gunk that may accumulate as it is cooking, keep cooking and stirring until the sauce becomes thick and sticky. Serve with brown rice and steamed sugar snaps or broccoli.

You can cut the sodium down even further by decreasing the amount of soy, I know it is a bit high in this recipe. You really don't need as much as the recipe calls for, experiment until you find the right level.

This is even good cold.

  • Incredible!
    I'll increase the sugar since my family likes it's Japanese food on the sweeter side, but other than that it is a keeper! - 6/5/10
