I have been wanting to make this recipe for like weeks!
Perfect for a weeknight meal when you don't feel like cooking because everyone at work is asking you to do things fast because they can't do their own work in a timely manner.
Have you ever heard the phrase, "You failure to plan does not consititute an emergency on my part."
Yeah, that. I'm thinking of having it tattooed on my forehead.
So, back to the chicken. Just toss these ingredients in a bowl: balsamic vinegar, honey, sweetener, salt, pepper, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder.
Cut your chicken into strips, toss them into the same bowl and marinade for about an hour.
Go work out your frustrations, run on the treadmill like I did. Then shower it all away and come of the bathroom like a new woman. Ready to conquer the world.
Or ready for dinner. Either way.
Then, just pour the whole darn thing into a large skillet and cook on medium until done and the sauce has thickened some. The flavors will get deeper and sweeter.
I highly recommend sprinkling red chili pepper flakes over as it cuts the sweetness and adds another flavor component, but I'm like that.
I like sweet and spicy.
I like sweet and salty.
Yum. The chicken is tender and moist. It's sweet with a background bite from the vinegar, deep flavor.
