Asian Chicken- Healthy version

Asian Chicken

1.5 lb chicken
1 1/5 Tbsp minced garlic
4 Tsbp Brown Sugar
2 Tbsp EVOO
4 Tbsp Soy Sauce (low sodium or use braggs liquid aminos)
4 Tbsp chicken broth (low sodium)
1/2 tsp brown sugar (light)
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
2 Tbsp corn starch (in 2 tbsp water - do not add until you add sauce to mixture)

Cut raw chicken into 1 inch cubes and bake in oven @ 350 degrees for 25 min
Then put chicken in large pan and add minced garlic and 2 Tbsp brown sugar to cook onto chicken on medium high
Add sauce on low heat for 15 min. or until thick

Make sauce:
In a mixing bowl, add EVOO, chicken broth, soy sauce, 2 Tbsp brown sugar, crushed red pepper together.
Don't forget to add the corn starch mixture after adding the sauce to thicken your sauce!

Serve on top of brown rice or Quinoa! Oh, and definitely broccoli as a side!! 

If you are having a craving for Chinese food, this is so what you should replace it with!! My family is obsessed with this meal and pretty sure we can live off Asian Chicken!!! They are simple steps and does not take too long to make!! 

*If you want to cut back on a little time, I even cook my chicken in the pan instead of baking it for 15-20 min, but just make sure you drain the juice before adding the garlic and brown sugar!

Please post a comment if you try it and let me know what you think!!!
