Firecracker Chicken

We're trying another Pinterest find today and it tastes quite delicious. I did the whole thing on the stove, and didn't use the oven like the original recipe suggested. That worked out fine. There's not much of a sauce, but I think that's how I'd prefer it.  Give it a try and decide yourself. Here are the measurements to serve 3-4 people. You can go to the original recipe if you're feeding a larger group.

This Firecracker Chicken is the perfect mix of spicy and sweet and beats take-out hands down! #recipe #chicken #rice

Firecracker Chicken

1 tablespoon oil
10-12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 large egg, beaten
1 tablespoon hot sauce (I used Frank's)
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon water
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
dash salt

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cut your chicken into 1-inch pieces while the oil heats. Place the cornstarch in a gallon-sized ziploc bag, and add the chicken and seal, tossing to coat.

Whisk the egg in a shallow bowl. Dip the coated chicken pieces into the whisked egg, and place them in the hot skillet. Cook the chicken pieces for 1-2 minutes on each side, cooking until just browned.

Mix the hot sauce, brown sugar, water, vinegar and salt in a small bowl and then pour over the chicken in the skillet. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through and serve over hot, cooked rice. Garnish with sliced green onions if desired.
