A Firecracker With A Bang

This week I’m going to post some great dinner ideas for your family or for yourself. I went looking for some amazing recipes and delicious food and I found something that anyone would love thanks to this recipe adapted from http://therecipecritic.com/2013/08/firecracker-chicken/

This recipe is similar to sweet and sour chicken but has a little added kick. Not too much kick and not too spicy. So don’t worry, it isn’t going to set your house on fire and you don’t have to be 18 to handle it, but you are going to absolutely love it!

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt
  • pepper
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Sauce:
  • ⅓ cup buffalo sauce (if you like more heat use hot sauce, like Frank’s brand)
  • 1¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces and season with salt and pepper.
  2. In separate bowls, place cornstarch and slightly beaten eggs. Dip chicken into cornstarch then coat in egg mixture. I have also found that you can put the cornstarch in a gallon sized bag and shake the chicken to coat.
  3. Heat canola oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and cook chicken until browned. Place the chicken in a 9 x 13 greased baking dish.
  4. In a medium sized mixing bowl, buffalo sauce, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, water, salt and red pepper flakes. Pour over chicken and bake for 1 hour.
  5. I stirred the chicken every 15 minutes so that it coated them in the sauce.
