How to Make Garlic Chicken


  • 1Combine vinegar, soy sauce, honey and ginger in a small bowl and set aside.
  • 2Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    Add chicken, cook about 10 minutes or until evenly browned on all sides.
  • 3Add garlic and red pepper.
    Cook, stirring often, 2-3 minutes.
    Drain excess fat.
  • 4Add vinegar mixture and reduce heat to simmer.
    Cover and simmer for about 15 minutes or until chicken is tender and juices run clear.
  • 5Uncover chicken, cook about 2 minutes, or until sauce is reduced and thickened.
    Serve on a bed of white rice or alone.
  • 6Chef Note: I like to bump this up a little bit sometimes and will add small pieces of broccoli, celery, green pepper and some sliced carrots to the mix. I would add them during the 15 minutes of simmer time. Try experimenting!!
