Mandarin Chicken

This is a new family favorite! The chicken and sauce is so wonderful, keeps you craving more! The sauce gets into every bite of the rice and the flavor is just so addictive! My family thought I was amazing for making this meal. I doubled this recipe for our family of 6. -Kristin

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 T. sugar
garlic powder

2/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. soy sauce (low sodium)
1 T. lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
1 t. ginger (the jarred kind)
1/4 c. water
4 t. cornstarch

cooked rice
green onions, chopped (opt.)

  • Season both sides of the chicken with the sugar and sprinkle with salt and garlic powder.
  • Grill until no longer pink inside.
  • Remove from the grill and cut into bit sized strips and set aside.

  • For the sauce, combine the sugar, soy sauce, lemon juice, garlic and ginger. Pour into a sauce pan and heat the mixture until almost at a boil.
  • Combine the cornstarch and water.
  • Once the sauce starts to boil add the cornstarch mixture and stir until thickened.
  • Add the grilled chicken and simmer until thickened. It will get very thick, just keep stirring.
  • Serve over rice and top with chopped green onions if desired.
