Are you bored with the same old chicken recipes? This one is an incredible page to add to your chicken chapter. It’s perfectly flavored with a sweet side and just a little bit of spice. Funny story- Stacey inherited this recipe during university. She was cooking for her new boyfriend (husband now!) and not sure what to make. We’ve all been there right?! Anyways, her older brother came to the rescue when he shared this easy recipe with her. It won her boyfriend over, 20 years later the rest is history. Yep, Cantonese Chicken is THAT good!!
This meal can be prepared so quickly. Simply add five ingredients to chicken and bake! Literally, it’s that easy.
Now to serve this amazing dish, you’ll want to create your favorite stirfry. Add whatever vegetables or fruit are your favorite! However, we do definitely recommend adding pineapple and tomatoes. The combination of these two is the most amazing pair with this chicken and it’s sauce.
We also love to pair this meal with your favorite rice or noodle. We promise the entire family will love it. Dinner will be a win. There are enough layers to this incredible dish that every palate or fussy eater will find something they enjoy!
Pour the Sake and bring out the chopsticks! Did you know that not all sake is gluten – free although it’s made from rice?! The key to finding gluten-free sake is to search for any one of the following terms on the label: junmai, ginjo, daiginjo, honjozo, tokubetsu.
Anyways, lets make Cantonese chicken!
