My Hubby’s Favorite Dish

on November 3, 2009

Teriyaki chicken is my husband’s favorite dish.  He is perfectly happy with chicken breast marinated in a bottled teriyaki sauce, but when he tried this new concoction of mine, not only did he go for seconds, but there wasn’t a crumb left on his plate.

The sauce was based on the Honey Ginger Chicken Breast found on my new favorite blog For the Love of Cooking (  I decided to cube my chicken breasts and so that it would go well with my side of sticky rice and steamed peas.  Matched with a dry champagne (we weren’t celebrating anything in particular, just that it was a Sunday), this dish hit the spot!

Chicken Marinade (enough for two large chicken breasts)
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp sesame oil
1/2 tsp chili paste
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp crushed ginger
1 tsp crushed garlic
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp orange juice

Mix all the ingredients and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds.  Pour over chicken cubes, mix, seal and marinate for at least three hours.  Remove chicken cubes from the marinade and sautee in hot peanut oil until browned.  Add marinade with 4 tbsp of chicken broth.  Bring to a boil, lower the fire to a simmer, cover and cook for 20 minutes.
