Chinatown Chicken Tenders

(2 Votes)
20 Min

There's nothing like the flavor combination of spicy hot and sweet tangy flavors that we get in Chinese food. Here's how we can get those tastes at home, with our own Chinatown Chicken Tenders!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 pound chicken breasts, skinned, boned, and cut into finger-sized pieces
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons tomato or spaghetti sauce
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
What To Do:
  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat; add the chicken pieces and saute until golden, 5 to 7 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the chicken broth, tomato sauce, soy sauce, honey, ground ginger, minced garlic, and hot pepper sauce; set aside 1/4 cup of the sauce mixture. Pour the remaining sauce over the chicken.

  3. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover partially, and simmer 5 minutes.
  4. Add the cornstarch to the reserved 1/4 cup of sauce and blend; pour over the chicken and continue cooking, uncovered, 5 to 7 minutes, or until the sauce starts to thicken, stirring occasionally.

Serve over 2 cups of hot cooked rice.

Triangle Hat Cookies

We know a very sweet Jewish grandma who loved to serve up Hamantashen to her grandchildren for Purim, except, here's the thing...the kids liked to call 'em "Triangle Hat Cookies," 'cause that's what they look like! Whatever you call 'em, make sure you bake up a batch of these filled cookie treats!
