SAN FRANCISCO CHICKEN



Recipe from the old TOH recipe board, which has been gone for about a year.

No fancy photo for this one. Gabe came home and was hungry. I was lucky to get a shot!

Easy and on my to make again list.


Ingredients:

4 boneless chicken breast halves ( used two)
3 cloves garlic, minced  
4 Tbsp. soy sauce (I used lite soy sauce)
3 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 1/2 c. chicken broth 
1 1/2 Tbsp. cornstarch 

Sliced green onions, sprinkled on chicken for garnish ( didn't use)

Directions:

Lightly brown chicken breasts in a small amount of oil.

Remove the chicken from the pan; add garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar and 1 cup chicken broth.

Stir the mixture in the pan then return the chicken to the mixture . Cover and simmer until the chicken is done. Depending on size, they should be done in 15-20 minutes.

Remove the chicken from pan and place on a clean plate.

Combine 1/2 cup chicken broth and cornstarch- mix well.

Add the chicken broth mixture to the sauce in the skillet, stir well. Bring to a boil and allow to thicken.

Return the chicken to the pan, coating it well with the sauce.

  1. Gosh I haven't made this in I don't know how long....that's where I got the recipe from too. I like to use the leftovers in the Asian Coleslaw-like your "Crack Coleslaw"...that's some good stuff! :)

    2. I know the recipe came from what used to be Recipezaar and is now Food.com...that's what I have for the original source on my copy of the recipe. I think a few different people posted it on the TOH board back in the day.

  2. I loved the recipes from TOH. I used to get the magazine, and I would go through them time and time again. The combo of the ingredients in this recipe are a favorite. Going to have to buy some more chicken this week.

    1. I didn't even get to plate this! Gabe said NO pictures- lets just eat! LOL I was able to get a quick shot in.

      I had a huge collection on TOH magazines- gave them all away.

    2. I had to give up my TOH magazines too. They were so tattered from reading them so much.
