Garlic soy chicken

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Soy sauce
¼ cup Medium-dry sherry
2 tablespoons Firmly packed brown sugar
2 larges Garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon Grated peeled fresh gingerroot
1 Whole boneless skinless chicken breast (about 3/4 pound), halved
1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
Sesame vegetables


In a small bowl combine soy sauce, Sherry, brown sugar, garlic, gingerroot, and salt and pepper to taste and stir until sugar is dissolved. Gently pound chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap until about ¼ inch thick.

In a large sealable plastic bag marinate chicken in soy sauce mixture, turning occasionally, 25 minutes.

In a heavy skillet heat oil over moderate heat until hot but not smoking.

Remove chicken from marinade, letting excess drip off and reserving marinade, and cook until browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Transfer chicken to a plate and keep warm. Pour reserved marinade through a sieve into skillet and boil until reduced to about 2 tablespoons.

Drizzle chicken with sauce and serve with sesame vegetables. Serves 2 Typed in MMFormat by cjhartlin@... Source: The Best of Gourmet Posted to MM-Recipes Digest V4 #8 by "Cindy Hartlin" <cjhartlin@...> on Feb 16, 1999
