Bake for the Cure Recipe #5-Sticky Chicken...

To bring more awareness to breast cancer this October, ABCD Diaries is participating in a Bake-Off with 19 other blogs. The Bake for the Cure Bakeoff is sponsored by ACH products.The premise is simple: using ACH ingredients (Argo Corn Starch, Karo Corn Syrup, Fleishmann’s Yeast), prepare two recipes per week (Oct. 4 – 20) and post photos of the finished product.So, each week we will be posting 2 recipes, one from the Bake for the Cure Cookbook and one personal favorite. The blogger with the most comments on their recipe posts wins $500, which would truly be a blessing for our family:)


This recipe is our most requested dinner...the kids ask for it by the name "Chicken and Rice and Chopsticks":)
Sticky Chicken

Ingredients:
1 c finely crushed onion and garlic croutons(we food processor them)
1/4 c corn starch
2 Tbl soy sauce
2 lbs chicken breast, cut into 1 in. pieces
1/4 c canola oil
green onions(optional)

Prep time:45 min
Cook time:20 min
Makes:4 servings

Directions:
1. In a large bowl, whisk crouton crumbs and cornstarch. Stir in soy sauce. Add chicken and toss until completely coated. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
2. Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, covered for 15-20 minutes until crispy and cooked through. Turn at least 4-5 times to avoid sticking and burning. Drain on paper towels.
3. Serve immediately with additional soy sauce and a sprinkling of green onions over a bed of cooked rice.

This meal is so super easy with very minimal ingredients that we always have on hand and EVERYBODY loves it....definitely a winner in our house!!

If you have any ideas on how to spruce this recipe up a bit, other sure-thing meals that picky toddlers will eat, your favorite recipe or you just want to help us win the bake off, please leave a comment! Thanks so much and if you try this recipe I hope your family enjoys it as much as ours does:)

  10. I've never heard of a chicken recipe like this. I don't have a food processor so I'd have to crush the croutons another way.

  16. oooh that sounds like a tasty dinner! If one marinated the chicken overnight, it would make a quick dinner the following day!

  17. It looks good, but we are not fans of soy sauce, here...I think we may try it with something else as a substitute....maybe sweet and sour sauce...

  18. Minus the soy sauce, I think I could make this w/gluten free croutons. It is so hard to find a good "shake and bake" that's gluten free.
