1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
1/4 tsp garlic (or two cloves garlic)
1/2 tsp ginger
Thicken with corn starch
Variation: add juice of mandarian oranges and add oranges with the chicken
Normally, I would chunk the chicken and cook it in a frying pan and then make the sauce and put them together. But, today, I put the raw chicken breast into the crockpot and poured the sauce on it and cooked it on high for 4 hours. Poured the sauce into a pan, thickened it w/cornstarch. I roughly cut up the chicken into bite sized pieces. (it was super tender and easy to cut, not quite falling apart, so that was good). Put them together and served over rice. It was a hit! Yum!
If you like it spicer, I'm sure you could put some red pepper into it. I thought it was fine, and super easy!
I think I would do 2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts to sauce. I quadrupled the sauce and had 9 breast. We had leftovers.
