My idea of a great date night is Chinese takeout with both of us eating right out of the little white boxes. No dishes required. I'll take a little of his and he can have a little of mine. Sounds heavenly. Except for the fact that I don't always know what is in the food and I always, always bloat from the salt the next day. Hmm, so much for the perfect date night.
I refuse to give up Asian food so I like to just make it myself. Just without the little white boxes.
This is certainly a labor of love. It does take time to cut and bread the chicken but it's completely worth it. I can make the sauce as spicy or sweet as I like and best of all, no bloat and I know exactly what is in the food.
The name of this dish both excited me and scared me. I love a little spice but don't like my mouth burned and often it doesn't take much to do that.
This is really the perfect blend of sweet and spicy. The original recipe said that she didn't put in as much sugar as she didn't want it too sweet. Well, I'm a sweet gal so I upped the sugar. I wish I hadn't. It was fantastic but it it needed a bit more spice. The second batch I made was perfect. Sweet sauce with just a little zip at the end. I used buffalo sauce, yours might but more spicy if you use hot sauce.
