Mongolian Chicken

♥ Beginner

Let's just begin this post off with "Yummmmm, I can't believe I ate the whole thing!!!"

Seriously. This was so good. And super easy. Oh, and I cheated by using already minced, refrigerated garlic, and I didn't hate it. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

What you'll need:
* 2 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
* 1/2 C. Soy Sauce
* 1/2 C. Water
* 1/2 C. Brown Sugar
* 2-3 tsp. Ginger
* 2 Cloves Garlic, Crushed (I used 1 Tbs. Minced Garlic)
* 1 Tbsp. Vegetable Oil
* 1 Tbsp. Corn Starch
* 1 Tbsp. Water

How it's done:
1. Cut the chicken into thin strips, or bite size cubes (easiest while still kind of frozen).
2. Place chicken in frying pan over low heat.
3. While chicken is cooking, combine the soy sauce, water, brown sugar, and garlic in a small sauce pot. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Remove from heat.
4. Combine in a small bowl the cornstarch and water, and then add the mixture to your sauce. Combining well.
5. Once chicken is cooked through, add the sauce mixture to your frying pan and let simmer for 4-5 minutes.

Best served over rice, or broccoli. We did both! Soooooo good, we all ate it all!
