Cook Time: 18 minutes
Total Time: 24 hours, 28 minutes
Yield: 6-8 servings
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 Tbsp. honey
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 Tbsp. grated fresh ginger root
- 1/8 tsp. pepper
- 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
When ready to eat, transfer the chicken and marinade to a large heavy nonstick skillet. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, cover the skillet and simmer for 8-13 minutes, stirring each piece occasionally. Check the breasts for doneness (160 degrees F on an instant read thermometer) and remove to a shallow pan as they test done. Cover the cooked chicken and place in warm oven to keep warm.
Increase heat to medium and cook the marinade remaining in skillet until syrupy, stirring occasionally at first, then stirring constantly as the mixture starts to thicken, about 4-7 minutes total. Return chicken to the skillet, coat it with the sauce, and serve sticky chicken immediately - with lots of hot cooked rice!
