Firecracker Chicken

F & L Market has chicken for .99 a pound. This is one of the most popular recipes I have ever shared on Five and Dine. Back by popular demand.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup hot/chili sauce (such as Frank’s Red Hot or Sriracha)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar or honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pound boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper to taste
Directions
Heat the hot sauce, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and chili pepper flakes in a small saucepan until the sugar has melted into the sauce. Heat the oil in a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, season the chicken with the salt and pepper, add to the pan and brown, about 3-5 minutes per side. Transfer to a preheated 400 F oven and bake until the chicken is cooked, about 10-15 minutes, basting with the sauce
This is also good on grilled chicken. I reserve some of the sauce to serve on the side.
