This hardly needs an intro, most everyone has seen it on pinterest, it's been making the rounds.
The original is from "Life as a Loft House", below is my version.
I suspect any kind of vinegar would work, I used the rice vinegar cause I had it on hand but I only had 1/4 c. so I made up the difference in cider. More of the sambal olek with make it spicier, and I would have loved to but my kids don't eat spicy so I couldn't. I also think it woold make a great orange chicken, I am going to make some, eventually, and replace some of the honey with orange juice.
3-4 boneless chicken breasts
1 c. cornstarch
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 c. canola oil
1 c. honey
1/2 c. ketchup
2/3 c. rice vinegar
2/3 c. apple cider vinegar
2 tsp. granulated garlic
2 beef bouillon cubes crushed
2 tsp. sambal olek (or more to taste)
Put all the sauce ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.
Heat the over to 325.
Cut the chicken into small cubes. Place in a large bag and toss with salt and cornstarch until well coated. Drop all into a colander to get rid of the excess cornstarch. Add it back to the bag and add the eggs. Toss, mush, or stir to coat.
Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add half the chicken and cook until the coating starts to cook, the chicken doesn't have to be completely cooked through. Place in a greased 9x13 in casserole dish. Cook the other half of the chicken and add to the dish. Pour the sauce over the top and bake for 1 hour, gently stirring every 15 minutes.
