Awesome Sweet & Sour Chicken Recipe

Unread postby swerb » Mon Nov 08, 2010 12:15 pm

Bobby Flay recipe I plucked off the internet and tweaked after making it a couple times. Maybe it was the Browns win yesterday ... but god damn is this good.


1 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup rice wine vinegar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 cup pineapple juice
1 cup sugar
2 jalapeno chiles, coarsely chopped
2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, diced
1 red onion, diced
EV Olive oil
1/4 pound steamed snow peas
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro leaves, plus more for garnish
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 boneless chicken breasts, 8-ounces each
3 tablespoons canola oil
Salt and pepper
Steamed rice


Heat the grill to high. Place the vinegars, soy sauce, pineapple juice, sugar, jalapeno and ginger in a medium saucepan and cook over high heat until reduced by half, stirring occasionally. If the sauce becomes too thick, thin with a little bit of water.

Strain the sauce through a strainer into a bowl. Briefly saute the red and yellow pepper and onion in olive oil and then stir in the sauce along with the snow peas and cilantro and season with salt and pepper.

Brush the chicken on both sides with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until golden brown on both sides and just cooked through, about 8 minutes, while also brushing with any remaining glaze. Place the rice on a large plate. Remove the chicken from the grill, place it on top the rice and drizzle it with the sauce.

Best when enjoyed after a Browns drubbing of the Patriots and with several Christmas Ales.

I don't know how I missed the cooking thread, but I have some recipes that need to be passed along. Time to start compiling and mass-posting in the thread. BTW, making Chicken & Waffles at home is ridiculously easy and I have a country rib recipe that is more delectable than the baby-backs at Montgomery Inn.
