Easy Chicken in Garlic Sauce with sherry and soy is fast and healthy!

Chicken, chicken, chicken. Blah, blah, blah. It’s healthy but boring. My family loves fried chicken, but of course, we can’t eat fried chicken every week or we’d all be as big as the side of a barn. I like this chicken in garlic sauce recipe because it’s easy, quick, and tasty.

Easy Chicken in Garlic Sauce:

4  skinless, boneless chicken breasts (I use 2 large and cut them in half)

salt

black pepper

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/3 cup dry sherry

1 tablespoon sugar

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper

3 minced garlic cloves

1 teaspoon sesame oil

1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions (optional)

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat for about one minute then add olive oil. Sprinkle chicken with salt and black pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 4-6 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove from pan.

Add chicken back to skillet and turn a couple of times to coat well with sauce. Spoon sauce on top of chicken to serve and sprinkle green onions on top (if using green onions).Serve this with a green salad and either brown rice, fried rice, pasta or sauteed vegetables.

Enjoy!
