Friday, August 03, 2007 Thai Chicken Breasts

We just had this for dinner tonight and it was MARVELLOUS! Jordan especially loved it.

2 1/2 tablespoons grated fresh gingerroot
2 tablespoons chopped
1/8 teaspoon
crushed red pepper flakes
boneless skinless chicken breasts, pounded thin
1/2 cup
salt and pepper, to season flour,to taste
2 tablespoons
olive oil
4 tablespoons
soy sauce
1/2 cup
brown sugar
1/2 cup
white wine vinegar
1 teaspoon
fish sauce or anchovy paste (optional)
1 cup
sugar snap peas

Combine the gingerrot, garlic and red pepper flakes in a cup and set aside.

Mix flour with salt and pepper to taste and dredge chicken pieces in this.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Saute the chicken until browned on both sides and cooked through. Remove the chicken and put in a warm dish, set aside in low oven to keep warm.

Add the ginger-garlic mixture to the skillet and saute until lightly browned. Add the soy sauce, brown sugar, vinegar and fish sauce (if using). Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring frequently, until the sauce reduces and thickens.

Pour the sauce over the chicken pieces in the warm serving dish and keep warm until ready to serve.

Trim and shred the sugar snap peas diagonally. Just prior to serving sprinkle the top of the chicken with the shredded snap peas.
