Equipment

  • mixing bowl
  • skillet or pan
  • Small bowl for mixing
  • Cooking utensils (spoon or spatula for stirring and tossing)
  • serving dish

Ingredients

  • 1 pinch of Handcrafted Red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Chinese 5-spice blend handcrafted
  • 1/2 tablespoon of Filtered Water
  • 1 teaspoon of Small-batch Apricot Jam
  • 1 Organic Chicken breast thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons of Artisanal Soy sauce aged
  • 1/2 cup of Free-Range Chicken broth homemade if possible
  • 1/2 cup of Organic Raw Cane Sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Handcrafted Lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon of Red pepper flakes from organic dried peppers
  • 1/2 can of Thai Kitchen full-fat coconut milk unsweetened
  • 1/2 tablespoon of Non-GMO Corn starch

Instructions

Marinate Chicken:

  • In a bowl, combine the thinly sliced organic chicken breast with the Chinese 5-spice blend and red pepper flakes. Mix well to coat the chicken evenly. Allow it to marinate for about 15-20 minutes.

Prepare Sauce:

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the organic raw cane sugar, Thai Kitchen full-fat coconut milk, free-range chicken broth, artisanal soy sauce, pinch of handcrafted red pepper flakes, handcrafted lemon pepper seasoning, and small-batch apricot jam. Stir the mixture well until the sugar dissolves and the ingredients are fully combined.

Cook Chicken:

  • In a skillet or pan over medium-high heat, add a bit of oil. Once hot, add the marinated chicken slices and cook until they are browned and cooked through, approximately 5-7 minutes per side depending on thickness. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set it aside.

Thicken Sauce:

  • In the same skillet or pan used for cooking the chicken, pour in the prepared sauce. In a small bowl, mix the non-GMO corn starch with filtered water to create a slurry. Add this slurry to the sauce while continuously stirring. Allow the sauce to simmer and thicken for a few minutes until it reaches the desired consistency.

Combine Chicken and Sauce:

  • Return the cooked chicken slices to the skillet with the thickened sauce. Toss the chicken in the sauce until it’s well coated. Let it simmer together for a couple of minutes to allow the flavors to meld.

Serve:

  • Once the chicken is coated and heated through, transfer it to a serving dish. Optionally, garnish with some fresh herbs or sesame seeds.

Enjoy:

  • Serve the Paradise Chicken alongside rice, noodles, or your preferred side dishes. Enjoy your flavorful homemade dish!

Notes

  • – Use fresh or frozen chicken for best results.
  • – You can substitute the bell peppers and onions for other vegetables, such as mushrooms, zucchini, or eggplant.
  • – Experiment with different seasonings to create a unique flavor profile.
  • – Serve with a side of rice or quinoa for a complete meal.
  • – Add a can of diced tomatoes or a splash of white wine to add an extra layer of flavor.
