Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Medium Oven-Safe Pan
  • 1 Mixing Bowl

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Sear and Cook the Chicken
    1

    Sear and Cook the Chicken

    Pat chicken breasts dry, and season both sides with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Heat a medium oven-safe pan over medium-high heat. Add 2 tsp. olive oil and chicken to hot pan and cook until browned, 3-4 minutes. Flip chicken and place pan in oven. Roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate. Rest 5 minutes. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean. While chicken bakes, prepare ingredients.

  • Step 2 - Start Preparing the Ingredients

    Slice and Sauce the Chicken

    Once rested, cut chicken into ¼" slices. In pan used to cook chicken, carefully stir sweet chili sauce, seasoned rice vinegar, white portions of green onion, and ginger until combined. Residual heat will warm sauce; no need to return to heat. Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pan and flip chicken to cover with sauce.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish
