Sticky Chinese Chicken

This five-ingredient chicken recipe is a spin-off on a popular Chinese dish. Crushed seasoned croutons in the coating provide the garlic and onion flavor.

Sticky Chinese Chicken
Servings: 6 Prep 15 mins Chill 30 mins Cook 20 mins to 25 mins


  • 1 cup finely crushed garlic & onion- flavored croutons
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons light soy sauce
  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup canola oil

Make It

1. In a large bowl, whisk crouton crumbs and cornstarch. Stir in the soy sauce. Add chicken and toss until completely coated. Cover; refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook, covered, for 20 to 25 minutes until nice and crispy and cooked through. Turn about 4 or 5 times during cooking to avoid burning. Drain on paper towels.

3. Serve immediately with additional soy sauce, chopped scallions, cooked rice and steamed sugar snap peas, if desired.
