Cooking Thursday - Panda Express Sweet Fire Chicken


Morning everyone, welcome to another Cooking Thursday.

The recipe I have for you today is one that my family absolutely loved and couldn't get enough of.  If you like Chinese food and Panda Express especially, you'll want to give this one a go.

Panda Express Sweet Fire Chicken

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 1/2 cups diced pineapple, fresh or canned
1/2 cup Thai sweet chili sauce, or more, to taste
2 green onions, thinly sliced
For the chicken
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch chunks
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs, beaten

Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Working one at a time, dredge chicken in flour, dip into eggs, then dredge in flour again, pressing to coat.

Working in batches, add chicken to the skillet, 3 or 4 at a time, and cook until evenly golden and crispy, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bell pepper and pineapple and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in chicken and Thai sweet chili sauce until well combined, about 1-2 minutes.

Serve immediately, garnished with green onions.

Sounds like something Hubby would like. I can never get my chicken to look like that though. I've tried a few times. *sigh* guess I need more practice LOL!

This sounds so good Sandra! If it isn't too spicy - my family will gobble this up! Chinese food is one of our favorites.

Thanks for sharing. ;)
