This recipe is simple, just spicy enough, and quick enough, that you’ll be happy you’re cooking rather than ordering takeout (and so will your budget).


  1. 2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  2. 12 Tablespoon olive oil
  3. 1 garlic clove, crushed
  4. 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  5. 3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  6. 1/4 cup apple juice
  7. 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  8. 2 Tablespoons ketchup
  9. 1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
  10. 1/2 cup water
  11. 1/3 cup soy sauce


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet.
  2. Add chicken pieces and cook until lightly browned. Remove chicken.
  3. Add remaining ingredients, heating over medium heat until well mixed and dissolved.
  4. Add chicken and bring to a hard boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  5. Serve over hot rice.
