Sautéed Chicken Marinated in Sweet Chili Sauce

Sautéed Chicken Marinated in Sweet Chili Sauce

When I marinated chicken in sweet chili sauce, it became tender and flavorful.
Dip in mayonnaise to taste.

Ingredients: 1 fillet's worth of chicken

Chicken (dark or light meat)
1 fillet
● Sweet chilli sauce
1 tablespoon
● Salt and pepper
a pinch each
to taste


1. Cut away the excess fat from the chicken, butterfly open the thicker sections of meat, then put it a plastic bag with the ● ingredients.
2. Marinate in the refrigerator for over an hour (overnight, if possible).
3. Heat a Teflon-coated frying pan over medium heat, brown the chicken skin side down, flip over, then reduce heat.
4. Cover with a lid, pan fry for about 5 minutes over low heat until cooked through. Remove lid, increase heat to medium, then brown both sides to a golden crisp.
5. Remove from the frying pan, slice as you like, then transfer to a serving dish. Serve with mayonnaise to taste. Bon appetit!
6. If you're preparing this chicken as an obento item, marinate it overnight and fry it up the next day. Easy as pie!
7. How about trying hand-rolled temaki sushi with chicken? See Recipe ID: 645652.

Story Behind this Recipe

To tenderize chicken, I always marinated it in honey. This time, I tried marinating chicken in sweet chili and sugar, and, as expected, it became tender and flavorful, so I'm sharing it here.
