Sweet and spicy baked chicken that is both packed with flavour and nice and light!
1/2 cup hot/chili sauce (such as Frank’s Red Hot or Sriracha)
1/2 cup brown sugar or honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce (gluten-free for gluten-free)
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 pinch red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon oil
1 pound boneless and skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper to taste
1 . Heat the hot sauce, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and chili pepper flakes in a small sauce pan until the sugar has melted into the sauce.
2 . Heat the oil in a large oven safe skillet over medium-high heat, season the chicken with the salt and pepper, add to the pan and brown, about 3-5 minutes per side.
3 . Transfer to a preheated 400F/200C oven and bake until the chicken is cooked, about 10-15 minutes, basting with the sauce every 5 minutes.
4 . Enjoy with the remaining sauce!
