This flavorful soup is your companion on cold days as well as a base for other meals like chicken and rice casserole. Once you have a large quantity in the freezer, there won’t be a shortage of chicken recipe ideas. Note that, this isn’t to be confused with chicken stock as broths are tastier and can be eaten alone.

Ingredients

  • Chicken (meat and bones)
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • Water
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Herbes de Provence
  • Bay leaves
  • Cloves
  • Black peppercorns
  • Salt
  • Soy sauce

How To:

  • Add the above ingredients into a large stock pot and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to low and let it simmer (uncovered) for about 2 1/2 hours.
  • Carefully remove the chicken from the broth, debone and return the bones to the stock pot.
  • Let the broth cook till ready. This is usually when it has reduced by 1/3 or 1/2.
  • After it’s done cooking, pour the broth through a strainer to separate the liquid from the other ingredients.
  • Refrigerate the broth overnight and remove surface fat the next day.
  • Now you can use the homemade chicken broth, or you can freeze it and save it for later. It will keep in the refrigerator for 3 days, and in the freezer for about 3 months.

A sweet and sour chicken quickie dinner is pretty much an option especially on busy days. Also, the sauce can be eaten with almost anything (good luck if it makes it out of the pan uneaten) and has a sticky deliciousness that hits differently. Just be careful not to over cook the chicken. Remember, it’s fast food and it sure does cook pretty fast.

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into small cubes (about 1/2 inch)
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, adjust for heat).

How To:

  • Heat up olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Lightly season the cubed chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Add the chicken to the skillet and brown on one side, about 3-4 minutes.

For the glaze:

  • Mix the honey, soy sauce, garlic and red pepper flakes in a small bowl until well combined.
  • Add the sauce to the pan and toss to coat the chicken pieces. Cook until chicken is cooked through.

  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees as you pound chicken breasts to even thickness (less than 1 inch throughout). Grease a large sheet pan and set aside.
  • Arrange chicken and potatoes on a prepared pan in a single layer. Drizzle with oil and toss to coat.
  • Season generously with salt and pepper, ranch seasoning, and garlic powder. Toss to coat well. Sprinkle parmesan over the potatoes.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, then switch to broil for 3-5 minutes until potatoes are crispy and chicken is browned. (Watch carefully so it doesn’t burn).
