Sometimes, I don't feel like cooking. Maybe it's hot outside, or maybe I've had a long day at work, but the last thing I want to do is slave away over the stove just to put dinner on the table. Instead of cooking, I really want to head out for takeout or order in a pizza. The recipe below is a real lifesaver for these types of nights: It tastes exactly like Panda Express' sweet fire chicken, except it's much healthier and saves me a trip across town!
If you've never worked with sweet chili sauce, this is a great opportunity to snag a bottle. It's an essential ingredient for making many Asian-style chicken dishes, and I even use it for making sweet and spicy salad dressing. I like using the Mae Ploy brand of sweet chili sauce, but Thai Kitchen brand works well too. You can found it in the Asian section of your local grocery store.
