Sweet N Sour Chicken

6 tablespoons olive oil
6 tablespoons soy sauce
6 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons whit vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon pepper
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 cups hot cooked white rice


1. Preheat oven to 375. Combine oil, soy sauce, honey, vinegar, thyme, paprika, cayenne pepper, allspice & pepper in a shallow baking dish; mix well.

2. Pierce both sides of chicken breast with fork. Place in baking dish; turn chicken several times using tongs.

3. Bake chicken, basting several times with sauce , for 30 minutes.

4. Spoon rice onto serving platter. Arrange chicken over rice. Drizzle a small amount of sauce over chicken. Serve remaining sauce on the side.


We liked this but without the dried thyme or maybe not as much. I enjoyed that I was able to mix everything in the dish I was cooking the chicken in. This meal was a dish for the rice and a dish for the chicken and if you hate doing dishes the way I do you will love this. I wasn't Sweet N Sour chicken that I am used to but it is easy and good so we will keep it!!
