  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon sesame seeds optional garnish
  • 2 cups broccoli chopped and steamed
  • 3 cups cooked rice


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces and spread out in a single layer in a 9 X 13 inch pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray (you could also use a 9x9" baking pan.)
  • In a medium saucepan over high heat, whisk together the sugar, soy sauce, water, onion powder, garlic, and ground ginger. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 5 minutes.
  • Remove mixture from heat and whisk in lemon juice and red pepper flakes.
  • Pour mixture over chicken. Cover pan with foil and bake for about 35 minutes, stirring halfway through to make sure chicken is evenly covered with sauce.
  • When finished cooking, drain some of the leftover juices into a saucepan. Place saucepan over medium-high heat and heat up juices to make a sauce. If desired, add 1 teaspoon cornstarch to the juices to make a thicker sauce (completely optional, but I love when the sauce is a little thicker).
  • Add steamed broccoli to chicken in the pan and mix gently.
  • Put chicken/broccoli mixture over cooked rice and drizzle thickened sauce over the top. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
  • (This also works great with pork!!)
