Satisfy your takeout craving at home with this 30-minute sticky chicken recipe
There's something super addictive about that glorious stickiness you can only seem to find in a Chinese takeout chicken dish. I'm not sure if it's the crispy exterior, the sweetness or the finger-licking stickiness part that makes it so (it's probably a combination of all of them), but when that craving hits, it's really hard to not indulge it. Am I right?
What if I told you it can totally be satisfied with a super-easy at-home recipe?
Cue the fireworks.
The best part is that we're baking the chicken too, so you don't get that greasy knot in your stomach like you would with takeout, but the sauce is salty, sweet and sticky all the same. This could easily be a get-dinner-on-the-table-in-30-minutes kind of meal (served alongside some white rice) or a great appetizer to feed a crowd — just stick a bunch of toothpicks into the chicken, and watch them disappear.
