Kitchen Tips ♡
♡ I tried this recipe with ground chicken breast initially to cut down on prep time, but it is worth cutting chicken breast into small dice.
♡ I like to have variations to my recipes to make them fit for all types of families. Liquid aminos are a great substitute for soy sauce. It tastes the same & liquid amino are certified non-GMO with no added salt, gluten-free, & alcohol-free. Also, I have used xylitol sugar in place of brown sugar. While brown sugar has more flavor, xylitol is a great change out for brown sugar due to it’s low glycemic rate & fewer calories. I have used both substitutes & they still make a flavorful dish!
♡ I love these disposable tin pans to serve with!
♡ Try my Ketchup from Scratch recipe to put in the Dipping Sauce!
♡ Try using a garlic press!
