Sometimes, I'm in the mood for incredibly complex flavors, but I've got next to no time to actually make food. Then, it's time to put together a lot of flavors in a sauce that lends an ethnic flair to otherwise pedestrian ingredients. That's exactly how this month's recipe came to be.
I began with boneless, skinless chicken breasts and thought about how to turn them into a dish that would blend spicy, sweet and tangy flavors in a sauce that would be equally at home over rice or noodles. The result is a dish that comes together in 20 minutes, yet brings a great blend of flavors to the table. To round out this meal, I recommend a simple green salad with a tangy dressing and a glass of wine. Feel free to choose a more aggressively flavored wine, as the strength of the sauce can handle most options.

Toss the chicken pieces with the next eight ingredients (soy sauce through hot sauce). Marinate for 30 minutes.
Heat the canola over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken pieces until they are golden brown. Transfer to a plate. Add the marinade and cook until bubbly and thick. Serve over the chicken. Sprinkle the scallions over just before serving.
Yields: 4 servings
Preparation Time: 20 minutes, plus marinating time
