Ingredients

Scale

For the sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon hot chili oil (with some pepper solids if desired)
  • 2 pounds cooked chicken (leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken works as well)
  • Fresh cilantro and chopped toasted peanut (optional) for garnishing

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine soy sauce, balsamic vinegar and brown sugar. Stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved. Add minced garlic and hot chili oil. Feel free to scoop up some peppers from the bottom if you’d like to add some heat to the sauce. (The oil brings an amazing aroma, it’s not really spicy.) Mix the sauce well.
  2. In a large plate, arrange chicken pieces. Pour the sauce onto the chicken and garnish with cilantro. Enjoy the drunken chicken!

Notes

Got leftover turkey? You know what to do – drunk it in this drunken sauce. 🙂
