Sweet Chili Chicken Recipe

I made this chicken recipe for dinner tonight. The recipe is from Bonnie Stern's Heart Smart Cookbook, it is delicious and easy!  I served it with brown rice. A very simple dinner.

Sweet Chili Chicken

1 lb (500 g) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3 tbsp (45 ml) hoisin sauce
3 tbsp (45ml) sweet Thai chili sauce
2 tbsp (25 ml) soy sauce
1 tbsp (15 ml) vegetable oil
1 tbsp (15 ml) chopped fresh ginger root
2 green onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 cups (500 ml) fresh baby spinach (I used 4 cups)
2 tbsp (25 ml) cilantro .. (I did not add this)... 

1. Pat chicken dry and cut into cubes.
2. To prepare sauce, combine hoisin, sweet chili sauce and soy sauce.
3. Heat oil in a large, deep skillet or wok on medium high heat. Add ginger, onions and garlic and stir fry for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Add chicken and stir fry for 2 minutes, or until browned.
4. Add sauce and combine well. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Add spinach and cook for 1 minute longer. Sprinkle with cilantro.
Makes 4 servings.
