Sweet and Sour Chili Chicken with Rice

Servings: 3 -4 servings


  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs or breasts diced into 3/4"-1" pieces
  • 1-2 teaspoons light olive oil
  • kosher salt to taste
  • freshly cracked black pepper to taste
  • 3 cups cooked warm rice I used brown rice
  • 1 cup Sweet Chili Sauce or the store-bought variety of your choice


  • Warm the oil in a large skillet, over medium high heat. Add the chicken and toss with tongs or a wooden spatula until it is lightly browned and cooked through, this should only take 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper as it is cooking.
  • When the chicken is cooked through, pour the sweet chili sauce over the top and stir to coat the pieces well. Let it cook for about a minute to warm the sauce and then remove from the heat. Divide the rice and then the chicken with sauce onto individual plates. Enjoy!
