Spicy Chicken in Tomato Sauce

This chicken has a slightly crispy outside, but is tender inside.  The spices and tomato sauce give it a rich flavor.  It goes perfectly with rice or pasta and it's super easy to make, especially if you're short on time.



4 pieces boneless, skinless chicken
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup water
1 beaten egg
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper


3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chicken broth
1 yellow onion, cut into cubes
1 tablespoon ginger root, minced
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 tablespoon tomato sauce
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons cornstarch, dissolved in 1/4 cup water


For the chicken

In a bowl, beat eggs and add flour, corn starch, water, salt, and pepper.  Beat with a whisk until combined.

Cut the chicken into cubes and cover each piece with the egg mixture.

Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a saucepan and add chicken pieces.  Brown chicken and cook through.

For the sauce

Heat olive oil and add onions, garlic, and ginger.  Stir until light brown.

Add tomato sauce, vinegar, salt, black pepper, cumin and red pepper flakes.  Stir together and then add soy sauce and chicken broth.  Finally, add the dissolved cornstarch and stir until starch thickens.  Add the chicken to sauce and stir.  Remove from heat and serve.
