Mandrine Chicken

I love oriental food! I am the type of person who will go to a restaurant and if I find something I really like I will try to recreate it at home, because let's face it eating out is expensive! This recipe is inspired by a chicken donburi dish at a very expensive Japanese restaurant I use to go to.

Turn on your oven to 350*

For the chicken
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 2" cubes
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsp. butter or oil

1. combine flour and garlic powder and put in a bowl.
2. add chicken to coat with the flour.
3. put the chicken on a cookie sheet in a single layer
4. drizzel melted butter or oil on the chicken
5. Put in the oven and bake for 30 minutes

For the sauce

2/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. minced ginger
1 Tbsp vegie oil
1/4 cup water
4 tsp corn syrup

1. combine all ingredients in a sauce pan.
2.bring to a boil
