Are you tired of the same old chicken? Then you have found your new favorite recipe, my friend!!
Not only is this a one skillet dinner (which, let's be honest, already makes this dish a winner!), but it's also easily adaptable (no mushrooms, no problem!) AND it's crazy flavorful and will absolutely wake up your sleepy tastebuds!
You can find Chinese 5 spice in the spice aisle of your grocery store or your local Asian market. You can also buy it from one of my absolute favorite online spice stores SpiceWalla. One of the easiest ways to uplevel the flavor of your dishes is using spice. And spice doesn't mean heat. It means flavor. And Chinese 5 Spice adds so much flavor from cinnamon, clove, fennel seed, star anise, and Sichuan peppercorns. It's sweet, spicy, warm and a little bitter, so it hits ALL the flavor notes. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly!
I highly recommend serving over rice or couscous. You'll be very happy to have something to absorb all the gorgeous sauce!
If you make this dish, let me know by posting a pic and tagging me #amenuforyou. I always love to see what's cooking in your kitchen!
