Kids are getting back into a routine and school is officially back in session! But let’s be honest… the struggle between work, carpools, soccer practice and homework is real!! After all of that, dinner still needs to be made. That is why I LOVE recipes that are simple and don’t take a ton of time, and this Easy Asian-Style Chicken Breasts recipe definitely fits the bill.
And Yes!! if you haven’t figured out by now—I’ll say it out loud…We make a ton of chicken in this house.
Having said that. Let me introduce you to the newest member of my favorite recipes group called: Easy Asian-Style Chicken Breasts.
This Easy Asian-Style Chicken is spicy, sweet, tangy, and completely delicious. It’s so easy to make, the flavor is big, and it looks all pretty and fancy! You might even have most of all of the ingredients right at your fingertips.
I’ve rambled at length about how busy I am these days, so for me taking some little shortcuts in the kitchen can be the difference between expending more time with my kids or not at all. At these moments is when products like Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice come in handy. Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice is a delicious microwave rice that’s always ready. The microwavable pouch cooks to perfection in just 90 seconds. Plus, it eliminates prep and cleanup time, so more time to spend with family. YAY!
My family’s favorite is Uncle Ben’s® Ready Rice® Rice Pilaf, but I decided that it was time to try other flavors, so I went to Walmart and picked up Uncle Ben’s® Ready Rice®Whole Grain Medley™ Brown & Wild. It was delicious, perfectly seasoned with herbs and spices. Plus, it’s made with 100% whole grains and meets the full daily requirement of whole grains in just one serving!
Talking of expending more time with the kids!! This little lady loves to cook with me, and I could not be happier.

- ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoon brown sugar
- 5 – 6 skinless boneless chicken breasts halves
- Green onions, sliced (optional)
- Toasted sesame seeds (optional)
- Prepare the marinade: in a small bowl stir together juice concentrate, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cayenne pepper, and salt. Reserve 2/3 cup of the marinade for sauce.
- Prepare the sauce: in a small bowl stir together the reserved 2/3 cup marinade and brown sugar; cover and chill until needed.
- Place chicken in a resealable plastic bag. Pour the marinade over chicken. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken. Marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to overnight, turning the bag occasionally.
- Preheat oven to 375º F.
- Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Arrange chicken in an ovenproof skillet or a shallow baking pan. Pour the reserved sauce over the chicken. Bake for 15 -20 minutes (see notes), or until chicken is done (at least 165º F) brushing once or twice with sauce.

Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the breasts, so check if the chicken is cooked through before eating. If you don't have a meat thermometer cut it open and check it's not pink.
