spicy garlic baked chicken breasts with fried rice

Adapted from Cooking Light Magazine's Asian-Glazed Chicken Thighs
If you love garlic, which you know how much I hate ( LOVE ) it, you will LOVE this dish! I even tried it on steak and thought it was delicious. I marinated these breasts overnight and the entire day, and it was so tender and great. I served it over the fried rice my mom always makes.. yum!

Chicken ingredients:
1/3 cup vinegar
1/4 cup lower-sodium GF soy sauce
3 T honey
2 T sesame oil
1 1/2 T sambal sauce
10 garlic cloves, minced
4 free range chicken breasts
cooking spray
1/2 tsp salt

Combine vinegar, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, chile paste, and garlic until honey dissolves. Pour mixture into a zip-top bag with chicken and allow to marinate for at least 1 hour, turning every so often. Remove chicken from bag, and place marinade into small saucepan to simmer. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place chicken on rack coated with cooking spray, and place rack onto pan. Place into oven and bake for 10 minutes, then baste. Bake and additional 10 minutes and baste. Toss the marinade and bake another 10 minutes until done. Serve with veggies or my fried rice!

Fried rice ingredients:
3 cups brown rice, cooked
2 eggs, fried and chopped
bacon, if desired
1 small onion, chopped
any other veggies chopped
3 T GF low sodium soy sauce
1 T sesame oil
black pepper
sesame seeds

Saute the onion and other veggies in 1 T sesame oil in large pan. Add the rice and all other ingredients and stir until combined. Remove from heat and sprinkle sesame seeds over the top. Easy as rice!
