  • 1 Tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 Tablespoon water
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • freshly sliced green onions, optional


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, over medium heat, combine cornstarch, water, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and pepper. Stir mixture and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens and bubbles; about 10 minutes or so. Once sauce thickens remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Place chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish. Pour half of the sauce evenly over the chicken. Place dish in oven and bake for 20 minutes. Pour the remaining sauce over the chicken and bake another 20 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. (Internal temperature of chicken needs to be 165 degrees F.)
  • Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serve with rice and veggies 🙂

  1. Can this be prepared ahead of time? Could you make the sauce earlier in the day? Or how would you do it? Thanks.

    1. Kathy! Sorry, just noticed your comment. I have never tried to make this in advance. If I were to, yes I would make the sauce in advance, let it cool and refrigerate until ready to use. Again, I’ve never tried this, so not sure how it would work out. Good luck!

    1. Yes Tia, I think you could, although I’ve not tried it. I would make the glaze and pour over chicken in crock pot. Cook atleast 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low heat. let me know how it turns out!
