I added a little extra brown sugar, chili sauce, lime juice, and soy sauce to the dipping sauce. I also marinated the chicken in soy sauce, lime juice, chili sauce, and a teeny bit of sesame oil. I then cooked some thin spaghetti and put it all together. A simple, yummy weeknight meal!

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Pat the chicken dry with paper towels and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Cook until golden brown and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to individual plates.
