This delightful Chinese recipe combines the bold flavors of garlic, chile, and a touch of sweetness from sugar, with tender chicken and crunchy corn. Perfect for a cozy dinner for two!


  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 fresh chiles, sliced (adjust to your spice preference)
  • 1 cup corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch mixed with 2 tablespoons water (optional, for thickening)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil (optional, for garnish)
  • 1 green onion, chopped (optional, for garnish)
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Season the chicken pieces with a pinch of salt.
  2. In a large skillet or wok, heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the chicken to the hot oil and cook until it begins to brown, about 5-7 minutes. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  4. In the same skillet, add the minced garlic and sliced chiles. Sauté for about 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  5. Add the corn kernels to the skillet and stir-fry for another 2-3 minutes.
  6. Return the chicken to the skillet. Add the sugar and soy sauce, stirring well to coat all the ingredients.
  7. If you prefer a thicker sauce, add the cornstarch mixture and stir until the sauce thickens.
  8. Drizzle with sesame oil and garnish with chopped green onion if desired.

Serve your Spicy Garlic Chicken with Corn hot, ideally over a bed of steamed rice or alongside your favorite noodles. Enjoy the perfect balance of spicy, sweet, and savory flavors in every bite!
