Simmered Chinese Chicken Recipe

RecipeZaar.com totally gets the credit for this one.  I made this the other night and it was easy and tasty.   My dd was saying she didn't want any of the sauce, as I scooped out a portion on her plate... I said it is really good, I am sure you will want some... but this is the child who ate ketchup with her whole cooked carrots when she was a kid...so her pickyness confuzzels me.   A few minutes later. she returns to the kitchen... "Man, I gotta get some sauce!".... so there is your picky kid/now very old teen ( VOT) endorsement.  Enjoy!

Simmered Chinese Chicken Recipe #101777

This is a super easy to make "all in one-pot" dinner. The flavors are wonderful. The recipe calls for a whole chicken but I have also made it with boneless breasts and thighs.

1¼ hours
20 min prep

1 (4 lb) whole chickens
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon catsup
1/4 cup dry sherry or apple juice
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 clove garlic (crushed)
1 green onion (sliced diagonally, small pieces)
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 tablespoon water

Rinse the chicken and remove"the goodies" from the inside, pat dry with papertowels.
Heat the oil in a large dutch oven or soup pan.
Brown the chicken on all sides.
Mix soy sauce, brown sugar, 1/2 c water, catsup, sherry, red pepper, garlic and green onion together.
Pour mixture over chicken.
Cover and simmer 45 minutes.
Remove the chicken to a serving platter.

  1. Hey Bonnie, I love the music on your blog :)
    I linked up to a silly post today. Otherwise, it might be another week 'til I post and link.
    Hope you enjoy. Sometimes git 'er done! is the only way, and then my momentum gets going, and I get more done . . . so thanks!

    and about last week's post, sorry the title didn't work out right. It was supposed to be a heart (God Loves Us So Much! was too long, so I tried to do God {heart}s Us So Much! oh well. Someday I'll be really savvy.

    Thanks for challenging me to be more productive and giving me a new recipe to try as well :)
