Simmered Chinese Chicken Recipe totally gets the credit for this one. I made this the other night and it was easy and tasty. My dd was saying no sauce, no sauce as I scooped out a portion on her plate... I said it is really good, you will want some... but this is the child who ate ketchup with her whole cooked carrots when she was a her pickyness confuzzels me. A few minutes later. she returns to the kitchen... "Man, I gotta get some more 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.
