This recipe is an adaptation from a basic soy sauce chicken recipe from the internet and consultation with my grandma. I can eat this everyday! You can use skinless, boneless chicken parts, but the taste won't be the same.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Mix all ingredients, except chicken, scallions, sesame seeds in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add chicken, then let simmer 30-40 minutes, turning chicken pieces occasionally.
  3. Remove chicken pieces from sauce and set aside in a serving platter.
  4. Skim fat from the sauce, thicken it with cornstarch mixture (1 tsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 TB water) and pour the sauce over chicken.
  5. Sprinkle scallions and sesame seeds and serve with rice.

I love how EASY this recipe is! It doesn't require a lot of watching and goes together so fast! Thank you. (Apologies to the creator of the dish: I didn't have the five spice powder or the star anise. Just left it out and it was still very good. I didn't have the scallions either but garnished the top with some chopped cilantro I happened to have - along with the sesame seeds - and got lots of compliments.) Yumm!

Very very salty, almost inedible. May try again someday with a reduced sodium soy sauce.

Quick and tasty dish for those nights that you are just too tired to fuss. I made it with drumsticks but the next time, I will make it with skinless boneless thighs or breasts that have sliced in pieces.
