      Cooking Instructions: Place the olive oil in the pot and add the ground garlic and sliced up onion. Sautee until tender but not brown. Place the chicken in the pot and turn the heat up a little and cover. Open occasionally and just turn and stir the meat to assure it all cooks and on every side. Note: Do not overcook or brown. Just before the chicken is totally cooked, add the bitter melon and cup of water. This way as the melon cooks the chicken finishes up and will be soft and tender as well as completely cooked. The bitter melon will cook and steam at a medium temperature. Occasionally open and with a large metal cooks spoon turn the entire contents to make sure all bitter melon is cooked and none over cooked to the point of being soggy. Season and serve with rice.
