    ciao's Note:

    We love this chicken recipe. I don't know who it's from, but it's on a worn piece of paper in my recipe box. Very tasty, and so easy. The sauce gets thick and coats the chicken so nicely. You can control the heat by increasing or decreasing the amount of pepper flakes. I also like to add more garlic, about 5 cloves total. Great with rice and a steamed veggie, and the kids like it too.

      This is fantastic, and even if the list of the ingredients is long, you probably have it all in your kitchen. I cut up a whole chicken, as that is what I had and made it with that, bones in, because I was too lazy to take them out! Fantastic! Makes a lot of really tasty sauce too, plenty to put over rice and maybe broccoli. Tastes rather Asian to me, no doubt because of the ginger. This is a definite, easy, winner! Would be good with just a heap of wings too, or any other pieces you would have.

      5 Stars all the way - so easy to make! And next time I'm going to make rice to go with this because the sauce was so so good!
