Chinese "brown Sauce" Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by AudreyBG

I love this recipe and could eat it at least once a week! I think it tastes very close to the brown sauce that is served in Chinese restaurants. I have made it with and without the veggies with great success.

I thought this was very good. I doubled the sauce but doubling the corn starch wasn't enough to thicken the sauce so next time, I'll increase that too. I think some fresh ginger would make it taste more like the restaurant.
