READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Ciocia Laura

i began with Recipezaar's Ga Kho but was in a BIG hurry and misread the directions. That, plus my usual tweaking, left me with a wonderful dish which is even quicker to prepare. Enjoy!

I really liked this! I made it with chicken thighs and drumsticks. I had to use a regular lime and brown sugar and I could not find galangal for the life of me, so I subbed in ginger. This is so good, I may break it out for girls night! Made for PAC Spring '11
