This is a recipe that has been a family favorite for decades. My aunt gave it to my mom when she asked for it, I don't know where my aunt got this recipe. We would serve this on top of some white rice.

Horrible! This recipe felt like razor blades on the back of my throat! It was like gargling with a cup of glass chips. The chicken needed some serious seasoning. I swear that by some unintended chemical reaction, this recipe recreated at a molecular level the fermented urine of Satan. 0 stars, would not scrape throat again.
