This will be one of your favorite dishes to serve your family or guests. Double the sauce ingredients if you want to serve it over rice. Simple to make and so delicious!


  1. Brown chicken breasts in a small amount of oil.
  2. Remove from pan and add garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar and 1 cup of the chicken broth.
  3. Stir to mix and return chicken to pan and cover.
  4. Simmer until the chicken is done (about 15 minutes).
  5. Remove chicken from pan and add remaining half cup of broth which has been mixed with cornstarch.
  6. Bring to a boil to thicken sauce and return chicken to the pan, coating it well.

I blew it and added all the chicken broth & cornstarch in with everything else instead of waiting until the end and this was still delicious! Makes a thick,yummy sauce. The Kids absolutely loved it. Will be making this again (the right way!) soon!

Easy chicken dish and quite tasty, too! I made this in my pressure cooker using boneless skinless chicken thighs (our preference). After 10 minutes the meat just fell apart and I added carrots (leftover from another night's dinner) and a can of water chestnuts. Will definitely make this one again! Thanks for posting this Marie!

This was easy and tasted wonderful. One of my kids thought that the sauce was too gelatinous, but I liked it as is. I did cook it down quite a bit so I could just cook it less next time. I served this with Recipe #83524.
