Simmered Chinese Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Pvt Amys Mom

This is a super easy to make "all in one-pot" dinner. The flavors are wonderful. The recipe calls for a whole chicken but I have also made it with boneless breasts and thighs.

I needed something simple and quick, this fit the bill perfectly. Even more importantly, the entire family loved it. Definitely a keeper! Thanks for the recipe, Pvt Amys Mom
