Simmered Chinese Chicken

Recipe by Souchef

I got this recipe off of a chicken wrapper, and have been fixing it for the past several years. It is a quick recipe and doesn't require a lot of prep time. It has a great flavor.

I cooked this last night. I wouldn't call it great, but better than good. It is a good alternate choice for cooking chicken
