Simple Braised Chicken

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 30 mins

This is one of the first recipes I made as a young bride. 20 years later I still serve this from time to time. It is simple and quick to prepare - which is a plus on busy nights. We enjoy it with white or fried rice and a steamed vegetable. (ZWT3 - USA West asian cooks have influenced the cuisine).

I can't believe this hasn't been reviewed yet! This is totally delicious.....a definite keeper and a satisfying meal. The extra bonus is how easy it is to make. It did take a bit longer to make than posted....I also used boneless, skinless thighs, and added some black pepper. Everything else I left exactly as the recipe was posted. Thanks so much...I'll definitely make this again!!!
