Sticky Chinese Chicken or Tofu

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Julie F

Crispy chicken in a quick and easy dish that can be served over rice or noodles. From Family Circle magazine. I add extra firm tofu, cubed, in place of half the chicken, or all the chicken, which makes it vegetarian. It's delicious that way!

Love when quick and easy is this good! Lovely crispy chicken which was juicy, full of flavour and absolutely delicious. Served on a platter with pasta, made for great presentation. For us this recipe was perfect as posted,we really enjoyed and about ready for a rerun! Missed this in the Family Circle - so happy you shared!
