“This is a traditional style Chinese recipe that has a few steps, but I think it is fairly easy to make. Try switching this recipe up by substituting either pork or beef I really enjoy serving this over garlic-fried Soba noodles; however the traditional accompaniment would be white rice. For a lighter meal (though not as flavorful, try baking the chicken on a sheet tray -- just spritz both the chicken and tray with the olive oil from a spray bottle, and bake @ about 350f until golden brown, about 15 minutes.”
