Tip: This chicken is also delicious with mashed potatoes. Mom served the thick, tangy sauce that coats this tender chicken as a gravy over rice or mashed potatoes. It makes a welcome centerpiece for any meal. —Donna Sasser Hinds, Milwaukie, Oregon

MY REVIEW

This was delicious! I made it for a family dinner and was hoping for leftovers but there was none left!

MY REVIEW

I thought this was unique and turned out different than what I expected- almost has a Chinese flair to it. Really saucy and good, and the chicken cooks up marvelously tender. Next time though, I'll make it in a pot instead of a skillet- it has a tendency to splatter and made quite a mess of the stove!
