Shirley's Story

This is an old recipe I got from a really good cook and friend on Maui years ago and I only make this when the kids come over as its way too much for just me and my husband.. all I can say the Island way is that it is ONO to us and that means good! I used to make this for our church parties on Maui. sorry no picture of this wonderful dish. I haven't seen any gobo here in WA nor raw sugar but I substitute it for brown sugar.

Ingredients

5 lb
box chicken thighs- deboned and cut in chunks
2 c
carrots, cut chop suey style
2 c
gobo, cut the same way
