On my quest to get more ribbons I pulled this from my early cooking days and revisited it today, it is just as good now as it was when I first started making it.

Ingredients

3-5 lb
cubed chicken (i used a combo of dark and white meat, they both tasted great)
2/3 c
soy sauce (low sodium would be ok too)
1/3 c
strong coffee
1 c
sugar
1 c
water
1 tsp
fresh ginger
2 clove
minced or pressed garlic
1/2 tsp
red pepper flake (optional)

I LIKE MY LIQUID A LITTLE BIT THICK, IF YOU PREFER YOURS BROTHY SKIP THIS NEXT STEP BECAUSE IT IS OPTIONAL

1/2 c
water
2 Tbsp
corn starch

Step-By-Step

1Add all ingredients (except the corn starch and 1/2 cup water that is for thickening later)into a large stock pot.
2Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer over medium heat for 40 minutes WITHOUT STIRRING OR OPENING, just shake the pan once or twice during cooking.
3at 40 minutes if you are going to thicken the broth combine corn starch and cold water and slowly add to bubbling liquid stirring constantly. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
