How To Make chinese chicken

    Preheat oven to 350. Brown chicken in a medium skillet (I use cast iron) until cooked through but don't over cook. Remove from heat. Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over the chicken.
  • 2
    Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, stirring the sauce every 10 minutes. In the mean time, whisk together the cornstarch and water.

    Remove from oven, take the chicken out and set aside, bring the sauce up to a simmer and whisk in the cornstarch mixture until thick. Place the chicken back in the skillet until warm, slice and serve over rice.
