Chicken Spareribs

Lillian Russo


This recipe belongs to a cook named Upstatevoyager. He's not sure where the recipe name came from, but when I tried it I cut the chicken to resemble ribs, as you can see in my photo. I tried this recipe and loved it! The brown sauce on this chicken tastes just like the sauce in the chicken w/broccoli dish that you get at Chinese restaurants! The last time I made this I added sauteed broccoli and served it over white rice!
