This chicken recipe has been with my family for over 40 years and as recently as 15 year ago has been on the New Year's menu every year. My son loves this chicken recipe so much that he tries to hide them in the refrigerator. He's a little bothered that I am sharing this recipe with everyone that is willing to try it. Let me know how you like it or if you need to ask me a question. :-) Aloha!
