How to Make Sweet and Spicy Asian Chicken


  1. Add all the ingredients for the "poaching liquid" to the pot and stir. Cook on medium high heat for 45 min or until chicken shreds apart easily with a fork.
  2. In a small sauce pan add all sweet and spicy sauce ingredients and allow to cook down and reduce by at least half on medium high. You want the sauce slightly thick.
  3. (If sauce isn't think enough add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to half a cup of the poaching liquid and place in freezer to chill. When very cold slowly add the liquid to the sauce and bring to a boil stirring constantly.) let thicken.
  4. Remove chicken to a bowl and shred with two forks(removing bones and cartiledge.
    Toss with sauce and serve on top of ( my homemade Rice-a-Roni, white rice, or mashed potatoes)
