This is my hubby's NEW FAVORITE DISH and it was so cheap and simple to make. We had all the ingredients on hand so, I was just winging it and making it up as I went along. We are so happy with how it turned out, I had to share it here.????

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)
