Chicken with Garlic and Brown Sugar is my husband’s favorite Chinese dish. In real, when we go out to a chinese restaurant, he doesn’t even have to look at the menu. He always orders General Tso’s chicken and sweet and sour soup.
At almost any Chinese or take-out buffet, you’ll find chicken with garlic and brown sugar on the menu. But would you be surprised to know that this on-the-go staple is super easy to make in your own kitchen? Ever since I found this recipe a few months ago, he’s been asking me to try it.
