"My boys always begged for this chicken. It literally falls off the bones and the sauce gives a rich flavor to the rice. Made with pantry staples, it's easy to throw together, too! Use low-sodium soy sauce if you're sensitive to salt. My family prefers chicken thighs but any pieces will work. Skin the chicken pieces if preferred. A zesty Italian dressing works best." — springermom

pieces of cut-up chicken
Italian-style salad dressing
1 (4 ounce) can
sliced mushrooms, drained
dried minced onion
ground black pepper
hot cooked rice
Super easy to make and very tasty. I will use this one again. The sauce will make a good dipping sauce for Chinese dumplings and pot stickers.
This comes under the catagory of, "Dude, you didn't even make this recipe!", but I wanted to share my variations. I used fresh porcini mushrooms and onions, & added some fresh sliced garlic and a couple of Thai peppers. I sauted the vegetables in peanut oil, then added the chicken (boneless thighs cut into cubes) to brown. I didn't have Italian dressing, so I used an orange miso vinagrette with the soy sauce & sugar. While it was simmering I caught a whiff of the peanut oil & thought, "peanut butter!", which gave it a bit of a satay flavor. Over rice as per the recipe, it was very tasty!
