Slow-Cooked Oriental Chicken

Slow-Cooked Oriental Chicken

"Extremely tender chicken is smothered in a flavorful, dark gravy in this easy and elegant entree. It's so nice to find another tantalizing way to serve chicken. Sprinkled with almonds, this is a dish I proudly serve to family or guests. -Ruth Seitz, Columbus Junction, Iowa"

I thought this was ok, but I needed to add extra things for more flavor. I used more brown sugar than required w/some chopped candied orange peel and a dash of lemon juice.
