  1. Combine sugar, soy sauce, water, garlic, and ginger in a large stock pot; stir until sugar is dissolved. Place chicken in stock pot and bring to a boil. Using tongs, turn chicken in pot every 5 minutes.
  2. Boil chicken until no longer pink at the bone and juices run clear, about 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Sauce mixture will turn into a rich, brown glaze. Remove pot from heat and let cool 10 minutes.
  3. Place chicken on a platter and sprinkle with chopped green onions.

My family liked it a lot. I used a little less garlic though, and next time I make it I'll try to reduce the amount of sugar. This is a keeper!

Liked it, but i added my own twist to it: one or two teaspoons of oyster sauce, two teaspoons of Chinese five-spice powder, one and a half piece of star aniseed and the big bonanza: a glass of s...
