  1. Stir together the garlic powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and sazon seasoning in a shallow dish. Coat chicken pieces with this mixture.
  2. Heat a Dutch oven or heavy skillet with a lid over medium heat for at least 3 minutes. Sprinkle the sugar over the bottom of the pan, and stir gently until it becomes liquid and caramelizes. Add the chicken, cover, and cook for about 25 minutes.
  3. Remove cover, and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes, letting the juices cook down until they are almost gone. Add the bok choy, and cook just until wilted.

I must have done something wrong because all I ended up with was a black pan and black bottomed chicken! The sugar burned and burned and burned and made a lot of smoke!

Dee-licious! Like another reader said, I was worried about caramelized sugar, but wow did it so much depth to the flavor. I removed the chicken when half done and sauteed chopped white onion i...

My daughter and I loved it, it has perfect balance of sweetness and spicyness. I made with Bok Choy, I am assuming that's why it was little on the dry side. Recipe fails to mention stir after ...

I love this chicken it was so easy to make i make it all the time. My husband loves it.

This was fantastic! A couple of things you should know: 1. It's HOT!!! I cut the cayenne significantly, and it still was very hot. I love hot food, but my wife and kids were crying with e...

We absolutely LOVE this recipe-we found it after my daughter fell in love with bok choy at a local restaurant. I was a little shy of caramelizing the sugar at first but now that I've made it a ...

My BF sent this recipe to make for dinner last night. He is Trini and absolutely loved it! It is great to be able to make meals that take him back to Trinidad. I would just add more bok choy...
