Chinese Chicken

Adapted from Cleverly Inspired, I added and deleted a few items from the original recipe. Only organic ingredients were used as I was catering to the health conscious crowd – my husband.

If you like a thicker sauce, after five hours, take out the chicken and add one tablespoon or more of cornstarch. Then warm up the chicken with the thick sauce for another five minutes.
