I can’t remember where I found the recipe, but it is fantastic and so simple! The entire dish comes together in 45 minutes or less and everybody will be happy with their dinner! The chicken is tossed in a lightly sweet sauce of soy sauce, cider vinegar, sugar, garlic, and ginger and cooked together with onions that caramelize with the sugar and heat. This chicken tastes a lot more complicated than it is! Kramer thought it was absolutely delicious, and clean up was a cinch because there were only two cooking vessels involved – what more could a girl want?
Slice your chicken into bite-sized pieces and thinly slice your onions. Place in a greased and/or lined 9×13 baking pan and set aside.
In a medium sauce pan, whisk together the cornstarch and water together until completely smooth.
Add in the soy sauce, sugar, cider vinegar, garlic powder, ground ginger, and black pepper. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 8 minutes.
Pour the sauce over the chicken and onions. Bake at 425 degrees F for 25-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through completely.
Serve with rice, noodles, or steamed vegetables and enjoy!
