This Fukien Red-Cooked Chicken recipe gets its inspiration from a traditional Chinese preparation. You'll enjoy the flavors in this dish. "Red cooking" is popular throughout most of northern, eastern, and southeastern China. The name is derived from the dark red-brown color that comes from the braising. Serve with hot cooked rice and sprinkle with additional chopped green onions, if desired.

    Very Bland. Have no idea where the red comes in. Basically just boiled chicken in sweet soy sauce. Don't waste the time and money.
