Hawaii Mom Blog: Oriental Chicken




March 20, 2017

Oriental Chicken

In my cookbook collection are a handful of cookbooks from local school fundraisers.  I don't often make recipes from these cookbooks since there are no photos, and I need photos when I try new recipes, but I do love that there are so many local recipes.

One day I decided to try and make an Oriental Chicken recipe since I had most of the ingredients on hand.

The original recipe called for chicken wings, but I used chicken breasts instead.  The recipe also called for ajinomoto, which I omitted.

The chicken was very tasty, and definitely something I'd make again.
