FOOD CRAVE: Sweet & Salty Chicken

This dish I call Sweet & Salty Chicken was created accidentally, however it has become one of my family dishes that fulfills our “food crave.” I was trying to make stew chicken. I browned the chicken with oil and brown sugar, but I put too much sugar and the chicken came out very sweet. I try to correct the problem by adding more salt. When I was done, I had my own version of stew chicken that was not stew chicken at all, my husband calls it Chinese chicken, I call it sweet & salty. Whatever you want to call it, I hope you call it delicious once you try it.
