This recipes comes from me trying to "fix" another recipe on the site but it ended up being a whole new recipe. I think it turned out very well, and It's something we really enjoy. Make it as sweet or spicy as you like by messing with the amounts of brown sugar (not the molasses!) and chili flakes. Enjoy! This recipe includes sauce for rice but be careful, if you cook it too long the chicken will soak up the sauce fast, if your looking for more of a sticky glaze, cook it a little longer and leave the lid off during most of the cooking. I have only made it sticky without the vegetables added, so if your worried about overcooking, wait to add or cook them separately. I would also suggest chopping into pieces when raw and pan frying the chicken to help seal it some so it doesn't break down as much when cooking. I would be wary reducing the amount of water to reduce cooking time, as it changes the flavor, and not for the better IMHO.
