  1. Stir together the garlic powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and sazon seasoning in a shallow dish. Coat chicken pieces with this mixture.
  2. Heat a Dutch oven or heavy skillet with a lid over medium heat for at least 3 minutes. Sprinkle the sugar over the bottom of the pan, and stir gently until it becomes liquid and caramelizes. Add the chicken, cover, and cook for about 25 minutes.
  3. Remove cover, and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes, letting the juices cook down until they are almost gone. Add the bok choy, and cook just until wilted.

My daughter and I loved it, it has perfect balance of sweetness and spicyness. I made with Bok Choy, I am assuming that's why it was little on the dry side. Recipe fails to mention stir after ...

We absolutely LOVE this recipe-we found it after my daughter fell in love with bok choy at a local restaurant. I was a little shy of caramelizing the sugar at first but now that I've made it a ...

Wow this was delicious! Instead of bok choy I used rice & reduced the cayenne pepper (I don't like my food too spicy). I had no problems caramelizing the sugar & that added a nice flavor to the ...
