Discover our tender braised Chinese chicken with chestnuts, green onion, and ginger. A garnish of coriander gives the dish a wonderfully fresh twist, while Knorr® Chicken Broth Mix provides a well-rounded, rich flavor. With just a quick 10-minute marinade, this is an everyday dinner that requires little preparation but is packed full of great taste. Packaged chestnuts can be exchanged for fresh chestnuts if preferred – just remember to boil them for 5-minutes to make removing the shell that little bit easier.

  • 1 (2 lbs) whole chicken
  • 8 oz packaged chestnut
