Taiwanese 3 Cup Chicken (三杯鸡)

Been always seeing this dish on menus but never had chance to try it out. I happened to see a recipe posted on one of the cooking blogs that I followed so I just had to attempt it since I have chicken in the fridge. The sauce is nice and will go wonderfully with rice.
