Simmered Chicken Drumettes in soy-vinegar Sauce

You don't need to cook the chicken drumettes in a pot for hours and hours until the chickens become tender. By using the Microwave Donabe, you can cook these richly flavored tender chicken drumettes in no time!  In this recipe, broccoli and boiled eggs were used, but you can add Daikon Radish or snow peas instead.
