It’s surprising that I have time to post this considering the amount of time I have spent on Pinterest in the past two days. Seriously, don’t click that link unless you want to be completely consumed for the next week and a half.
Pinterest is awesome when you have things going on in your life. Like you know, a wedding or a home renovation. You can pin everyone else’s great ideas and it makes you feel all creative and stuff. In my case, I am pinning the crap out of Christmas.
I usually don’t get excited about Christmas until around December 1st, but for some unknown reason I was ready to start listening to Destiny’s Child Christmas album as of yesterday. I even broke down and bought Candy Cane scented hand soap. I am sensing a Christmas revolution in the Delish household.
Since most normal people haven’t even started thinking about Christmas yet, I will get on with it and post a recipe. Novel concept for a food blog, right?
This is my mom’s recipe, she has been making this chicken since we were kids. My youngest sister and I have been obsessed with this chicken forever. Once we ate 5 chicken thighs each, it was a good day.
This chicken is sweet and sour and tangy and flavorful.
Promise me you’ll make it, Okay?
Honey Glazed Chicken:
2 tbsp Butter
8 Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs
1 cup finely chopped Onion
2/3 cup Chicken Broth
1/3 cup Honey
1/4 cup Lemon Juice
1 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
In a large frying pan or saucepan over medium high heat, melt the butter and brown the chicken quickly on both sides, adding more butter if needed. Remove the chicken to a plate once it has been cooked.
Combine the remaining ingredients in the same frying pan, and heat over medium high heat until boiling. Lower the heat to medium low and add the chicken back to the pan, cover and continue to cook for 25 minutes, turning and basting chicken often. Remove the lid and allow to simmer for another 20 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
Serve over cooked rice.
