Asian-Glazed Chicken Thighs
I found this recipe in an old Cooking Light – March 2011 issue. It looked really simple to make and I had all of the ingredients on hand so I made it for dinner. The recipe called for bone-in chicken thighs but my boneless thighs turned out really delicious and tender. The marinade was delicious and made a terrific sauce that my kids especially loved. I really enjoy having such a flavorful and healthy dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes during the week.Asian-Glazed Chicken Thighs: Adapted recipe and photos by For the Love of Cooking.net Original recipe – Cooking Light – March 2011
