Easy Glazed Chicken Thighs

 

If your family likes chicken, this recipe is a real winner when it comes to easy main dishes. My easy glazed chicken thighs recipe is so simple and delicious with its luscious sauced meat that is so tender it practically melts in your mouth. Imagine a fragrant dark sauce with catsup, soy sauce, molasses, ginger with onion and garlic. You’re probably thinking the catsup has to dominant the flavor like a barbecue sauce. On the contrary, it is harder to detect from how the soy sauce, molasses and ginger seem to team up to perfection.

My guy is known not to hold comments back on dishes I serve when experimenting with a new recipe from the norm. When I presented my glazed chicken thighs to him last night for dinner, I wasn’t sure what his reaction would be. However, he kept raving how much he loved this new dish and wanted me to make it again soon, which is the ultimate high mark of recipe excellence in our house.

Any leftover sauce or chicken can be saved in your refrigerator and used for another recipe. Before I am ready to use it, I scrape the fat that has hardened off because I don’t want to eat that extra fat when combining to a casserole, another sauce or a rice dish along with pieces of chopped chicken. Usually I let my imagination run wild after checking my refrigerator and pantry what I currently have to work with because there are so many sensational food combinations to try.

You could also use drumsticks, but I prefer the thighs because you get more meat than bone. For the price you pay, I think the thighs are a better deal. In my area, the prices are relatively the same so I stick with thighs.

Take care and try my glazed chicken thighs recipe if you get a chance. If you do, I promise you that you will have more time for doing something enjoyable instead of laboring over a hot stove and oven just to make dinner while not shortening yourself of great taste.

I hope that you explore my recipe section with some of my other wonderful chicken recipes.  Two in particular that might want to start with being my Hawaiian crock pot chicken and chicken cacciatore recipes.
