Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Mix chicken broth, soy sauce, vinegar, honey, sugar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes together in a large skillet over medium heat. When mixture starts to sizzle, add chicken and bring to a boil.

  • Turn down the heat and let simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Transfer chicken to a serving platter, leaving remaining sauce in the skillet.

  • Turn heat to high and cook until sauce becomes a thick glaze. Remove from heat and pour over chicken. Sprinkle with green onions and sesame seeds.

I really like the simplicity of making this in one dish--and it tastes pretty good too. I replaced the 1 tsp of red pepper flakes with 1 tsp of Sambal Oelek, and that provided a nice level of heat for us. My one issue is that boiling the sauce down until thickened is delicious, but it doesn't make for much sauce at all. So if I were to do this again, I'd either double the sauce amount, or simply use cornstarch to thicken it. Overall, a nice recipe though. Thank you! Read More

Great recipe with easy clean up! We severed it with steamed rice and broccoli. Next time I will cut the chicken into bite sized pieces. Read More

My husband loved the sweet/sour/spiciness of this dish! In order to keep this an actually "one-skillet dish" I added rice at the same time as the chicken and red bell pepper for color and favor. This dish pairs nicely with Honey Moon Viognier! I made the following changes: *Used 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth (to accommodate cooking the rice *Reduced white sugar to 1 tablespoon *Added 1 cup of uncooked short grain rice *Added 1 red bell pepper chopped *Added 1/3 cup of toasted slivered almonds as a topping for crunch Read More

This was very good and easy to make. I was worried when reducing down the sauce that it was going to burn, but ?it caramelized nicely and coated the chicken perfectly. Definitely will make it again. Read More

The only change I made was to cut the thighs into smaller pieces. This came out better than any takeout I could have gotten! Read More

Difficult to rate this recipe. Probably too much red pepper flakes (and I don’t mind spicy). I could not get the liquid to thicken no matter how long I boiled it. I was afraid the chicken thighs were getting cold. I added onions fo a little sesame oil to sauté before adding sauce mixture. I think a good addition at the same time would be green pepper. I would grate the Ginger instead of chopping it. The Ginger and red pepper flakes were in the bottom of the skillet and didn’t combine well. I served on basmati rice with a side of asparagus. Hubby liked it despite my issues. Read More
