i never get tired of another new chicken recipe. i have tried hundreds over the years and usually fall back on some favorites. this recipe is one that i will make again, as the sticky orange glaze is quite tasty. the recipe comes from everyday food, Martha Stewart’s magazine that recently was discontinued. the magazine was published in pocket-sized format and was truly one of my all-time favorite reads. the recipes are quick, easy and are perfect for everyday eating — nothing fussy, nothing fancy, just down to earth basics.
i will miss the publication, however; one of the chefs has now posted online recipes, which can be followed through you tube.
this online format is wonderful as the prep time is quick and the recipe comes together in minutes. i truly enjoy Sarah Carey and her recipe commentary. as usual, i do alter the recipes a bit to fit our taste and quantity of servings. so, here is how i made the dish.
orange glazed chicken thighs: preheat the oven to 400 degrees and season four chicken thighs with salt and pepper. arrange in a ceramic dish and bake for one hour.
meanwhile in a saucepan on the stove, combine 1 teaspoon salt, 1 cup orange juice concentrate, 1 cup ketchup, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 4 teaspoons white wine vinegar, 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce, and 2 teaspoons sweet chili sauce. Simmer on the stove until the mixture thickens, which will be nearly 20 minutes.
When the chicken has finished the cook time, transfer the chicken to a bowl and toss in the glaze. Remove the fat from the ceramic dish and place the chicken back in the dish and broil until the sauce is bubbling and brown. This step takes about 4 minutes.
Serve with a side salad or green vegetable.
