  • 6 chicken thighs, skinned and visible fat removed
  • 1/2 cup apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup (I use Hunt's)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, optional
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Sesame seeds for garnish, optional



Step 1

In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the apple juice, ketchup, vinegar, ginger, garlic, brown sugar, granulated sugar, soy sauce, water, black pepper and crushed red peppers to taste. (Do not add any salt since soy sauce is plenty salty.) Set aside.

Heat a large skillet (that has a cover) over medium-high heat; when hot, add the olive oil and smear around with the back of a spoon to coat the bottom of the skillet evenly. Add chicken thighs; cover skillet and lightly brown on both sides. Drain off any fat off, if needed. Add the bowl of sauce to the chicken and cook, uncovered, until sauce is reduced and thickened and chicken is done, basting and flipping chicken frequently.

Garnish if desired with sesame seeds and serve hot with fried, white, or brown rice. (Shown with vegetable fried rice from the nearby Chinese restaurant).
