# cooking thursday

{ Cooking Thursday - April 14 }


Sorry it's late going up. I feel like I'm always apologizing for this but truly, life is just a little on the crazy side right now.

BTW, this is NOT my recipe, it comes from Lynn's Kitchen Adventures, which I love.  If you haven't checked out her blog you don't know what you're missing.  I've tried many of her recipes and they're always delicious and simple, which is a big bonus for me :)

Slow Cooked Sticky Chicken

Slow Cooked Sticky Chicken

* 3/4 cup brown sugar
* 1/4 cup soy sauce
* 2 tablespoons of minced ginger ( I did not have any ginger, so I used 1 teaspoon of ground ginger)
* 4 cloves of garlic, minced
* 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne or red pepper
* 3 lbs chicken, breast, thighs, legs, etc.
* 1/4 cup water
* 1/4 cup tomato paste

Combine 1/4 cup sugar, 2 tablespoon soy sauce , ginger, garlic, and cayenne pepper.

Brush on chicken and cook under the broiler for about 5 minutes or until chicken is slightly crisp.

But keep in eye on this while it is cooking under the broiler, things can cook quickly when broiling. (You may be tempted to skip the broiling, but it really does help give this a nice sticky and good texture.)

This is how I like serving mine, with a cute little mound of rice. The kids think it's the coolest thing on earth.

Slow Cooked Sticky Chicken

Just scoop the rice into a little bowl or whatever shape you want to use, press it in well, then invert it onto the plate nice and slow. Tada!!! Nothing to it :)

Now drizzle a little of the sauce on top....
