Chicken Spareribs

Monday, June 10, 2013

Money-saving chicken thighs are the key to this twist on traditional Chinese pork spareribs.

Our Chicken Spareribs recipe packs all the taste of that Asian sauce yet thanks to the chicken, is a bit lower in fat.

Serves: 4

Cooking Time: 25 min

What You'll Need:

- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
- 3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon water
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons ketchup
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon chopped garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch

What to do:

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add chicken and brown on all sides, 5 to 7 minutes.

In a medium bowl, combine 3/4 cup water, the soy sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, garlic, and ginger; stir into chicken.

Bring to a boil, cover, then reduce heat to low and simmer 15 minutes, turning occasionally.

In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and remaining water. Stir into chicken and cook until sauce has thickened. Serve immediately.
