    ajaneck's Note:

    Not your typical chicken recipe! If you are tired of cooking the same old chicken recipes -- try this one ! This one is from "Joy". It is sophisticated and extremely flavourful. I use chicken thighs. I find them to have the most robust flavour of all chicken parts. The sauce is outstanding if you add some chilies and you will likely have some left over (it is great for a quick pasta dinner the next night). I am a novice cook and this dish really made me feel like a pro !

      ZeRic- Now that you mention it, I did add a healthy dollop of thai garlic chili sauce when I made this dish. The stuff is potent ! Thanks for reminding people to jazz up the sauce :-) asj

      the main part of the recipe turned out delicious. however, the sauce left something to be desired. after simmering for ten minutes, it only tasted liike boiled tomatoes. i added a ton of garlic powder, pepper, celery seeds, teriyaki sauce, and some cheese to make the sauce edible to me. i am not a big tomatoe fan.
