Looking to a quick and easy recipe for some skinless chicken thighs when I found this one. Assembling took just a few minutes and the results were spectacular. Ended with lots of sauce and decided to sprinkle a wee amount of cornstarch in just before mixing in the pineapple chunks and found that gave me a perfect syrupy glaze. The ginger and garlic do a nice job of balancing the sauce so that while sweet, it it not cloyingly so. Thanks!
