I adopted this recipe from the Recipezaar account because I am always on the lookout for quick and easy meals. The original introduction was: "A budget recipe that’s better than take-out and just as easy. Serve these fragrant chicken thighs over rice."

We loved this. I had no idea such wonderful flavors could come out of only soy sauce and onions. Not to mention a cheaper piece of meat. This chicken is simply wonderful. Thanks!
