This is a great recipe from Family Circle April 2007 issue. I serve it with fried rice and sugar snaps.

Excellent! And easy! We really enjoyed this chicken dish and I'll be making it again. I used 12 boneless skinless chicken thighs with the same amounts of the other ingredients and it worked very well. I also slightly reduced the amount of sugar. The heat from the red pepper flakes was just right...a bit of zing but not hot. Thank you, Chill!
