Recipe by ChrisMc

Here's another recipe with chicken thighs, which are actually considered one of the favorite parts of the chicken in Chinese cooking, as they aren't as dry as the breast. (This recipe isn't particularly Chinese; I'm just going off on tangents.) Enjoy!

This one is very easy. We liked it very much. I used reduced sodium soy sauce, a whole can of low sodium chicken broth, and a whole onion. I froze half, and it reheated beautifully.
