My mom gave me this wonderful, sweet, tender, tasty recipe for chicken thighs. A different twist on chicken- wonderful flavor! Pairs well with asian inspired side dishes.


  1. In bowl, toss thighs with five-spice powder and salt. Finely chop green onions (enough to total 2 tbsp.) reserve for garnish. Cut remainder of onions into 1 inch pieces, set aside.
  2. In skillet, heat oil on medium heat. Add thighs and cook 10 minutes (or until browned/no pink), turning once. Transfer to plate.
  3. In drippings left in skillet, medium heat, cook 1 inch onion pieces 4 minutes (lightly browned). Stir in broth, jam, vinegar; heat to boiling.
  4. Reduce heat to medium, put thighs in pan for five-ten minutes or until syrupy. Turn chicken a few times to coat with syrup. Garnish with finely chopped green onions.
  5. Pairs well with asian themed side dishes, rice, vegetables.

Really good! Quick and easy to fix for a weeknight meal. Asian flavor with a punch from the balsamic vinegar. Served with rice and edamame. A great way to use up my plum jam, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
