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.

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!
