Amazingly good. I loved the spice from the Thai sweet chili sauce and the rice. I combined everything together along with sprouts and it was soooo good. I marinated only for one hour but cooked them on the stove top (it was been so hot here) then poured any juices left in the pan over chicken and rice. Quick and tasty meal.
Heaven!!!!!!!! I made this for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game to go along with your recipe Thai Sweet Chili Sauce #457035 (which I made for New Kids on the Block tag game) and ohhh soooooo yummmmmmy. I did use boneless chicken thighs which DH loves and followed the rest of the instructions. I marinated the thighs for about 4 to 4 1/2 hours. Definately going into my Favorites of 2011. Thank you for submitting another great recipe!
I have to apologize first...I forgot to sprinkle the green onions before taking the pic! They add so much taste and color, do not forget them! (We added them to it after we sat down to eat....once I jumped up from my chair to grab them :) ) This recipe is for the fire eaters amongst us.....I am one of them. gailanng has now gotten me addicted to sriracha sauce....so much so that I now have two versions....one with extra garlic, and one without. The rice is beautiful, and the rice vinegar helps offset the heat of the delicious chicken. I marinated for 6 hours, because I ended up having to work late and it couldn't be helped. I don't think it hurt the taste at all! Thanks for sharing!! Made for Holiday tag.
