Didn't have a claypot so I cooked it in my LeCrueset. Delicious!
Delicious. I forgot about putting in the shiitake mushrooms with 20 mts to do and added them with all the other ingredients. I also added some minced up ginger. They ('shrooms)absorbed the sauce and were wonderful. I also cooked it in the clay pot for 1 hour at 425 degrees and then removed the lid for another 10 mts. I left the skin on the thighs. Who doesn't love crispy chicken skin. Finally I garnished it with chopped up cilantro. I'll do this one on a regular basis
Hi Daydream, I was just about to post this recipe, then I realised I didn't need to! How scrumptious is this chicken, it just melts in your mouth. I halved the recipe, used frozen thighs and omitted the marinating step, so they went straight from the freezer to the oven. I added a bit of extra time in the pot to account for this. I was out of baby bok choy, so instead I used some spinach and green beans. I also left out the lemongrass and don't have a clay pot, just used an earthenware casserole. I noted in the AWW Great Asian Food book, where I found this recipe, that the chicken can be frozen for up to a month at the end of step 3 which is just so convenient! This is a definite keeper. I can't wait to make it again! Maybe tomorrow.
This was great! I didn't have chicken stock so I used duck stock instead. It's simple but really flavorful.
