Ingredients

4
boneless skinless chicken thighs (breast can be used as well)
1/3 c
soy sauce
1/3 c
brown sugar
1/2 c
water
1 clove
garlic
1 Tbsp
ketchup
1 Tbsp
onion powder
1/4 c
apple juice
1 tsp
red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp
cornstarch
2 Tbsp
water
brown or white rice

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350.
Brown chicken in a medium skillet (I use cast iron) until cooked through but don't over cook. Remove from heat. Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl and pour over the chicken.
2Place the skillet in the oven and bake for 30 minutes, stirring the sauce every 10 minutes. In the mean time, whisk together the cornstarch and water.
3Remove from oven, take the chicken out and set aside, bring the sauce up to a simmer and whisk in the cornstarch mixture until thick. Place the chicken back in the skillet until warm, slice and serve over rice.
4NOTE: You can also use bone in chicken (thighs, legs and breasts are excellent).
