A great tasting chicken meal for pennies and most of the ingredients are right there in your cupboard already.
4-5 cloves garlic minced
1 yellow onion sliced thin
garlic into maple syrup, soy sauce, mayonnaise, and vinegar until
marinade is thoroughly combined.
NOTE anytime you have to measure a sticky syrup, spray the measuring spoon first, and have a damp paper towel ready to wipe off the bottle neck before replacing the cap.
- Transfer chicken thighs to zipper bags (if using frozen be sure to take out the wax paper.) Spoon marinade over chicken; seal and mix with fingers until coated. Refrigerate about 3 hours; if preferred a quicker method is to leave them on the counter top sealed in the bag for an hour.
- let stand about 30 minutes at room temperature. Pre heat oven to 400 degrees
- Spray a baking dish and lay a bed of the onion slices. Place the chicken pieces on this. Slide into the oven for 45 – 55 minutes on 400°. Super juicy, very good flavor! Cooking skin side down first allows the chicken to become firm on that side before flipping over.
- Check with thermometer for 150 degrees.Change oven to broiler on HIGH Let the chicken finish cooking under the broiler (about 5-7 minutes) The higher heat will react with sugars in the marinade and produce the flavor this dish is noted for.
chicken to a platter, let rest for 5 minutes, and serve.
*A medium frozen chicken thigh contains 252mg sodium. This is injected as “chicken stock” to make it juicier.
Served this with warmed up green beans and some sauteed broccoli with cherry tomatoes.
What a beautiful meal!
Our music tonight:
Serving my Master Indy
Except the very young
nor felt the fire on the lips
electricity on tongue.
If you have lived a little bit
You've heard your love song sung.
To you who know the score.
Remember now that sweetest past
When hearts first tried to soar.
Old joys are brought to mind
We'll let them start
to warm our heart
As lost beloveds may.
Our cups in hand, think back with me
let time just fade away.
Remembered love is waiting
in our brief yesterday.
