Chicken Thighs Glazed with Orange-Thyme-Cumin Sauce


Very easy to prepare and packed with fairly strong Asian style sweet-sour flavor. Perhaps a bit much on the vinegar, would be good with plain white rice to balance things out.

½ cup white wine
¼ cup red wine vinegar
¼ cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
3 tablespoons soy sauce, sodium reduced
2 tablespoons thyme

1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon cumin

Remove the skin and the surface layer of fat from the thighs.

In a large nonstick skillet, combine the sauce ingredients, including the jalapeno.

Over medium-high heat, bring the mixture to a boil, then add the chicken (bones up).

Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

Remove the cover, turn the chicken pieces over, raise the heat to medium and cook until the liquid is evaporated and the chicken is glazed, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Adjust heat as necessary.

PanTry: Shoyu, a Japanese soy sauce that is lower in salt.

Canned jalapeno pepper.

1 tablespoon of garlic chives, snipped instead of clove garlic.
