The inspiration from this recipe came from Skinnytaste, which is probably one of my favorite food blogs! They have tons of Weight Watchers friendly recipes, that are almost always delicious. This came from the Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs. Mine is slightly different, and probably has a few more calories from the flour that I added at the end to thicken the sauce. (Their method just did not work!)
By the way, the really fantastic part about this recipe is that is cost less than $3/per serving! Honestly, it cost me quite a bit less because I already had most of the ingredients on hand.
Here's the ingredients:
1 package of 4 chicken thighs, skin removed
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 cup water
1 tsp sriacha sauce
3 Tbsp honey (or agave nectar)
2 Tbsp garlic, minced
2 tsp coconut oil
1 tsp flour and 2 tsp cold water
In a large pan, melt coconut oil. On a medium high temperature, place chicken, skin removed in pan, and cook on each side for about 4-5 minutes. Just enough to crisp it up. In another bowl, mix balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, water, sriacha sauce, honey and garlic. Pour over chicken and once it comes to a boil (which won't take long), reduce to a simmer on low. Let it sit covered for 20 minutes.
After twenty minutes, take off the cover, and bring back up to high. By this point, the soy sauce mixture will be getting a little thicker. Let it boil, and turn the chicken often, so it gets coated. After about 5 minutes on high, after the sauce has had a chance to reduce a bit, add the flour and water that you have mixed together. (Make sure there are no clumps before you do.) Once you add the flour, stir frequently. It will become a much thicker sauce almost instantly. Once it's thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, it's done!
