Asian Glazed Chicken

Holy smokes. This was delicious. Michael declared it my best meal of 2010.
Asian Glazed Chicken
[Original Recipe from]
  • 4 chicken thighs, boneless, skinless
  • Pam spray oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 t. Sriracha (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 t. ginger, grated
  • 1 T. scallions, chopped
  • 1/2 t. sesame seeds
  1. Brown the chicken over high heat in a large, heavy saucepan lightly sprayed with Pam. About 3-4 minutes. It doesn't need to be cooked- just browned.
  2. Combine the water, sriracha, balsamic, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, and ginger in a small bowl. Pour over the browned chicken. Bring the sauce to a boil, then reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Remove the cover, bring the sauce to a boil, and allow it to reduce down for 8-10 minutes on medium-high heat. Watch the sauce carefully so it doesn't burn, and turn the chicken occasionally. 
  4. Once the sauce has reduced down (will be about the consistency of maple syrup), transfer the chicken to a platter, drizzle with the sauce, and top with the sesame seeds and scallions.
