Asian Sweet And Spicy Sticky Chicken

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1-2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 5-6 bone-in or boneless chicken thighs skin on or removed
  • 2/3 cup water or chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/4 cup orange juice (freshly squeezed is best if you can)
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1-2 tsp Asian Chili Garlic sauce
  • 2 Tbsp white or rice vinegar
  • For garnish: Sliced green onions, sesame seeds and orange zest


In a bowl, combine the water/broth, brown sugar, orange juice, soy sauce, Asian Chili Garlic sauce and vinegar. Stir to combine. Set aside.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Dry chicken thighs and season with a bit of salt and pepper. Place in hot skillet, skin-side down if using skin-on, and cook until golden brown, about 8-10 minutes. Flip and cook the other side for another 8 minutes or so. Remove chicken to a plate and discard any oil/fat in the pan.
Add sauce to pan and bring to a light boil. Return chicken to pan and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook, flipping chicken occasionally, until cooked through and sauce thickens and becomes syrupy, about 30-35 minutes.
Serve garnished with sesame seeds, sliced green onions and orange zest. Nice with rice.
