Just in case getting my kids high on sugar wasn’t impressive enough, I have another great parenting “No-No” to brag about – I lie to them. Well, technically, it’s not quite lying; it’s more of manipulating… as long as you are paying attention to the details.
Anyways, here is a “pork” dish that has high success rating among my kids.
- 1.5 tsp sugar
- 0.5 tsp black pepper
- 1.5 tbs soy sauce
- 1.5 tbs fish sauce
- 1.5 tbs canola oil
- 4-5 garlic cloves, minced
- 2.5 lbs chicken thighs
This is a great make-ahead meal. In fact, I just froze 3 extra batches.
Place the first 6 ingredients in a zip lock bag and mix them well. Add chicken thighs. If freezing, lay flat in the freezer for up to 3 months; otherwise let marinate in the fridge for 12-24 hours.
SERVING DAY INSTRUCTIONS:
If the chicken was frozen, thaw before cooking.
Preheat the broiler to 500 F. Grease broiling pan with cooking spray. Place chicken thighs on it and broil for 5 minutes. Turn the pieces and broil for another 5 minutes.
Sprinkle with cilantro and/or green onions. Serve over rice with Vietnamese soy sauce and fresh cucumber.
