Supper tonight


6-8 chicken thighs, skin on
5 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup green onion, chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon sesame oil
5 tablespoons water
Xanthan gum, optional Place the chicken pieces in a gallon size ziploc bag. Mix the remaining ingredients, except the xanthan gum, in a small bowl. Pour the marinade into the bag with the chicken. Close the bag and knead gently to coat all of the chicken pieces. Place in a shallow pan, just in case the bag leaks. Put in the refrigerator and marinate at least 1 hour, turning the bag over occasionally. Dump the entire contents of the bag into a 9x13" glass baking pan. Arrange the thighs skin side up. Bake at 425º for 35-40 minutes until the meat is done. Remove the chicken from the baking pan to a serving platter and keep warm. Skim most of the fat off the juices remaining in the pan and pour into a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and lightly sprinkle the xanthan over the liquid while whisking briskly. Be careful not to let it get too thick. Stop before you think it's thick enough or you'll get glue. Serve the sauce over chicken. The unthickened pan juices can also be served over the chicken and are very tasty over Fried "Rice". Makes 6-8 servings

Girl this sound so good I got up and went and took chicken quarters out of the freezer... Yummo!

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
