oriental chicken thighs


this is one recipe we make quite often. i found this recipe in taste of home. the original recipe calls for cooking in a skillet on the stove, but i also bake it in the oven. same great tasting end result. i reduce the amount of red pepper flakes because we don't like it too hot. i serve it with rice and vegetables. the baking time may differ depending on the size of the thighs.
