Cuisine: Asian and American Fusion
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 8 skinless, boneless chicken thighs, chopped into 1-inch chunks
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 cup barbecue sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray’s Barbecue Sauce)
Here's how to make it:
- In a large sauté pan on low heat, add the olive oil, garlic, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar and barbecue sauce. Stir to combine.
- Add the chicken chunks. Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and allow to simmer until chicken is cooked. The sauce will be even more delicious once the chicken juices have been included.
- Serve over rice. Add a few stir-fried or baked vegetables, if desired. (I used baked zucchini.)
