Recipe

Last week I warned you that there night be a boatload of broiled chicken thigh recipes coming your way after sharing these yummy Broiled Asian Chicken Thighs. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite ways to make a quick meal and giving I faced some rain this weekend, I went for the broiler again instead of the grill. These chicken thighs only take about 10 minutes to cook, but you will need some advanced planning for the marinade. It’s a simple homemade barbecue sauce that’s spiced up with some Sriracha. After marinating, the sauce is boiled to create a savory dipping sauce to serve along with the chicken. Easy and sure to please.
