Chicken thighs are often avoided by people looking to cut calories or fat, but they offer a protein packed and lean protein source if you make sure to trim all the fat. They also have a ton of flavor and are more tender then traditional chicken breast. Personally I usually have chicken a few times a week so mixing in dark meat chicken at least once keep things interesting. Today's recipe is extremely easy to prepare and uses a quick homemade teriyaki sauce paired that is baked with the chicken. The recipe calls for brown sugar but you could also use honey, agave, or Stevia instead for a sugar free version.
