Now you can get the great flavor or restaurant spareribs at home, with chicken. What an exciting change of pace.

What You'll Need

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 8 chicken thighs, skinned
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon water
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

What to Do

  1. In a nonstick skillet, heat oil until moderately hot. Add chicken and lightly brown on all sides for about 6 to 7 minutes, turning frequently.

  2. In a large bowl, combine the 1/2 cup water, soy sauce, light brown sugar, apple juice, ketchup, cider vinegar, garlic, red pepper and ginger; add to chicken. Bring to a boil, cover, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
