Cook the Books Friday: Sweet Chili Chicken Thighs

I always, always cook with the group, but rarely do I get around to posting in a timely manner. Know that this dinner was enjoyed on a really cold Saturday night when my oldest child was playing board games and eating pizza at a friend’s house, and the little one feasted on chicken nuggets and canned fruit while I hovered at the stove.

Dish Count: 13

The chicken cooked exactly as promised, which is one of the things I love most about Dorie: she is spot on in her directions.  It was sweet and spicy at the same time, and delicious over riced cauliflower. And it was nearly as simple as she promised: only 13 dirty dishes in the sink when I sat down to eat!

Even better, though, were the leftovers.  My whole family enjoyed the chicken and leftover sauce mixed into dollar-store Ramen noodles Monday night, with grocery-store-salad-bar vegetables like sliced mushrooms, broccoli and baby corn.
