It’s a little sweet and a little salty and the whole family is sure to enjoy it. Add some broccoli the last few minutes to boost the nutritional value, add some crunch and color, and really make this a one pot meal. To simplify this meal even more, use boil in a bag rice.

Recipe Tips:

  • Chicken thighs can be used instead of chicken breasts.
  • Leftovers will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. Reheat in microwave.
  • Can be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then reheat in the microwave.
