I must say this has been the best December day that I have gotten to experience in a long time. The temps were in the 70’s and could have done without the wind, but the day was still sunny and fabulous! I figure it’ll be back in the 30’s by next week. I still love winter! I decided that since I was going shopping with some friends today that I wanted to make a dinner that could use some decent marinating time and I found this recipe at www.cookbookjunkie.blogspot.com. I changed it up a little bit and it was definitely worth it. The recipe originally called for broiling but I decided to just bake it in the oven. It turned out AMAZING and full of flavor! I can’t wait for you to try it! ENJOY!
Makes: 4 servings
Here’s what you’ll need:
3/4 cup molasses
1/3 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp black pepper
1 1/2-2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
Pre heat oven 350 degrees and then combine first 6 ingredients in a zip-lock (1 gallon) freezer/storage bag…(I put the bag into a glass bowl, lay top of bag over the rim of the glass and add the ingredients…
Add chicken to marinade, cover and seal…
Chill in the fridge for approximately 6-8 hours, flipping the bag over occasionally. Remove chicken from marinade and lay out on a baking sheet…
Place the chicken thighs in pre heated oven for 20-25 minutes. Chicken should register 165 degrees (firm to the touch). Sprinkle with a little dollop of fresh parsley. ENJOY!
