Soy-Glazed Chicken Hot Pot

Author: Canadian Living

Keeping the bone in the chicken makes it moist and flavourful and takes advantage of lower-priced bone-in thighs. Using sodium-reduced chicken stock and soy sauce reduces the sodium level by more than half. Serve over a bed of whole grain rice, along with Bok Choy with Sesame Oil. Bok choy is an excellent source of folate and vitamins A and C and a source of calcium, magnesium, iron and potassium.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 8 skinless chicken thighs (2 lb/1 kg)
  • 1 cup halved mushroom
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 1 yellow pepper chopped
  • 1 green pepper chopped
  • 1 piece gingerroot sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • pinch hot pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup sodium-reduced chicken stock
  • 2 tablespoons sodium-reduced soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • coriander
  • parsley sprig

Method

In shallow Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown chicken, in batches. Remove to plate.

Drain fat from pan. Add mushrooms, onion, yellow pepper, ginger, garlic and hot pepper flakes; cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, 5 minutes.

In small bowl, whisk together chicken stock, soy sauce and granulated sugar; pour into pan, stirring and scraping up any brown bits from bottom of pan.

Return chicken and any accumulated juices to pan; bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover and cook until juices run clear when chicken is pierced, about 20 minutes.

Push chicken to side of pan. Stir 1 tbsp (15 mL) water with cornstarch. Stir into pan and bring to boil; cook, stirring, until sauce is thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir to glaze chicken. Serve garnished with coriander sprigs.
