Today’s Menu: Teriyaki Chicken Thighs and Multi Grain Medley

 

 

Teriyaki Chicken Thighs 006

Well not too bad out there today, sunny but still cold. Better weather days are moving in for the rest of the week they say. A lot of sunshine and highs in the 40’s, sure beats a wind chill below zero! Stayed up late watching The Ohio State Buckeyes win the National Title, on the cell with best friend out in Arizona for most of it! Did a load of laundry and tidy up around the place. For dinner tonight a new recipe, Teriyaki Chicken Thighs and Multi Grain Medley.

 

 
Another recipe from the Simple and Delicious – Taste of Home Magazine. The latest issue had quite a few recipes I want to try. So tonight it’s Teriyaki Chicken Thighs and Multi Grain Medley. To prep it I’ll need the following; 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, 1/4 cup and 2 Tbsp Splenda Sugar, 34 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce, 1/3 cup cider vinegar, 1 garlic clove (minced), 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 4 teaspoons cornstarch, and 4 teaspoons cold water. I was just cooking for myself tonight so I only used 1/4 of the amount of the ingredients, I made 2 Chicken Thighs.

 

 

 

 

Place the chicken in a 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, ginger and Minute Multi Grain Medleypepper; pour over chicken. Cook, covered, on low 4-5 hours or until chicken is tender. Remove the chicken to a serving platter; keep warm. Transfer cooking juices to a small saucepan; skim fat. Bring cooking juices to a boil. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and cold water until smooth; stir into cooking juices. Return to a boil; cook and stir 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with chicken. Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner! This turned out absolutely delicious! The Chicken Thighs were moist and tender and just bursting with that Teriyaki and spices flavor! Great addition by boiling the cooking juices and thickening it to a sauce for the Chicken. A “Keeper Recipe”, for sure! Served it on a bed of Minute Multi Grain Medley. I love the Multi Grain, It has Brown Rice, Thai Red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! Plus it’s only 160 calories and 31 net carbs per serving, which isn’t bad for a Grain Dish. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

Minute Multi-Grain MedleyMinute Rice

* Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten-free 100% whole grains and is ready in only 10 minutes. The four grains include:
* Brown Rice – usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
* Thai Red Rice – also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
* Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
* Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds. It cooks up light and fluffy. The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
This quick cooking whole grain medley is pre-portioned in 4 separate bags for ease of preparation and has a slightly chewy, nutty flavor. Perfect for any meal, even as a wholesome start to the day, this medley is great when eaten with a little olive oil and salt, cooked in meat/vegetable broths or fruit juices. Make Minute® Multi-Grain Medley a versatile recipe staple for your pantry.

 

Directions
1 -Do NOT use the bag for cooking. COMBINE water and contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water.
2 – BRING to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed.
3 – REMOVE from heat. Fluff with fork.
