I’m not chicken!

I just did sticky chicken this week 😀

I used chicken thighs (per the recipe), though I had to manually debone them because I bought them from my local Co-op rather than the butcher (I’d forgotten how much they cost… turns out thighs are less than half as expensive as chicken breasts ^^). This netted me 10 thighs (the recipe as written only calls for 8) so I upped the quantities of ketchup, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and honey in the glaze by 25% apiece and gave the thighs ten minutes longer in the oven than the recipe stated. They came out a tad blackened on top, but that didn’t detract from things at all ^^

The recipe in the book was technically ‘sticky chicken with coleslaw’ but I don’t like coleslaw at ALL so I had my chicken thighs in tortilla wraps with iceberg lettuce and a touch of mayo. Yum yum YUM! The juice from the cooking — consisting of stray glaze/sauce mixing with chicken fat and meat juices which leaked out of the thighs during cooking — didn’t go to waste either. It’s basically dripping, and it goes brilliantly on toast!
