Hot & Zesty Chicken


My buddy makes this a lot, but he cannot remember where the recipe came from.

10 Chicken Breasts or Thighs (bone in)
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
Sesame Seeds
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper (add more if you like it hotter)
1/8 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Cloves
2 tbsp Soy Sauce
2 tbsp Cider Vinegar or Red Wine Vinegar
1 tbsp Sherry
3/4 cup water
2 tbsp Cornstarch

Bake chicken in 12” Dutch oven for 45-50 minutes turning once until done and browned.

While chicken is cooking mix together remaining ingredients except cornstarch. Bring to a boil. Mix enough water with cornstarch to make slurry then pour into boiling mixture. Stir until thickened. Spoon the sauce over chicken during the last 10 minutes of cooking. Sprinkler the Sesame Seeds over chicken right before serving.

When ever I get in a rut and don’t know what to eat, I always go for something spicy like this dish to put me back on track.
