More chicken recipes I love are Filipino Adobo ChickenChicken Thighs with Shallots in Red Wine Vinegar, Chicken and Broccoli Stir Fry, and Turmeric Braised Chicken with Golden Beets and Leeks.

I know this is a recipe you’ll be making over and over, it’s that good. You can serve it with brown rice, or for a low carb option try it with Cauliflower “Fried” Rice. Although they take a little time to simmer on the stove, they are super easy to make. I have made this with drumsticks, thighs and even chicken wings. I have even made it in my Instant Pot which cuts the cook time to about 20 minutes! I am providing directions for both skillet or Instant Pot, enjoy!!
