You can never go wrong with a simple baked chicken recipe. It’s crowd pleasing and healthy. Serve it with some rice, a side salad, or whatever else you have on hand.

  • 2 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons rice or cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 8 chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/4 cup cooking wine
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • White Rice, cooked

Place an oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the broiler. In a small bowl, mix the garlic, chicken stock, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Put the chicken thighs in a baking dish, skin side down, and pour the sauce over them. Set the dish on the rack and broil for 15 minutes. Turn the thighs and broil for about 10 minutes longer, or until the skin is crisp and the chicken is cooked through. Transfer to a platter and skim the fat off the sauce.

Add the wine to the baking dish and broil until the wine sizzles. Stir well and pour the sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle with the cilantro and scallion and serve at once. Serve on a bed of white rice.
