A devilishly delicious soy glazed chicken will be waiting for you when you get home and with a 5 minute stir fry of fresh crisp veggies your dinner table will be surrounded by smiling faces. There’s always time to eat healthy especially with this foolproof recipe.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons Asian fish sauce
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • ¾ pound snow peas, trimmed
  • 2 heads baby bok choy, leaves separated
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 4 scallions, cut into 2-inch lengths
  • 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • black pepper and salt to taste

Directions:

  1. In a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker, mix together the sugar, soy sauce, lemon juice, fish sauce, ginger, and crushed red pepper. Add the chicken and turn to coat.
  2. Cover and cook until the chicken is tender, on high for 4 to 5 hours.
  3. Twenty minutes before serving, cook the rice according to the package directions.
  4. Transfer the chicken to a plate. Pour the cooking liquid into a large skillet and boil until slightly thickened, 4 to 5 minutes.
  5. Heat the oil in a second large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the snow peas, bok choy, bell pepper, scallions, and garlic and cook, tossing frequently, until the vegetables are tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and black pepper. Serve with the chicken; drizzle with the cooking liquid.
