Weeknight Wednesday: Sweet To Spicy Apple Glazed Chicken Thighs

Many of the recipes I post out here take some time to prepare, cook or both. As many of us (myself included) do quite a bit of work night cooking, I have decided to occasionally highlight those quick recipes on Wednesdays.

This dish is quick to make but tastes like you spent all day making it.

While it looks like a lot here, most are spices.

Sweet To Spicy Apple Glazed Chicken Thighs


8 skinned chicken thighs
3 tbsp. oil
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. apple jelly
1/2 c. white wine
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tbsp. dried onion flakes
1 garlic cloves, minced
8 whole cloves
1/8 to 1/2 tsp. curry powder see note
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Cherry tomatoes, optional garnish
Green onion tops, optional garnish
Parsley, optional garnish
Cooked rice


Heat oil to medium temperature in large frying pan. In shallow bowl dredge chicken in flour, 1 piece at a time, to coat. Place chicken in pan. Cook, turning, about 10 minutes or until brown on all sides. Remove excess oil from pan. In small saucepan, mix together jelly, wine, lemon juice, onion flakes, garlic cloves, curry powder, salt and pepper. Heat until jelly melts. Pour sauce over chicken. Cover. Simmer, basting occasionally, about 15 minutes. Remove cover and simmer about 5 minutes more or until fork can be inserted in chicken with ease and chicken is glazed. Remove cloves.

Pour chicken and sauce over hot cooked rice on serving platter. Garnish if desired. Makes 4 servings. NOTE: Amount of curry powder determines spiciness. I usually make this dish with 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon for sweet taste with touch of spice, but is also good with 1/2 teaspoon for spicy dish with trace of sweetness.
