Whoops. Late to the party today. It's been a long week. Here's a good, easy recipe for all you Star Trek fans out there. Enjoy!
Spicy Teriyaki Tribbles
2-3 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
1/4 c. soy sauce
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. water
1 T. siracha or tabasco sauce (or leave it out if you want the mild version)
1 t. ground ginger
1 t. garlic powder OR 2-3 large cloves fresh garlic, minced
1/4 c. finely minced onion
Dump the chicken in a large crockpot.
Mix together the soy sauce, brown sugar, water, and siracha. Don't worry if it has lumps, you're mostly trying to spread the heat of the chili sauce out. Stir in the ginger, garlic, and onion. Pour it over the chicken.
Cook on high 3-4 hours or low 6-8 hours until very tender.
Serve with gakh, if you have it, or rice.
If you want to use regular chicken thighs, it's fairly easy to skin and debone them. If deboning scares you, just leave the bone in. Who says tribbles don't have a skeleton?
Peel off the skin and discard. It adds a lot of fat and doesn't cook well in the crockpot.
Slice each thigh lengthwise to get to the bone. Pull out the bone and discard. Remove any lumps of fat and discard. Roll the thigh back into the same approximate shape.
