Sweet & Spicy Braised Chicken – Salt-Free Sugar-Free Magic Seasoning Blends™


Makes 4 servings


4 chicken thighs, bone-in and skin-on
2 tablespoons + 2 teaspoons Salt-Free Sugar-Free® Sweet & Spicy Seasoning, in all
1 tablespoon canola or olive oil
8 cloves smashed garlic
½ cup julienned red onion
⅓ cup julienned red bell pepper
⅓ cup julienned yellow bell pepper
⅓ cup julienned green bell pepper
⅓ cup julienned celery
3 tablespoons dry white wine
½ cup unsalted chicken stock
1 teaspoon Magic Pepper Sauce®
½ teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
¾ teaspoon sesame oil
2 teaspoons honey (optional)

How To Prepare

Preheat oven to 350°F. Season chicken thighs with 1 tablespoon of Sweet & Spicy and place skin side down in a sauté pan over medium heat. Cook until the skin is very crisp, being careful not to burn the seasoning (lower the heat if necessary). Once the skin is crisp and brown, flip the thigh and cook for another 5 minutes. Remove and reserve thighs. Add oil to the pan and increase the heat to medium high. Add the garlic, onions, bell peppers, and celery. Cook until the vegetables are browned, then add the white wine. Reduce until only about ⅓ of the liquid remains. Add the remaining seasoning, the chicken stock, Magic Pepper Sauce®, Worcestershire sauce, sesame oil and honey, and bring to a boil. Add the thighs back to the pan, skin side up, and place in oven to cook for 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°F. Remove from oven and serve hot with your favorite side.
