Epic Sweet and Spicy Dry Rub
In this recipe, the spicy rub is essential. Brown sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper are all included in this recipe. All of these ingredients can be found at most grocery stores.
The seasoning isn’t overly sweet when made with brown sugar. Instead, it blends all of the flavors together. The smokiness of smoked paprika is incredible.
The nicest part about this spice mix is that it can be made in large batches and stored in an airtight container. It’s quite useful.
- Chicken thighs – Skinless boneless chicken thighs are recommended for this dish since they cook at the same time as the glazy sauce.
- Butter and oil – Used to enhance the flavor of the dish, and oil is utilized to raise the butter’s burning point.
- Rosemary – I adore rosemary’s herb flavor.
- Chicken stock – Gives the sauces substance.
- Garlic cloves – I used garlic cloves, which infuse the stock with flavor when boiled with it.
Cooking with chicken thigh is forgiving, which is a good thing. When thighs are cooked for a little longer than chicken breasts, they do not become rubbery and dry.
Cook skinless boneless chicken thighs properly to get the most out of them.
- It’s always better to use a combination of butter and oil. The sauce’s richness comes from the butter, which is kept from burning by the oil.
- Garlic is one of my favorite foods, and I always go a little too far with it. It enhances the flavor of the pan sauce.
- The mix of chicken and rosemary is amazing. It adds a burst of flavor to the dish. If you prefer, thyme or parsley can be used instead.
You can either refrigerate or freeze the cooked chicken thighs as is. To keep them, make sure they’re in an airtight container or a zip-lock bag.
Simply warm them in the microwave or on a pan for 5 minutes after removing them from the refrigerator.
Allow them to thaw until they reach room temperature if they’ve been frozen. Heat it in the microwave or on a skillet.
We won’t need to fry the chicken thighs again, and the sauce will reheat the thighs as well.Print
Frequently Asked Questions
How to get a crispy crust on chicken thighs?
Sear seasoned chicken thighs in butter for about 2-3 minutes for a crispy crust. The boneless chicken thighs should be practically flat on the griddle after pressing with the back of the spatula.
This ensures that the chicken is evenly seared. Then reduce the heat to low and cook for another couple of minutes to ensure the chicken is fully cooked.
Can this be made with Chicken Breast?
The most popular cut of chicken is the breast. It’s more compact and less expensive. Yes, chicken breast can be substituted.
To get a thinner, more consistent fillet, cut the chicken breast lengthwise and adjust the cooking time appropriately.
You’ll need to pound fat slices of chicken breast to get a softer and thinner slice.
Reduce the amount of chicken stock as well, as the sauce may burn before the chicken is done cooking.
Can we use bone-in chicken thigh?
It’s worth noting that bone-in chicken takes longer to cook, and the sauce could burn by then. As a result, this recipe calls for boneless chicken.
However, if you’re using bone-in chicken, the sauce may thicken and burn before the chicken is fully cooked. When the sauce thickens, add extra chicken stock to give the chicken more time to cook while the sauce thickens and produces a coating.
Should you Season chicken thighs before cooking?
Chicken thighs, both boneless and skinless, cook rapidly and have a lot more taste than chicken breasts. The first step is to rub the spice rub and a good amount of salt on both sides of the thigh. The spice rub is a delicious method to boost flavor without adding fat or calories.
