Bourbon Brown Sugar Chicken Thighs With Chick Peas Over Rice

Pin It Bourbon Brown Sugar Chicken Thighs With Chick Peas Over Rice

Bourbon Brown Sugar Chicken Thighs With Chick Peas Over Rice
Last week, Allen bought a bottle of Guy Fieri Bourbon Brown Sugar Sweet & Sticky Barbeque Sauce for some chicken wings he brought to grill for a family BBQ. We had enough left in the bottle so I used them with chicken thighs for dinner last night. This meal was full of flavor and not much work so give it a try. The pic of Guy's BBQ sauce is from an older post when we first purchased his sauce line. We have gone through about 5 bottles of this sauce and our local Stop & Shop now carries it so we do not have to order it online anymore. I used curled parsley from Allen's indoor herb garden, but you can use cilantro instead.  If you use cilantro in the chick peas and use my spice mix, omit the cilantro powder.

Chicken Thighs
Ingredients
4 Chicken Thighs (skin on, bone in)
1 cup Guy Fieri Bourbon Brown Sugar Sweet & Sticky Barbeque Sauce
1 Onion
Kosher Salt
Black Pepper
Vegetable Oil
2 tablespoons Curled Parsley

Directions
Chop onion in 4 quarters.

Wash chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Season chicken thighs on both sides with kosher salt and black pepper.

Place thighs in ziplock bag, add onion quarters and BBQ sauce, zip and shake until well blended. Place ziplock bag on plate or dish in fridge.

Marinate for 3-4 hours.

Take out chicken for about 20 minutes before placing in oven to allow it to come to room temperature before cooking.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Coat thin layer of vegetable oil in glass dish.

Place chicken and contents of ziplock bag (onion quarters and BBQ sauce) in a baking dish.

Cook for about 50-55 minutes turning thighs half way.

Chop some curled parsley and sprinkle over thighs before you serve.

Chick Peas
Ingredients
1 15.5 oz. can Goya Low Sodium Chick Peas
1 tablespoon Tomato Paste
1 tablespoon Curled Parsley
Kosher Salt
Whatever spice mix you like (see my spice mix below)

Directions
When the chicken has about 15 minutes left, place chick peas and liquid in pot on medium-low heat.

Add tomato paste and stir well.

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (optional) and stir.

Add your own spice mix or you can try mine:
Take a small glass bowl and add the following spices:
1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Cilantro Powder
1/4 teaspoon Mexican Oregano
1/4 teaspoon Cumin
1/4 teaspoon Ground Chipotle Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper

Combine spices and add to pot, stir well.

After 8 minutes, turn heat to low and simmer for 7 more minutes.

Chop some curled parsley, add and stir well right before you serve.

Serve chick peas over a bed of rice with chicken thighs.

Rice
We use a rice cooker and use White Rice Extra Long Grain.

Season rice with Coarse Himalayan Pink Salt or Kosher Salt if you don't have this on hand.

Enjoy!
