Ingredients

  • 4-6 boneless chicken thighs OR 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded to even thickness
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
  • fresh thyme and cracked black pepper, for garnish (optional)
  • steamed white rice, for serving (optional)
  • Sauce

  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Instructions

  • Combine all sauce ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Taste, and add salt and pepper if needed. 
  • Transfer 1/2 of the sauce to a large ziplock bag along with the chicken, seal, and chill for 30 minutes to an hour. Cover remaining sauce and set aside while chicken marinates.
  • Drizzle a large pan or skillet with a bit of oil. Use tongs to transfer chicken to pan (discard bag and marinade). Cook chicken for 5-7 minutes over medium heat until browned, then flip. Add tomatoes to pan and continue to cook until chicken is cooked through completely.
  • Drizzle reserved sauce over chicken and tomatoes and cook 1-2 minutes longer until heated through. Garnish with black pepper and fresh thyme if desired and serve alone or over steamed white rice.
