Whats for Dinner Sunday, December 18th?

Well we've already had ours. I requested some help on what to do with 6 chicken thighs on the chicken forum and jMediger really came through. Here is what we had:

SWEET & SOUR WINGS (or thighs ... )
Dip in egg - then flour
Brown on each side
Place in single layer in greased baking dish

SAUCE....
3/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Pineapple Juice
1/4 Cup White Vinegar
3/4 Cup Ketchup
1 tsp Soy Sauce
1 1/2 tsp salt

Combine all in sauce pan and bring to soft boil.
Spread over chicken wings and top with crushed pineapple if you like.
Cover and bake for 40 - 45 min. @ 350.

I usually let the chicken wings set after I dip them while I do the sauce. The batter seems to stay better when I brown them.

Doubled, this will cover about 3 lbs of wings that have been halved (wing and "drummie" separated) so I would think the single recipe would cover your 6 thighs (about 1 lb?).

Just one of many thoughts I'm sure you'll get today!



First of all thanks to everyone who responded. You've given me some wonderful recipes to try out.

jMediger.....I tried your recipe and its definetly one we'll be having time and time again......it was delicious and I'm not real fond of sweet and sour. I did a few additional things though. I added some freshly ground black pepper (abt. 15 grinds) to the sauce and put salt and pepper in the egg mixture and in the flour mixture. I browned the chicken in a combination of veg. oil and EVOO. Oh and I used the pineapple juice that was in a small can of sliced pineapple....it was exactly 1/4 cup. It took 50 minutes in my oven to cook to the recommended temp for chicken.
I cooked up some white rice in chicken broth and added some salt and the greens of the scallions. Sent DH to the chinese resturant to grab some egg rolls.
I'm going to try adding a few red chili peppers next time as the recipe reminded me of General Tso's Chicken although it was on the sweet and sour side. I think all it would need is the red chilis to accomplish it.
Thanks a bunch! This is def. a TNT recipe that I recommend to others to try.

SizzlininIN, your dinner sounds yummy, especially the sauce. I love sweet and sour sauce. I am having Beef Burgundy with Egg Noodles. I will be using whole wheat egg noodles. Not sure what sides to have yet. I was thinking about steaming some broccoli.

P.S. I know that it is a fairly simple recipe, but I have never made Beef Burgundy before, so it should be fun to try a new recipe.

All I know is we are having nothing sweet. Finished making the cookies for the neighbors this morning and had them delivered this afternoon.

Of course we had to eat the corner pieces that turned out too crumbly and dry. And had to sample the fudge to make sure it was OK.

PeppA bought the fixings for my Clam Chowder. She wants to have enough left over to take to work the next day. We have a really hard time saving enough to have leftovers; it's just that good!

Sizz, if you run a search on "Chicken Thighs" cross-referenced with my handle, you should find a couple posts totalling about 30 different recipes.
