Recipe Wednesday

Recipe Wednesday??? I think I will try to post recipes on Wednesdays to share with you. I am one of those people that don't really measure my ingredients, but because I am sharing a recipe I will do my best to measure. Nothing like food not coming out right when you try to make it for your family following someone else's recipe. If I don't measure something, I will let you know how to adjust it.

Up first is my favorite 3 ingredient recipe. You will have to buy some sauces already made but it is so good. I love taking out my crockpot for Sunday dinners and this one is so quick and easy to put together.
Here goes.

Chicken in Hoisin and Habanero Sauce


1 - 5-6 lbs. package chicken thighs, remove the skin & excess fat
1 cup hoisin sauce
1 cup roasted habanero & pineapple sauce (Costco)
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
Cooked rice

These are the brands of sauces I used. Do not buy the hoisin sauce in a small jar. It does not taste the same.

1. Place chicken thighs in a large crockpot. It doesn't have to be a single layer. 
2. In a medium bowl, mix together the sauces and cornstarch. Pour over the chicken. Stir it up a bit to coat the chicken pieces.
3. Turn crockpot on high and cook for 3 1/2 hours. 

I have cooked this for 4 hours because sometimes we get home from church later than normal and the chicken is still tender. The cornstarch makes the sauce nice and thick, perfect to go over rice.
