still cookin': teriyaki chicken and rice noodles...

I've been trying to "shop my pantry" lately to come up with some new recipes. 
Tonight I created Teriyaki Chicken Thighs over Rice Noodles. 

The recipe was very simple and only requires a few ingredients -- now, that's my kind of recipe!
You will need:

  • 4-6 boneless skinless chicken thighs 
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2-3 Tbsp. of brown sugar
  • Package of rice noodles
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lime cut in half
  • 1 lime, wedged
  • Handful of spicy peanuts
  • Shredded carrots

In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, brown sugar and garlic. Add the chicken thighs to a crock pot and pour the soy sauce mix over the top. Squeeze the line halves over the chicken and leave the limes in the pot for flavor. Cook on high for two hours and then reduce to low heat for 3-4 more hours, occasionally turning the chicken to coat.

When your chicken is almost done, prepare the rice noodles as the package directs. Remove chicken from the pot. The remaining liquid will be the sauce for your noodles. Then top your chicken and noodles with shredded carrots, spicy peanuts and lime juice.

It was yummy if I do say so myself. Tasty and easy is the name of the game for recipes in my house!
