For the Spicy Thai Sauce:
- ½ cup Thai style chili sauce
- ½ cup water or chicken broth
- ¼ cup Wholesome!® Organic Blue Agave
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 2 tbsp rice vinegar
- 2 tblsp lime juice
- 2 tbsp Wholesome!® Organic Light Brown Sugar
- 1 clove garlic, minced
For the Chicken:
- 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 2 cups uncooked quinoa
- chopped peanuts, cilantro, and chili flakes for topping
1. To prepare the sauce, whisk all the sauce ingredients together. Marinate the chicken with about ½ cup sauce. Bring the remaining sauce to a boil over medium heat. Simmer for 30 minutes while it reduces and thickens.
2. Cook the quinoa according to package instructions.
3. In a bowl, marinate the chicken with ½ cup sauce. Refrigerate the marinate and let it all hang out for 30 minutes or so, while the sauce thickens. Shake off excess marinade and transfer to a hot grill pan or skillet. Cook the chicken for a few minutes on each side, until no longer pink, brushing periodically with the thickened sauce.
4. Plate the quinoa on a large platter and top with the chicken. Brush the extra sauce on the chicken pieces. Sprinkle with cilantro, peanuts, and chili flakes and serve.
