Cookbook Challenge: Trader Joes

A few years ago, a friend who shares my love for all things TJs gave me a cookbook that is entirely recipes made from things that you can find at Trader Joes. If you don't have a Trader Joes near where you live, move immediately and in the mean time go to your local grocery store and buy the substitute for the following ingredients.

This recipe is quick (about 45 start to finish), easy, and super delish. I served it with homemade wheat bread and some sort of rice pilaf from a box.

Hot Toddy Chicken

2 lbs chicken thighs
2 tsp olive oil
1 tube Trader Joe's chicken savory broth concentrate
1/2 c. water
1/2 c orange marmalade
2 Tbs whiskey
1 Tbs honey
pinch of red chili pepper flakes
salt and pepper

1. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper.
2. Heat oil in large saute pan over med high heat and brown chicken on both sides, in batches if needed.
3. Return the chicken to the pan and pour in the concentrated chicken broth and water. Cover and simmer over low heat. This is about 10 mins for boneless thighs and 25 for bone-in.
4. Combine marmalade, whiskey, honey, and red chili flakes and pour into the pan and stir to combine. Simmer until thickened and thighs are well coated and cooked through.
