This is a wonderful semi-sweet, hot dish that will warm you nicely and can be served with brown rice, some veggies, and a nice salad.
Ingredients
  • 5 lbs. chicken thighs, bone in, skin on half of them
  • 2 tablespoons Extravagonzo Red Chili Culinary Oil
  • 2 tablespoons Extravagonzo Blood Orange Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Extravagonzo Classic White Balsamic Vinegar
  • 6 oz. pineapple juice
  • 2 Serrano peppers, minced
  • 1½ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried ground sage
  • Fresh ground black peppercorns
  • Sea salt, unrefined
Instructions
  1. On the stove top on medium heat, add 1+ tablespoon each Extravagonzo Red Chili and Blood Orange Oil to a 5 quart saucepan
  2. Swish oils around to coat bottom and lower sides of saucepan
  3. Add minced Serrano, a good bit of fresh ground black pepper, sea salt, sage, and crushed red pepper to the oil and let sauté until Serranos are soft, but not browned
  4. Add pineapple juice and bring to low boil
  5. Add chicken (I remove the skin from only about half of the pieces, some fat is good for you, contrary to what the media tells you)
  6. Drizzle the Extravagonzo Classic White Balsamic Vinegar onto the chicken in the saucepan
  7. Cook for approx 30 minutes on a medium-low boil, turning/stirring the chicken frequently
  8. I cover it with a splatter screen
  9. If using a lid, keep lid offset to allow the liquids to reduce
  10. Add more black pepper and sea salt if you like throughout the cooking process
  11. Add remaining Extravagonzo Oil and reduce heat to low boil or fast simmer for an additional 10-15+ minutes until chicken is cooked through, stirring to cook all pieces evenly through
  12. Liquids should reduce to the consistency of thin syrup while cooking; they will thicken more when cooled, if reducing too quickly, lower heat and/or add more juice or water, sparingly.
Notes
You can alter this to your taste by using all of one Oil, rather than both listed. Sea salt to taste. Use adequate unrefined sea salt in your diet. It is the choice source for essential minerals and electrolytes. Photo by: Jen at marriedtoameat-eater.blogspot.com
