 Gingered Chicken Thighs
"This recipe was born from the desire to develop a time-friendly, easy-on-the-budget entree loaded with savory Asian flavor. It’s a family favorite and also a favorite at the girls’ camp where I am the head cook. I usually serve it with rice prepared with coconut milk." Debbie Fleenor — Monterey, Tennessee
