Thai Chicken & Slaw

This recipe is foolproof and well worth the prep time. Kids love the sweetness of the honey, and I serve the slaw on the side so my vegetarian friends can enjoy it, too.—Karen Norris, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 2 pounds)

  • 6 cups coleslaw mix
  • 1 cup frozen shelled edamame, thawed
  • 1 medium sweet pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter

Directions

  • In a small bowl, whisk the first 7 ingredients until blended. Pour 1 cup marinade into a bowl or shallow dish. Add chicken and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
