Chicken Spareribs

When I cook in my NY kitchen I always have Eyewitness News ( Channel 7) on. They had Mr. Food shows on years ago. Love his "oh- so good".

This is a recipe from his Site. I had plenty of thighs left and wanted to check the recipe out and see if it was a keeper- it was !


1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 pounds boneless,skinless chicken thighs
3/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon water.
1/4 cup soy sauce (used low sodium)
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons ketchup
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger ( I used fresh)
1 tablespoon cornstarch


In a large skillet over medium heat, heat oil.

Add the chicken to the pan and brown on both sides- 5-7 minutes.

In a medium bowl combine 3/4 cup water, soy sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, garlic and ginger- stir into chicken.

Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low and simmer 15 minutes- turning occasionally.

In a small bowl- combine the tablespoon of water and the cornstarch making sure there are no lumps. Add to the chicken and stir until the sauce has thickened.


  1. This looks delicious! We had Mr. Food on our Channel 7 News as well. His cooking segments were "OH, so good".

  2. I too remember Mr Food-his segments used to be on our noon news. I miss seeing him.

    That chicken looks really good Linda-and easy too-gotta love that!

  3. In Ga Mr. Food came on the early morning news... I miss his Yankee accent "ooh it's so good"

  4. I'm so going to try this! Cheers from Carole's Chatter

  5. I miss Mr. Food. He was on our evening news broadcast.
    This does look oh so good!
    Thank you for linking, Linda. Hope you have a nice weekend.
