This dish was inspired by really unhealthy sweet sticky chicken that everyone loves. But why does it have to be bad for you and make you feel sick after? It doesn’t! Try this recipe that doesn’t have any flour, MSG, ketchup, BBQ sauce or any of the other garbage that is usually in these recipes! It also happens to taste much better!!!

Prepare a large sauté pan or Dutch oven on high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Add olive oil and heat. Add pieces of chicken and sear for 8 minutes on each side. Add the rest of the ingredients except the chives and turn the flame down to medium. Cover and cook for 10-15 minutes, mixing periodically, until it becomes a glaze. The garlic will fall out of its casing!

Notes & Tips: Natural smokey flavoring comes in a bottle usually in the vinegar section of the supermarket or in specialty spice shops. I use the brand Colgin but you can use any you find. I promise it makes the biggest and best difference in this dish!
Notes about the wine:
Tuval 2016- Is a blend of 50% Syrah, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Petit Verdot. This wine has aromas of sweet cheese, blueberry jam, earth and rhubarb with flavors of spice, tart red fruit and cherries. The wine is balanced with a tannic structure that allows beautiful aging time in the bottle. This wine will pair well with this dish.
