This dish is like the fiery cousin of your favorite lemon pepper chicken. Here’s what you’ll need:

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lbs. Chicken thighs
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup vinegar
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2-3 hot peppers, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces.
  2. In a bowl, mix together soy sauce, vinegar, green onions, garlic, and onion.
  3. Add hot peppers to the mixture, depending on how hot you want it.
  4. Add chicken to the bowl and stir until well-coated.

  7. Stir occasionally until chicken is cooked through and sauce has thickened, about 20-25 minutes.
  8. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
