Mark's Idea for Sweet and Sour Thai Chicken....
Asian food always surprises me and I like that. I also like the fact that its easy to cook and its fast. For this dish you will need one package of chicken thighs with the bone in and skin on. You will also need one lemon, about 7-8 hand picked apricots, one fresh green zucchini, some spices and herbs along with a package of Lo Mein noodles. And, don't forget to pick up a bottle of sweet and sour sauce.
Begin by marinating the chicken in fresh squeezed lemon juice. Let sit for about 15-20 minutes. Next, season with paprika, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. Lay the seasoned chicken thighs into a hot skillet of olive oil and brown on all sides. Once browned, reduce the heat and add half a bottle of sweet and sour sauce and 2 tbs of extra lemon juice mixed with a dash of low sodium soy sauce. Let this simmer (tossing in the washed apricots 'skin on') while you prepare sauteed zucchini and the lo mein noodles.
When things come together, put it all on a low lipped serving plate and enjoy!
... see you at the table
