Shockey Way Chicken

Let's face it, I have enough chicken recipes posted here to wrap around the block.When I find one that's packed full of flavor, well I just have to share, that's just how I am.

This recipe comes from the Times Picayune, the New Orleans daily newspaperMy friend, Georgia, sent a copy of the paper to me upon the New Orleans winning the NFC Championship.

It seems a couple of the single Saints football players have personal chefs.  Chef Jones is the personal chef for a couple of the Saints players, including #88, TE Jeremy Shockey.

 Chef Jones' Shockey-Way Chicken -

Makes 4 entree or 16 appetizer servings

1/2 bottle teriyaki roasted garlic marinade and sauce
1/4-1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1/3-1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
Zest of 1/2 lemon
Crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1/4 cup bourbon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 to 3 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, fat cut off
Honey
3-4 scallions, cut diagonally

Whisk together all ingredients except chicken, honey and green onions. Put chicken pieces in a container and pour marinade over them. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to overnight. Stir occasionally so all the chicken marinates.

To cook, heat oven to 350 degrees. Place chicken pieces in a 13-by-9-inch pan lined with foil. (Discard marinade or, if you want a sauce, thicken with cornstarch and pour over chicken halfway through cooking.)

Bake up to 1 hour, until chicken pieces are 165 degrees on an instant-read thermometer. If desired, to give the dish a bit of shine, squeeze a little honey over the chicken 5-10 minutes before end of cooking time. Sprinkle with green onions at end of cooking time.

Does it get any simpler or tastier?

Don't know about the football stars, but my personal chef makes me do about half the cooking :). One of my favorite soup recipes comes from a Louisiana personal chef - not mine of course. The chicken dish sounds excellent.
