Made this tonight & didn't have all ingredients. Normally I like to go with exactly as written 1st time but needed to use up boneless, skinless chicken thighs & this family is discount & dollar store style. Didn't have peppercorns, used table pepper, omitted salt, sherry, rice vinegar & sesame oil, subbed apple cider vinegar & yellow onion, added 2 TBS Brown Sugar, extra honey, red pepper flakes & a bit of pineapple juice & pineapple, Asian chili sauce & teriyaki. I think this would be 5 stars with ingredients as listed coz I definitely would've given 4.5 stars. Fairly easy to make, for my 1st time I got all ingredients together ahead of time for ease of cooking. I had to make 2 batches coz I had 12 thighs. Served with leftover mashed potato cakes from this site using bacon & onion & cheese in the mix & when done, added a dollop of sour cream. Put everything on baking sheet & stuck in 350 oven while I thickened sauce left in pan with flour/water mix & used that as sauce over all meat. An Asian chef friend of mine told me the key to a good sticky sauce is adding a bit of honey over the meat before adding the sauce & I feel the added time in oven solidified the stickiness/goodness. DELICIOUS. Thank you for the recipe & I find that it can be modified easily using on hand ingredients. The best thing besides flavor/taste, there were no leftovers & I'd used leftover food from 2 days ago to make the whole meal. Cost & time effective!
