Updated: Dec 18, 2018

Do you want healthy eating habits? Functional foods are foods that have a potentially positive effect on health beyond basic nutrition. Proponents of functional foods say they promote optimal health and help reduce the risk of disease. Here is one of them.



Ingredients:

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

1/4 cup peanuts, chopped

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves


For the sauce:

1/2 cup sweet chili sauce

2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon fish sauce

1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

Juice of 1 lime

1 teaspoon Sriracha, or more, to taste


Directions:

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. To make the sauce, whisk together chili sauce, soy sauce, garlic, fish sauce, ginger, lime juice and Sriracha in a small bowl; set aside. Melt butter in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken, skin-side down, and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes per side. Stir in chili sauce mixture. Place into oven and roast until completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes. Then, broil for 2-3 minutes, or until caramelized and slightly charred. Serve immediately, garnished with peanuts and cilantro, if desired.
