One of my favorite food memories of my own momma’s was the smell of Ketchup and Lemon Pork Chops The rich tomatoes baking with brown sugar and lemon smelled like summer BBQS and the sweet and tangy taste of the slow cooked sauce and the bright tart lemons made my mouth water the minute I walked up to the house coming home from school. Gosh, don’t you want your kids to have the coming home for dinner memories?
My family does not really eat pork any longer, but we do eat chicken and enjoy spicy food! Last night I baked up a batch of my Siracha Sticky Chicken which has strong hints of that recipe my mom made for dinner at least every other week in my childhood. My husband seemed to like it and I am pretty sure our son would have sung its praises if he did not have a cup of green beans staring at him from the plate.
(note: This summer is the summer that my son will love green vegetables, I just know it!)
This easy recipe for chicken legs of thighs is cooked kind of low and slow. You really want to give that sauce a chance to cooked down on the meat, this give it that fun ‘sticky goodness”.
