    Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix broth, vinegar, soy sauce and garlic. Carefully add to skillet around chicken. Heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 25 to 30 minutes or until juice of chicken is clear when thickest part is cut to bone (at least 165°F) and sauce thickens. Serve with rice.

Expert Tips

  • When adding the broth mixture to the skillet with the chicken, try to avoid pouring liquid on the chicken skin. The drier it stays, the crispier the skin will be.
  • If there is a lot of excess skin on the chicken thighs, trim off some of the skin so that the thighs fit easily in the skillet.
