The sauce on the pasta is a medley of vegetables that are light and tasty. The chicken thigh is oven fried and smothered in a sweet, tangy and slightly spicy sauce. These two compliment each other perfectly.
The vegetable ingredients are very simple. Baby Bok Choy x 2, Celery and 1 large Onion. This recipe is for beginners and more.
Here are your spices you will use. There is a recipe at the bottom for the BBQ Sauce.
Let’s Get Cooking!!!
I will be using my Multi-Cooker.
Make your chicken broth or you can buy it at the store. Place skinless, boneless chicken thighs with 1 cup of water. Cook for 45 minutes on poultry. I am making another chicken dish so I will be using fresh broth.
Remove the chicken and smaller pieces of chicken. Or pour the broth into your multi-Cooker or in large pan to accommodate all the veggies.
Wash the vegetables really good. Make sure you use the heart of the celery. It’s very sweet.
Chop your vegetables so they can fit in cooker or your pan.
Place the vegetables in the pan
STOVE TOP or Multi-Cooker: Add spices salt, pepper, celery salt, 2 cloves garlic smashed and a splash of cumin. Stir it up really good so the spices will infuse into your vegetable with all the flavors of the spices. Close the lid and set the temp on your stove top on HIGH for 15 minutes. Turn down heat to medium for another 15 minutes or until vegetables are soft. Watch your pan so it doesn’t over heat. Remove from heat and let them cool down for 30 minutes.
Place you veggies into food processor, 2 tablespoons butter and then a little bit of the broth about 1/2 cup. Pulse a few times and turn to on . Have the broth handy in case you need more. You want the sauce to be thick like spaghetti sauce.
