Low Carb Kimchi Chicken Thighs

Kimchi Chicken ThighsMany of you may think of Kimchi Chicken Thighs as very hot & spicy which it certainly can be but with the addition of the tomatoes and wine I think you will find it’s not that spicy.  Kimchi is the national dish of Korea and there is a battle royal with Japan for not only who makes the best kimchi but who made it first. Uh, I don’t know but I do know it is a super healthy fermented food. Here is what Dr. Mercola says.

KimchiSeveral years back in my local New Seasons Market I said to a fellow in the produce department that I know, and knew wasn’t the right person, that I wanted to talk to the resident store expert about kimchi. Well, set me back on my heels and blow me over with a feather. Turns out David is the resident expert, had been making his own kimchi for many years and proceeded to tell me more than I ever wanted to know and now, because of David, I have eaten kimchi ever since. Now I do not make my own (what a pity) and this is the brand I do use WildBrine.  Sometimes I eat the Japanese version and sometimes the Korean version and for this recipe you can use any kimchi you can get your hands on.

  1. If you think you can eat two of these puppies you might want to think again as there is so much else to eat with one thigh. Go ahead, I have tried and I can't do it.
