  • 8 boneless chicken thighs skin removed
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese 5 spice powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 white onions roughly chopped
  • 1 cup chicken broth low-sodium
  • 1/3 cup rice vinegar
  • 1/3 cup tamari
  • 1 tablespoon coconut sugar

  • 1/2 cup pea pods
  • 2 scallions white and green parts, sliced


  • Season the chicken thighs with the Chinese 5-spice powder.
