Dinner: Sweet chili-glazed chicken thighs (Real Eats). With mixed vegetables and brown Jasmine rice. And 1/4 glass of New Zealand sauvignon blanc. This was good! The chicken was tender and had a nice flavor. I prefer the thighs to the breast. That's maybe 2/3 of the rice, there was a lot in the package. I drained the vegetables but included the sauce from the chicken; it had a nice flavor. The chicken is so tender you don't need a knife.
