Any cook who's willing to take a bit of a risk will 
always get a big thumbs up from us.
That's why this recipe, from San Francisco-based food 
writer Shirley Sarvis, still stands
out as a favorite. You wouldn't know it by looking, 
but the tomato sauce has a special

 4 chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 pounds), skin and visible 
fat removed
 1/2 teaspoon salt
 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
 1 tablespoon olive oil
 1 can (28 ounces) whole tomatoes, drained
 2 tablespoons grated fresh gingerroot
 2 tablespoons minced garlic
 1 1/4 teaspoons granulated sugar
 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
 1/2 cup loosely packed cilantro

1. Season chicken with salty and pepper
2. Heat oil in a medium-size heavy skillet over medium 
heat. Add chicken and cook 4
to 5 minutes per side, until lightly golden. remove 
to plate with slotted spoon.
3. Add all remaining ingredients except cilantro to 
skillet. Cook over medium-high heat
3 to 4 minutes, stirring to break up tomatoes, until 
sauce is thickened. 
4. Return chicken to skillet and spoon sauce over top. 
Cover and simmer 25 to 30
minutes, stirring sauce and turning chicken 2 or 3 times, 
until chicken is very tender.

7 g fat, 72 mg chol, 673 mg sod. Exchanges:

EDITOR'S NOTE: Shirley Sarvis suggests that, since the 
skin is removed, the chicken
should be browned only until golden. Otherwise, it will 
turn tough.
