    Methods

    1.Heat oil on medium in a large frying pan.  Add chicken thighs and cook about 3 minutes on each side until skin is golden brown and crispy.  Use tongs to remove chicken to a paper towel lined plate.
    2.Add onion and garlic and fry about 5 minutes until onions and garlic are soft and golden.
    3.Mix stock, oyster sauce, wine, soy sauce, and brown sugar in a small bowl.  Add the sauce to the pan and stir.
    4.Return the chicken to the pan, turning to cover it in the sauce.  Cover the pan and simmer 15 minutes turning the chicken once.  Chicken is done when internal temperature reads 170 degrees on a meat thermometer.
    5.Serve over rice, dribbling the saucy onions over top.
