Baked Asian Chicken Thighs

This easy baked chicken recipe marinades these chicken thighs in a mahogany glaze of Asian flavors. The marinade is easy to make, sweet, sticky and delicious.


This recipe is so simple I almost feel bad about posting it.

I make these thighs two to three times a month and my family never tires of them. It does require a bit of pre-planning and by pre-planning I mean marinading the chicken in a zip-lock bag overnight.

Honestly, it is that simple. You could marinade them in the morning before you go to work if you are pressed for time and forgot to do it the night before.  You can bake them when you get home.
I would probably go 8 hours minimum in the marinade if you can.

You can use any type of chicken, breasts, wings it is all good. I just like the thighs because they are dark meat and so full of flavor.

Also the marinade makes the chicken very moist and the skin so crispy and delicious.
