Asian-Glazed Chicken Thighs

Asian-Glazed Chicken Thighs

I found this recipe in an old Cooking Light – March 2011 issue. It looked really simple to make and I had all of the ingredients on hand so I made it for dinner. The recipe called for bone-in chicken thighs but my boneless thighs turned out really delicious and tender. The marinade was delicious and made a terrific sauce that my kids especially loved. I really enjoy having such a flavorful and healthy dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes during the week.

How to Make Asian-Glazed Chicken Thighs:


  • 2 1/2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp sriracha sauce (more if desired)
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • Cooking spray

Asian-Glazed Chicken Thighs

Combine the vinegar, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, sriracha sauce, and garlic together in a large zip lock bag. Add the chicken thighs and place them into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Line a roasting pan with tin foil then place the roasting rack in the pan. Coat the roasting rack with cooking spray.

Pour the marinade into a small saucepan over medium-high heat and boil for 2 minutes, stirring often. Remove from heat; set aside.

Place the chicken thighs on the roasting rack; baste the chicken with the marinade. Season lightly with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper. Place into the oven and cook for 10 minutes; baste. Bake an additional 10 minutes; baste. Bake for the last 5 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through; baste.

Let stand 5 minutes before slicing and serving. Drizzle with the sauce from the bottom of the roasting pan. Enjoy.

  1. Made it tonight and delicious! Flavorful and tasty! Would definitely would make it again! had green beans and slivered yellow peppers and onions with it.

  2. After I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now each time a remark is added I get four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you may take away me from that service? Thanks!
