Description

Sheet pan soy-glazed chicken thighs is the perfect weeknight meal — 30 minutes in the marinade and 20 minutes in the oven. Easier and healthier than take-out!


Ingredients

Soy Marinade:

  • 1/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ginger paste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

Chicken:

  • 1 and 3/4 lbs. chicken thighs (about 8 )
  • 3 scallions, cut into thirds
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Instructions

  1. Prepare the marinade by combining soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, ginger paste, and garlic in a large bowl, then whisk to combine. Place chicken thighs in marinade, cover, and let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 450 F. Remove chicken thighs and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, then scatter the scallions on the tray and sprinkle everything with sesame seeds. Return to oven and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked through.
