Honey Soy Chicken Thighs
Total time: 
Serves: 4
An easy, deliciously moist sweet-and-sticky chicken recipe.
  • 3-4 lbs chicken (I used 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs, but there is easily enough marinade for more)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or finely grated
  • ½ tsp ground ginger (or ½ Tbsp freshly grated gingerroot)
  • GLAZE:
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  1. Line baking dish with foil and arrange chicken pieces in dish with bone-side down. Whisk marinade ingredients in small bowl, then pour over chicken. Cover with plastic and refrigerate for at least two hours, up to 24 hours. Turn chicken halfway through marinading time to coat both sides evenly.
  2. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. Remove plastic, flip chicken back to bone-side down and bake for 45 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. After 30 minutes, whisk together honey and soy sauce for glaze and pour or brush over chicken before baking the remaining 15 minutes.
If you make this chicken with roasted potatoes, the 30 minute point where you baste the chicken is also a perfect opportunity to give your potatoes a stir so they roast evenly on all sides :)
