  • Mixing Bowl or Ziplock Bag
  • Casserole Dish


  • 8 Bone-in Skin-on chicken thighs (about 2 kgs)
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 4 Tbsp Low Sodium Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice (or lime juice) 
  • 5 Tbsp Honey or Maple Syrup
  • 6 Cloves Minced Garlic
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Black Peppercorns
  • 2 Tsp Kosher Salt Cooking Salt


  • Mix all ingredients for he marinade together in a large bowl or a plastic Ziploc bag. Add the chicken and make sure that every piece is covered evenly.
  • Marinate in a fridge for at least 30 minutes to2 hours or, better yet, overnight
  • Preheat oven to 450F degrees.
  • Place the chicken and all of the marinade in a baking dish. Bake uncovered at 450 degrees F for 25-30minutes with the skin side up, until the internal temperature reaches 165°F.
  • To make sure the chicken tops are nicely browned and do not dry out, baste the chicken thighs in the juices and marinade about 15-20 minutes into baking.
  • To get a nicely browned, crisped up skin, turn on the grill for 2-3 minutes when the thighs are almost done cooking. Monitor broiling very closely as the tops may burn if broiled for too long.


This would be nice on rice or mashed potatoes
