Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, minced garlic, grated ginger, honey, rice vinegar and sesame oil.

  • Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towels, then season all over with salt and pepper. Heat the canola oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium-high. Add the chicken, skin-side down, and sear undisturbed 3 minutes. Cover the pan with a splatter guard, if you have one.

  • Continue to cook until some of the fat has rendered and the skin is golden brown, about 8 minutes. Carefully, drain off the fat in the pan. Flip the chicken pieces and pour the prepared sauce over the top.

  • Transfer the pan to the oven, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened and the chicken is cooked through (165°F).

  • Remove chicken from oven and use tongs to turn to coat in the sauce. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and scallions. Serve with extra sauce from the pan drizzled on top.

A Beautiful Bird

For golden, delicious chicken, make sure the skin is as dry as possible before searing. Damp chicken skin will steam instead of brown
