Honey Soy Baked Chicken Thighs

Made these several times, they are delicious!

I want to try this recipe with skinless chicken breasts

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar (apple cider or rice wine vinegar — OPTIONAL)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil OPTIONAL
  • 3/4 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
  • 2 1/2 pounds (1.2 kg) chicken thighs (skinless, boneless)
  • Salt and pepper to season
  • Fresh chopped parsley to garnish


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, green onions, cooking oil, garlic, vinegar, sesame oil and ginger. Mix well and set aside.
  2. Pat chicken dry with paper towel. Trim off any excess fat. Season with salt and pepper then transfer chicken to the bowl with the marinade. Cover and marinade chicken for at least 30 minutes if time allows (or overnight).
  3. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
  4. Transfer chicken along with the marinade to a cast iron skillet or baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes, flipping twice while baking to ensure the chicken doesn’t dry out on top.
  5. Broil for 2 minutes at high heat until golden browned and slightly charred on the edges. Chicken should have an internal temp of 165°F (or 70 C).
