Quick, easy, and very tasty – a great choice for a busy weeknight, and can be scaled up easily to feed a larger group. Chicken thighs also help keep costs down, and come out very juicy and tender.

This dish uses a cooking technique called “sheet baking”, which is nothing more than using a large baking sheet rather than a casserole dish. It’s a good choice if you’re preparing items like meats or vegetables that don’t involve lots of sauces. It’s especially handy if you’re cooking a larger quantity to feed a crowd for a family get-together or party.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F. Line a large baking pan with aluminum foil.

  2. Lay the chicken thighs on the baking pan so they are flat and pieces do not overlap.

  3. In a bowl, mix all remaining ingredients thoroughly to make a glaze. Spoon 2/3 of the glaze evenly over the chicken. Do not cover chicken with foil.

  4. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove pan from the oven. Set oven to broil on High and move rack closer to elements if needed (6-8 inches).

  5. Baste chicken with pan juices, then spoon remaining glaze on top.

  6. Place back in oven and broil 7-10 minutes or until the glaze on the chicken has caramelized.

  7. Remove from oven and allow to rest 5 minutes before serving.
