  • 7-8 bone-in skin-on chicken thighs (2 pounds)
  • 1 tbsp oil for browning chicken
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3 tbsp miso paste
  • 1 2 inch piece fresh ginger peeled and chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp chili garlic sauce


  • Heat oven to 375 °F. Pat chicken dry, sprinkle with salt.
  • Mix sauce ingredients in a mini food processor or blender and set aside.
  • Heat oil in oven-proof skillet. When it ripples, add chicken, skin side down. Immediately shake pan to prevent skin from sticking to pan. Brown on one side for 4-5 minutes, turn and brown on the other side.
  • Drain excess oil. Spoon sauce over chicken, spreading evenly and transfer skillet to oven.
  • Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until meat thermometer registers at least 165°F.
