This Asian Glazed Garlic Chicken features tender, juicy chicken glazed with an Asian-inspired sauce. It has a little heat and hints of garlic, sesame and ginger. An easy weeknight recipe! Marinate and bake!
1tablespoonfinely chopped chives or green onions,for garnish
Whisk together the rice vinegar, honey, tamari sauce, sesame oil, Sambal Oolek, garlic, ginger and salt.
Put the chicken in a resealable bag (or a marinating container) and pour half of the marinade on top. Seal the bag carefully and massage the marinade into the chicken pieces. Lay flat and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Pour the remaining marinade into a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring often until reduced and slightly thickened.
Preheat oven to 350*F. Remove the chicken from the bag and discard the used marinade. Place chicken thighs into a baking dish, and brush with ⅓ of the thickened marinade from the saucepan.
Bake for 45-50 minutes, basting again after 10 - 15 minutes. Chicken will be done when a meat thermometer indicates it has reached at least 165°F. Remove from the oven, cover with foil and let stand for 5 - 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, boil the remaining marinade for 1 to 2 minutes and serve alongside the chicken. Garnish with chives or green onions.
