Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the soy sauce, sugar, chicken broth, vinegar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and red pepper flakes in a large zip lock bag. Mix until well combined. Add the chicken thighs to the marinade, seal the bag, and place in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat and coat with cooking spray.
  3. Once the pan is hot, add the chicken thighs, 3-4 at a time, and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked through. Don't move the chicken once you put it in the pan, let it get nice and brown on one side before you turn it over. Remove the chicken to a serving platter.
  4. Pour the remaining marinade in the hot pan and cook down for about 5 minutes until slightly thickened. Strain the sauce in a sieve and pour over the chicken. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and/or the chopped scallions.
  5. Note: Tamari is a type of soy sauce that his a richer flavor. Once you try Tamari, you won't buy any other soy sauce again!

Really good chicken. I added fish sauce to the marinade, but otherwise followed everything exactly. I also marinaded it overnight. I liked how easy it was to make, and it was great served alongside Thai noodles.

This marinade/sauce is amazing and perfect. To marinate quicker, I deboned and cut the thighs up into bite size pieces so in just 2 hours it had great flavor. I served it with Jasmine coconut rice and was glad there weren't leftovers because it would have been hard to put our forks down. Thanks for a home run recipe!

This was soooo delicious! If I had chopped up the chicken thighs first, I think the kids would have thought it came from a restaurant. Thanks for a family pleaser.
