Asian Spicy Chicken Thighs

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 45 mins

This recipe is a dramatic modification of an Asian Grilled Chicken recipe I found on Yahoo Health. It's spicy and delicious. I originally made it with chicken thighs but it also works with chicken breasts. Sid dishes I have had it with are asparagus, grilled brussels sprouts, curry couscous and rice pilaf. 5 minutes to prepare, 30 minutes to marinate. "Mmmm, those are great thighs!"

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all the ingredients in a small bowl (except for the chicken thighs).
  2. Pour the mix into a ziplock plastic sandwich bag.
  3. Place one thigh in the bag and coat thouroughly by massaging the mix around the thigh.
  4. Place the second thigh in the bag withg the first and coat thoroughly.
  5. Refrigerate chicken in the bag for a minimum of 30 minutes or overnight.
  6. On a tinfoil covered cookie sheet, bake the chicken for 45 minutes or until no longer pink.
  7. Alternate microwave instructions: Cook in bag (partially open) in a microwavable dish at 1/2 power for 5 minutes.
  8. Flip the bag over and cook for 5 minutes at 1/2 power for 5minutes.
  9. Remove chicken from bag and dish and broil on the top shelf at high setting for 5 minutes.

this was really good! simple w/ a huge payoff. I didn't have the thai spice so I used chili powder instead and now I can't imagine it any other way. I made a bigger batch w/o any trouble

Would have rated this higher but lacked oven temp so I had to take a point off. I used skin on, bone in chicken thighs and substituted Chili Powder as another review for the Thai Seasoning. Kind of scared it would be spicy hot, I am a wimp, my husband not. They were not! In fact they were just right yet spicy different. I baked 45 min at 375. Skin was crunchy and inside was nice and moist. Could taste hints of all the seasoning and a great blend. Thanks TF!
