I have not tried this recipe. I'm posting this recipe for safe keeping. I got this recipe from The Big Book Of Easy Suppers. Offer these flavorful chicken thighs baked in an orange soy sauce spooned over fluffy rice. Serve with avocado and orange slices.
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 6 boned and skinless chicken thighs (1 1/2-2 pounds)
- 1⁄4 cup orange juice
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- Preheat oven to 350.
- In a medium skillet over medium-high heat, warm oil. Add chicken thighs and brown, 6 or 7 minutes on each side. Transfer to a lightly sprayed or oiled 8x8-inch glass baking dish.
- In a bowl or cup, whisk together orange juice, soy sauce, zest, honey, salt, and ginger and pour over chicken. Bake, uncovered, 30 minutes. Baste with sauce. Turn and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake until chicken is no longer pink in the center and seeds are toasted, about 15 minutes longer.
I really liked this Asian dish. I added 1/4 tsp each garlic and onion powder and loved the flavor of the sauce. It wasn't very "orange-y" for my tastes so I may up the orange juice to soy sauce ratio next time. I think I'll also add some orange zest to really pump it up. Thank you for posting an easy weeknight recipe!
I used this marinade on mini drumsticks I added a little less orange juice less orange juice a ratio of 2/1 of the soy and more honey but it was a good staring place It's a nice liquid content for braising but you have yo watch the heat due to the sugar content
Family and I enjoyed this super easy chicken recipe. The sauce was tangy and slightly sweet. I used fresh-squeezed orange juice and highly recommend it. The sauce is thin and could be thickened with cornstarch, but we spooned it over the chicken and brown rice. So yummy and comes together quickly. Thanks for posting.
