Crispy Oven Baked Chicken Thighs

These are so flavorful, and that crispy skin...oh, so delicious! They're also cheap and easy. Try it, it'll become a favorite! I know it says 5 servings, but I always eat two, so plan accordingly. There's plenty of marinade to throw in more chicken. If not, add more soy sauce. It's hard to mess this up.


  1. Place all ingredients in a ziplock bag and allow to marinate at least 2 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  3. Place chicken at least an inch apart on a foil-lined baking sheet that has been coated with non-stick spray.
  4. Bake 35 minutes, or until the skin is crispy and the juices run clear. Delicious!

I thought this was very good! I took the advice of another reviewer and pierced the chicken before marinating and I used low sodium soy sauce. I kept some marinade aside and simmered it and then used it to baste the chicken a few times as it cooked. ( I also drained the grease off twice before I basted it.) I will make this again, thank you.

We enjoyed the chicken thighs prepared this way. They were flavorful, tender and very juicy. The skin was dark and crispy. I marnitated them for 8 hours and cooked for 40 minutes. Thank you for sharing your recipe, which we didn't find salty.

I really enjoyed this. My husband did too. In response to other poster's concerns about saltiness, and because I'm gluten sensitive, I substituted Bragg's Aminos for soy sauce. I also pierced the chicken several times to ensure the marinade went throughout. Not sure if that's why these were so good but I'll do it this way again. Delicious and crispy. Served it with Asian Cabbage Slaw. Mmmm. Good! And oh, so easy.
