"Not sure where I found this recipe, but make it monthly for my family. I have used vegetable oil in place of the sesame oil and it still tastes great."

"So simple, quick, and delicious. The green onion is not a must, chopped yellow or white onions work fine. After making this about 10 times, I now put all the ingredients in a gallon size plastic bag the day before and marinate it overnight. I increased the amounts of garlic and ginger. The first time I made it, some of the sauce burned a bit, so I cut back the oven temp to 325-350 and just cook it a bit longer. Delicious every time and never get tired of it. My 16 y.o. daughter's favorite."
"I made this 2 times within 4 days. The 1st time I used bone in thighs with skin and it was good but the 2nd time I used boneless skinless thighs and marinated for 2 hours and it was PHENOMENAL!!!!! My husband was beside himself and made noises all throughout the meal :O) I was so proud because not only was it AWESOME, it looked just beautiful! I garnished with green onion and served over white rice with eggrolls. I have been telling anyone who will listen how fantastic this recipe is! My hubby said it was in the top 5 all time awesome meals I have cooked!"
"This was really good. I took out a package of bone-in, skin on chicken thighs out of the freezer, there were five pieces in the bag. I let them thaw over night, mixed up the sauce ingredients in the morning, with a few changes, didn't have honey, so I used brown sugar, sprinkled some hot pepper flakes for zing, and I did not use three tablespoons of sesame oil. I would NEVER use three tablespoons of sesame oil in anything. It would be totally overwhelming. I used just one tablespoon.I don't normally have such a strong opinion but I made the mistake once, in a marinade for grilled salmon. I couldn't go near sesame oil for two years. I poured the sauce ingredients into the bag with the chicken and left it all day in the fridge. Baked as directed, turning twice, once every twenty minutes, ending with skin side up, and turned the broiler on the last five minutes or so to crisp up the skin as another reviewer suggest. Served with white rice. They were excellent! Moist and tender and not too salty at all. Thanks so much! I love fast and simple, these were great!"
"This has become one of my go-to recipes. It is great! I prefer skin off, bone in thighs. I usually cut down on the soy sauce and replace some of it with water or use low sodium soy sauce. I also add red pepper flakes or cayenne to give it some kick.
Absolutely delicious over rice!"
"oh WOW! i had been eyeing this recipe for nearly a week, as i had some frozen thighs, desperate to be prepared. after reading through all of the reviews numerous times, i tweeked only a few things. i did end up marinating the thighs, overnight. i used a ginger-infused soy sauce [i think fresh ginger would have definitely punched it up quite a few notches], a pinch and a half of brown sugar, and a shake of red pepper flakes. i scaled it down to two thighs, baked for thirty minutes before turning, and ten more afterwards. i have never roasted such moist chicken, EVER. the flavor was delicious, and everyone was quite pleased. thank you so much for unfreezing my chicken thighs!"
"This is a keeper-we all loved it. I did put this under the broiler so the skin to get crusty. Served this with recipe#420690 and recipe#71739"
"Made this last night for dinner and WOW! I only used 4 thicken thighs with skin and the bones but used the full amount of sauce. I did marinate them for about 2 1/2 hours and then baked them. I used fresh ginger, 1 large clove of garlic minced and added about 1/4 tsp. chili garlic sauce for some kick. Oh yes, as some other reviews suggested I added just a little cornstarch (to thicken a little) and about 1 1/2 Tbls. of brown sugar (for more sweetness). The chicken was soooo moist and flavorful...just perfectly done! Served with Recipe#160213#160213 and Recipe#347607#347607. What a fabulous meal...DH wants this again next week! Thank you for a wonderful recipe to put in my Favorites of 2010."
"I made this recipe as written, but I gave it only 3 stars because it was just too soy-eee ( ok, not a word) for me. It probably would be much better if tweaked somehow, but then I wouldn't be rating this recipe fairly; ie: I would be rating my adjusted recipe, which many posters tend to do when rating a recipe. I wouldn't make this again, without rethinking, and adjusting the ingredients."
"This was really good! I think I'd like just a bit more of a spicy bite to the sauce, so I'll add either chili flakes or chile garlic sauce next time. I cooked 2 thighs, but made half of the sauce and served it over jasmine rice. Additionally, I minced the white part of the green onions, but kept the green parts to garnish the completed dish, giving a fresh crunch to it. This was fully cooked after 45 minutes, I checked the temp after 20 minutes and flipped the pieces over at that point to finish cooking. The flavors of sesame, honey and soy were very nicely balanced I wouldn't change anything about the ingredients except to change the ginger to fresh- I always prefer fresh ingredients when I can get them. Very nice- I may try using this as a marinade, and cooking the chicken on the grill. Thanks for a wonderful dinner; I'm already looking forward to the leftovers for lunch tomorrow."
"Boneless, skinless chicken thighs were used and cutting the cooking time to about 45 minutes. The sesame oil and honey were both reduced somewhat. After the chicken came out moist and tender, the sauce was placed in a pan on top of the stove and a touch of cornstarch added to thicken. The thickened sauce was spooned over the chicken and then it was sprinkled lightly with sesame seeds. I will be making this one again."
"So easy and so good. This is a keeper recipe especially for all the working mom. I added 1 tablespoon of garlic chili because my family likes spicy food. Everything else was the same. Man, is it good. I used the same amount ingredients on 14 drumsticks."
"YUMMMM! Made this as written without any alterations to ingredients. I did marinate for an hour in a ziploc bag before putting in a PAM sprayed baking dish. Everyone walking in the door wanted to know what was for dinner because it smelled so good. The chicken was moist and wonderfully flavored. Although the chicken was really good on its own, after removing the chicken from the baking dish I emptied the rest of the sauce into a saute pan, added a couple tablespoons of brown sugar and reduced the sauce by half. The sauce really made this dish out of this world. Just a bit of extra sauce on each chicken thigh to go with the steamed rice and it was absolutely amazing. Fantastic quick, easy and delicious recipe!"
"The whole family loved these last week so much that they've asked for them again tonight! Thanks a bunch Petunia! Second time around I thickened the sauce at the end with some cornstarch. Yummy! My 9 yr old picky eater at 3 pieces!!!"
"I didnt change a thing with this recipe and it was great. Served with white rice."
"This recipe was simple and delicious! I added mushrooms which tasted really great mixed up in the rice. I will definitely be saving this in my recipe box."
"This was yummy and easy!!! I took the skin off the thighs to cut down on fat. I did not have green onions so used 1/2 of a yellow onion. I did add 1 teaspoon of cumin to give the sauce a smoky taste and marinated the thighs for a 1/2 hour. Thanks for the recipe. It is a keeper."
"This was very good. I thought the chicken might be overcooked with such a long baking time, but it wasn't. The flavors from the sauce fully penetrated the chicken, making every bite sensational. Based on some of the other reviews, I used half sesame oil and half vegetable oil, which worked out well."
"Very good, but WAAAAAY too much sesame oil!!! I cut it down to one tablespoon and the flavour was still overwhelming, so I doubled the rest of the ingredients and added some dried red pepper flakes, and then it was perfect. Definitely one I'll be making again, just with considerably less oil."
"My husband made this recipe the other day. It was delicious. We used chicken legs instead of chicken thighs."
"I just made this for a dinner I'm serving tomorrow. One of my kids was starving, so I gave him a taste. He came back for 2nds and 3rds. Other kids will taste it tomorrow, but it seems like a winner."
