Thai-Glazed Chicken Thighs Recipe

I think like everyone out there, our family struggles with keeping meals exciting. In fact, one of my daughters’ biggest complaints is that meals can get really repetitive. So, if you’re raising your hand in camaraderie and thinking ‘same’, well, you’ve come to the right place. You need these scrumptious Thai-glazed chicken thighs in your life.

Chicken thighs are delicious, simply because they’re juicy and don’t get dry. That makes them more flavourful. Not to mention, the fact that they are more inexpensive than their white meat counterpart is a plus. If you’re looking for Asian or Latin-inspired dishes or other cuisines, check our recipe section.

  • 4 tablespoons of soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of agave syrup
  • 1 tablespoon of sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon of garlic powder or 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tablespoon of parsley

  3. Once it is marinated, add 2 tsp of olive oil into pan and sear chicken for 3-5 minutes on each side until it chars. Place chicken in an oven-safe skillet and into the oven and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes and until the chicken is no longer pink and a glaze is visible.
  4. Once the chicken is cooked, it's time for the finishing touches. Add chopped green onions and peanuts on top of the chicken. The glaze is nice and sticky so it will stick and be ready to eat.
