Brown Sugar Soy Glazed Chicken
  • 3 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoon garlic (fresh minced garlic)
  • 1 tablespoon oil (I use avocado oil)
  • 1 teaspoon dry ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ground chili paste (I use Sambal Oelek)
  • pinch of crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1-2 tablespoons cornstarch to add to the marinade to cook and create a thick sauce to brush overcooked chicken.
  • sliced green onion
  • toasted sesame seeds
  1. In a gallon zipper bag place chicken along with soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, oil, ginger, chili paste, and crushed red pepper.
  2. Marinade for 30 minutes to overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 or grill to high.
  4. Bake chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet at 375 for 30-40 minutes or until cooked to 170° and charred on the edges or grill the chicken on the grill until the internal temperature is 170°
  5. Save the marinade and heat it in a saucepan by mixing cornstarch into the sauce before you turn on the heat, so it's smooth, then heat it up until it's thick.
  6. Brush sauce over cooked chicken.
  7. Top chicken with sliced green onion and sesame seeds.
