Asian Chicken Thighs Recipe

Sticky Chicken Thighs 

cooked white rice

4 bone in skin on chicken thighs
1 TBS+ oil for browning

Sweet Sticky Sauce
3 TBS sweet chile sauce
1/4-1/2 tsp sriracha sauce (depending on how spicy you want it)
1/2 tsp minced ginger
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 TBSP soy sauce
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp rice wine vinegar

sesame seeds
snipped green onion 
lemon or lime slices

In a heavy skillet like cast iron, heat oil on medium.  Dry the chicken thighs and when the pan is hot place them skin-side down in the pan.  Brown until golden brown approximately 3-4 minutes per side.

PREHEAT oven to 400 degrees.

At this point in the recipe you have a choice on how to proceed:

  • If the skillet can be used in the oven, continue with recipe


  • Place browned chicken thighs skin-side up in a sprayed shallow baking dish and continue with recipe.


Turn the thighs over – browned side up in the skillet.


Sticky Sauce

In a small bowl, whisk the sticky sauce ingredients together and pour over the chicken.  Place either the skillet or baking dish in the oven and bake until chicken juices run clear; approximately 25 to 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and garnish with sesame seeds, snipped green onion and lemon or lime slices.  Serve chicken thighs with white rice.
