Baked Spicy Garlic Chicken Thighs Recipe

Baked Spicy Garlic Chicken Thighs Recipe
Baked chicken thighs are simple to make and are an inexpensive alternative to chicken breasts. Thighs are also thought of as tastier than chicken breasts as by most food lovers. This recipe calls for the them to be skinless, making them a bit healthier in the dish. There is also crushed red pepper in this recipe which adds a delicious spicy kick. However, if you or your guests are not a fan of spicy foods, you can simple cut back on the pepper and use sesame seeds as a topping for these thighs.

15 boneless skinless, chicken thighs
1⁄4 cup cornstarch
1 1/2 inch piece fresh ginger
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons plus more to top the chicken thighs of crushed red pepper
1⁄2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 375F and grease a large baking dish.
Place the cornstarch in a large bowl and dip the thighs in one at a time, lightly coating them evenly on all sides. Shake off any excess and place them in the prepared baking dish, making sure not to overcrowd the dish. The sides of the thighs can be touching just slightly if necessary.
Next, peel and mince the ginger and place it in a large cup.
Then peel the garlic cloves by smashing them firmly with the side of a knife and thoroughly removing their skins. Mince them and place them in the cup with the ginger.
Then to the ginger and garlic add the honey, soy sauce, two teaspoons of crushed red pepper, and salt. Mix everything together thoroughly and pour it evenly over the chicken thighs. Cover with foil and bake them for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes remove them from the oven, uncover and baste them with the sauce from the bottom of the dish. Then bake them for another 15 minutes.
Then remove and baste the thighs again and lightly sprinkle them with a little more crushed red pepper. This is optional of course. If you don’t want the chicken too spicy you can simple leave this off, or sprinkle them with sesame seeds in place of the crushed red pepper. Bake another 15 min.
Then remove them from the oven and serve. This makes the perfect meal served with steamed mixed vegetables and a side of white steamed rice, enjoy!
