Asian Style Chicken Thighs

These chicken thighs are so tender they will melt in your mouth. The combination of sweet honey, salty soy sauce and a burst of ginger work especially well in this recipe.



1/4 cup fresh ginger, peeled

3 large cloves garlic

1/2 cup hoisin sauce (found in Asian section)


2 tablepoons soy sauce

8 boneless chicken thighs (about 1 1/2 pounds)


Honey Tips

How Honey is Made

To make honey, bees drop the collected nectar into the honeycomb and then evaporate it by fanning their wings.


In a food processor chop ginger pieces and garlic. Add hoisin, honey and soy sauce. Process until smooth.
Remove excess fat from chicken thighs. Place in a zip lock bag. Pour marinade over thighs and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.
Preheat broiler. Cover broiler pan with foil. Spray foil with non-stick cooking spray. Place chicken pieces in one layer on prepared pan. (Discard marinade.) Broil 5-7 minutes on each side or until chicken is browned and cooked through.
Serve with rice.
