Asian Inspired Baked Chicken

Quick Post:  I was inspired by this recipe, but I added a little of this and that to the mix which resulted in some really tasty chicken. I made this last month and forgot to post about it sooner, but I remember that we all really enjoyed it 😉 Serve it over rice and steamed veggies of your choice and don’t waste any of the delicious sauce!

Asian Inspired Baked Chicken – 

  • 1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 3 cloves of garlic; minced
  • 1″ of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 TBSP Mirin
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 3 pounds chicken thighs (or preferred chicken meat)
  • prepared rice
  • steamed vegetables

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. Mix first 7 ingredients together in a large plastic zip-top storage bag. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add the chicken to plastic bag making sure to coat each piece.
  3. Place chicken in baking dish along with sauce/marinade or leave in large plastic bag to marinate in the refrigerator. Marinade for at least 6 – 8 hours, turning the bag once every few hours.
  4. When ready to cook, in a baking dish, bake chicken in a 425° oven for 25 minutes with the skin side up. Turn the chicken and cook another 15 minutes.
