Cooking Time

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes (excluding marination time)
  • Cook Time: 35-40 minutes
  • Total Time: 50-55 minutes

Serving Size

  • This recipe serves 4 people.

Ingredients

  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 inches fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh herbs (like parsley or cilantro) for garnishing

Directions

  1. Preparation: Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). In a small bowl, mix together the olive oil, minced garlic, grated ginger, honey, soy sauce, black pepper, and salt to create the marinade.
  2. Marinate: Place the chicken thighs in a large bowl or zip-lock bag. Pour the marinade over the chicken, ensuring each piece is well-coated. Let the chicken marinate for at least 30 minutes (or overnight for deeper flavor).
  3. Cook: Arrange the marinated chicken thighs in a single layer on a baking tray. Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes, or until the chicken is golden brown and the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).
  4. Garnish and Serve: Remove the chicken from the oven and let it rest for a few minutes. Garnish with freshly chopped herbs before serving.
