Thai Chicken Thigh Bake Ingredients :

  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ? cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup peanut butter
  • 3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger root
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh garlic
  • 2 tablespoons chile-garlic paste

  • 10 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized cubes

How to Make Thai Chicken Thigh Bake


Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, peanut butter, hoisin sauce, ginger, garlic, and chile paste in a resealable container. Mix well. Stir in cornstarch. Add chicken to marinade, cover, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a jelly roll pan or rimmed cookie sheet with a double layer of foil large enough to envelop the chicken.


Spread chicken evenly over the bottom layer of foil. Top with the marinade, fold the upper layer of foil on top, and wrap to fully cover chicken.


Roast in the preheated oven until chicken thighs are no longer pink, about 1 hour. Unwrap and sprinkle with cilantro.

Recipe Notes :

Substitute sriracha sauce for the garlic chile paste if desired.
