The simple soy sauce and honey glaze caramelizes on the chicken to a sticky glaze. Only 25 minutes in the oven gives you just enough time to make some rice and toss a salad for a complete and super-tasty meal!

1. I’ve minced the garlic and ginger on a rasp grater, and have also chopped it fine. The rasp creates more flavor, so I would recommend that over fine-chopping. It’s also a bit easier.
2. I’ve used regular and low-sodium. Both are delicious. Choose your poison based on your own salt tolerance, because it’s a pretty big dose.
3. Try to stick with around 3 lb for 8 chicken thighs. If you have closer to 4 lb, you might want to add on cooking time, but you risk burning the thighs. So you may want to lower the temperature for an additional 5-10 minutes to finish cooking larger thighs. Or cover with foil if they are getting too dark for your taste.
