Oven Braised Honey Soy Chicken Thighs

Oven Braised Honey Soy Glazed Chicken Thighs is one of the easiest, juiciest, finger-licking chicken recipes around! The entire family is going to love this easy dinner entrée.

Yield: 8 servings 1x
Prep: 12 hoursCook: 45 minutesTotal: 12 hours 45 minutes


8 large bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce

1/4 cup plus one tablespoon honey, divided

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 tablespoons toasted sesame seed oil

1 tablespoon minced fresh garlic

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 tablespoon corn starch

1 tablespoon water


  1. Place chicken thighs into a gallon zip lock bag.
  2. Mix soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, one-quarter cup of the honey, olive oil, sesame oil, garlic, ginger and lemon juice and pour over chicken.
  3. Seal bag and refrigerate 12-24 hours.
  4. When ready to cook, preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. Place chicken pieces skin up in a braiser or a 9X13 baking pan.
  6. Reserve one half cup of the marinade and pour the rest over the chicken.
  7. Place the chicken in the oven for 35-40 minutes uncovered, or until the internal temperature of the thickest thigh reaches 165 degrees F.
  8. While chicken is braising, place reserved half cup of marinade into a small sauce pan and add one tablespoon of the honey. Bring to a boil and simmer three minutes.
  9. Remove from heat. Mix the corn starch and water in a small bowl and slowly drizzle into hot liquid while briskly whisking. If it is lumpy, simply pour through a strainer and set aside.
  10. Once the chicken reaches 165 degrees F, remove and set oven to broil.
  11. Brush the glaze over the tops of each piece of chicken then broil for 3-4 minutes, or until golden. If you want the skin extra crispy, simply broil longer.
  12. Serve immediately.
