Honey-Sesame Glazed Chicken Thighs

Honey Sesame Glazed Chicken Thighs | Miss in the Kitchen I picked up some chicken thighs that were on sale at the grocery store the other day.  I might have marinated them but didn’t think of it in time, so I decided to make a bold Honey-Sesame Glaze.

We shipped some cattle over the weekend and it was -12 degrees.  MINUS TWELVE and snowing. I didn’t have to go out, the guys took care of it all and I stayed in and cooked.  I made Honey-Glazed Chicken Thighs, and I stirred up some fried rice to serve with it and the whole clan loved it.

It was so simple and the flavors were fantastic.  I will definitely make this recipe often, it was so easy.  The kids thought it was one of the best things I’ve ever made.

I am still counting the days until summer.  It has warmed up into the forties thank goodness.  I was just thinking these chicken thighs would be awesome on the grill.  Come on summer time!

Honey-Sesame Glazed Chicken Thighs


  • 10 Chicken Thighs
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 2 tablespoons Sesame Oil

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 425°.

Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper.

Wash chicken thighs (if you like) and pat dry with paper towels.  Set aside.

In a shallow dish (I used a pie plate) add honey, sesame oil, Hoisin Sauce, and Soy Sauce.  Place in microwave for 30 seconds.  Use a whisk to mix sauce together.  Dredge chicken thighs in sauce on both sides and place skin side up on lined baking sheet.

Bake for 30 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165°.
