James Diaz


3 lbs chicken thighs
4 - 6 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 small onion, grated or minced into fine pieces
cup soy sauce (I used the reduced sodium kind)
⅓ cup ketchup
⅓ cup + 1 Tbsp honey
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsps brown sugar

For the Sauce on the Side:
2 tsps cornstarch
Drippings from the baking dish

1. Pre-heat the oven to 375F.
2. In a glass 9"x10" baking dish whisk together all ingredients except for the chicken. Combine well.
3. Place the chicken into the dish and spoon some of the mixture over top of each piece.
Optional: You can marinade the chicken in this mixture ahead of time if you like.
4. Place the baking dish in the oven uncovered and bake for 45 - 60 minutes.
5. Once the chicken is finished cooking, remove from the baking dish and place on a serving plate.
6. Serve with rice, veggies or anything else you might enjoy it with!
7. How to make the Sauce on the side:
8. Skim the fat off the top of the drippings as much as possible.
9. Combine about of the drippings and the cornstarch in a small dish and set aside. Mix it together using a whisk to make sure there are no lumps.
10. Pour the remaining drippings into a sauce pot and bring to a boil.
11. Add the cornstarch mixture and lower the heat. Stir constantly using a whisk until the sauce reaches the desired consistency. Remove from the heat and serve with the chicken.
