Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Whisk Sriracha chile sauce, soy sauce, mirin, lime juice, butter, brown sugar, and ginger together in a bowl.

  • Put chicken thighs into a large, resealable plastic bag. Pour the chile sauce mixture into the bag. Squeeze excess air from bag and seal; marinate at least 1 hour to overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  • Remove chicken thighs from marinade and shake to remove excess moisture; arrange onto prepared baking sheet.

  • Pour marinade into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer marinade for 10 minutes.

  • Roast chicken thighs in preheated oven for 20 minutes, brush with the reserved marinade, and continue roasting until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, 10 to 15 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone, should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

For crunchier skin, increase heat to broil after brushing with reserved marinade and cook until skin browns, about 5 minutes.

Editor's Note:

The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the marinade ingredients. The actual amount of the marinade consumed will vary.

AWESOME!!!!!! Super spicy a little sweet and a HUGE hit with my guys! I marinated mine for the full 24 hrs. My little guy suggested trying this with chicken wings so I can't wait to try it like that. I did remove the skin from the chicken thighs just to make it a bit healthier and that worked wonderfully. It took about 45 mins. total for the chicken to be done. Hubby wants me to make a jar of the sauce for him to take to work lol that's how much he loved it! The recipe didn't specify what to do with the limes and cilantro so I just assumed to put them on before serving. I also drizzled mine w/ a bit of honey to cut the heat a bit (I like spicy but not too spicy)...it was delicious w/ that addition. This is a definite keeper YUM YUM YUM!!!!!!!! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Used pinot grigio for the wine and white sugar because I had run out of brown. And still really enjoyed this recipe. I added an extra 3/4 tablespoon of sugar though. I didn't have time to let it marinate for so long so I put the chicken thighs in a baking dish poured all the sauce in let it marinate for 1/2 an hour & followed the same baking time as the recipe and just let it bake in the sauce. Turned out great. I will definitely make it again. Read More

I followed the recipe's ingredient list but also added a couple smashed garlic cloves into the marinade. I used skinless boneless thighs and grilled the meat rather than baked. I never did figure out why cilantro was listed as an ingredient since it wasn't used...so don't bother buying it. I'd make this again in a heartbeat! Read More

Awesome recipe if you enjoy spicy food. Tried it last night for the first time and will definitely make it again! Was a little short on time so I only marinated the chicken about three hours before cooking but is was full of flavor. Thanks for posting this recipe monica69 great job! Read More

This is an interesting tasting recipe. I tasted the marinade after it simmered for a while and it tasted rather strange. Fortunately the chicken came out tasting nothing like the cooked marinade... Read More
