Thighs are the best part of the chicken, and this is a really quick way to make them delicious. The miso gives a delightful umami flavor that really saturates the chicken. The honey gives it a nice crisp and color. So very good and so easy.

Instructions Checklist

  • Mix miso paste, butter, honey, and rice vinegar together in a bowl. Rub mixture on chicken thighs, making sure to rub under and over the skin. Place thighs in a large roasting pan with enough distance between them to roast evenly.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I use a disposable roasting pan.

No need to touch or turn over thighs while roasting.

I made extra sauce. This recipe is super easy and has great flavor. Maybe next time I will broil the chicken at the end to get the skin extra crispy like in the photo. Read More

My family and I agree that this recipe was just ok. If I try it again I would use boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I did broil the chicken for a few minutes after the 30 minute baking time. This gave it a nice crispy finish. Read More

Really tasty but a bit salty. Maybe I rubbed too much miso butter under the skin. Read More

But you should not use a throw away roasting pan. You can line your roasting pan with parchment paper for easy cleanup Read More

Make sure the butter is soft or it won't mix in well. I cook on my days off and this held up very well. Made a very nice addition to my lunch. Read More
