  • Mix honey, hoisin sauce, ketchup, orange juice, mustard, ginger, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, orange zest, and cayenne pepper together in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Add chicken thighs and coat with the mixture. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, basting at least 3 times. Remove foil and continue baking, uncovered, until chicken is browned on top, about 15 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Adjust the cayenne pepper to your own liking or leave it out altogether.

If you feel that the sauce is baking off too fast, add a little bit of water or chicken stock. You should end up with a nice thick sauce around the chicken, not something the chicken will be swimming in.
