  • Mix chicken broth, soy sauce, vegetable oil, sesame oil, and garlic together in a small bowl.

  • Place chicken in the prepared dish. Pour sauce over chicken and turn until fully coated.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon sesame seeds over chicken, and continue to bake until no longer pink at the bone and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes longer. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Sprinkle remaining sesame seeds over chicken before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can use skinless chicken thighs, if preferred.

This turned out fantastic! My sauce wasn't as thick as the photo would have led me to believe but none-the-less it was great! Quick and easy. Will definitely use this as a go-to! Read More

Used a boneless skinless thigh cut in bite-sized pieces. Let the meat marinade and then sauteed. It was wonderful. Read More

Good recipe but definitely thicken the sauce up as other users suggested. I also doubled the sauce. Used almost 3 lbs of boneless chicken thighs and cooked at 400 for about 20-25 minutes. Great over Jasmine rice. Read More

Loved this. So easy. I used boneless thighs (2) and a large boneless breast split in two. Flavor is delicious! Will make again. Read More

Amazing - here's a hint for the sauce. Like others, it was VERY thin, not at all like the author's photo. Easy fix - after you are all done baking, drain the liquid, set aside 1/2 cup and put the rest into a small pot. Whisk the 1/2c liquid with 2 TBL cornstarch until thoroughly combined then whisk it slowly into the rest in the simmer pot. Simmer for a few minutes and you'll have a nice thick sauce! I doubled the sauce recipe and used a 12-thigh pack. Cooked up some Jasmine rice, added fried egg and broccoli and mixed in some of the sauce! Perfecto! Read More

I added paprika, red pepper flakes, rice wine vinegar and a bit of sugar for a sweet and savory flavor. It was delicious. Read More
