Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a deep, oven-safe dish with aluminum foil.

  • 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.


You can use skinless chicken thighs if preferred.
