Very easy and oh so good. Our family's favorite outside of Southern fried! Serve with rice and a fresh green vegetable for a complete meal.

This is one of those recipes that I can count on to work every time! The ingredients are usually in my pantry, and the ease of throwing this together can't be beat! From experience I can tell you that the best cut of meat to use with this is boneless skinless thighs. I find the regular thighs with the skin on are just too fatty, and the skin doesn't get crispy.

This is one of those recipes that I can count on to work every time! The ingredients are usually in my pantry, and the ease of throwing this together can't be beat!

Another variation I use is pork chops.
This was an easy and good recipe. I did use boneless and skinless chicken thighs, added more garlic, and cooked for 30 min.
I thoroughly enjoyed this recipe! Changes I made: I added more garlic powder (we loooove garlic in this house) and a couple dashes of ground ginger also. I seasoned the chicken before putting the glaze on with a little salt, pepper, and onion powder. I used golden corn syrup, dark soy and regular ol' Heinz ketchup! I made DOUBLE the sauce because I wanted to serve it over hot buttered white rice. It was delicious! Definitely in the books for keeps.
Wonderful alternative to cooking on the grill. My husband loved the soy sauce flavor. I used honey instead of the corn syrup like other reviewers suggested.
Fantastic!!! I never review a recipe if I have changed it, since it doesn't seem fair. But I did this time due to lack of ingredients (surprising I know with such a short list of ingredients). I didn't have enough corn syrup so I added honey until I had enough. I was also short on ketchup, so I added chili sauce until I had enough. WOW!!! I did add a little onion powder and black pepper for some kick, but it would've been fine without them I'm sure. I used boneless skinless chicken thighs, but we all agree that the sauce would ROCK on anything pork!!! Just be sure to thicken the sauce if you want to spoon any over the meat. My sauce was a tad runny but it may have been my fault. What a great, inexpensive recipe!! Keep em coming!!!
My whole family enjoyed this dish as is, my kids like it so I'm happy. Tonight I am making it again and will probably tweak it a touch to give it a little more kick. I nstead of basting I turn the chicken every twenty minutes or so to get a good, all over glaze.
My two year old twins love this recipe...which makes it worth five stars in my book. It helps that my husband and I also enjoy it. I use honey instead of corn syrup and substitute Carolina Treat BBQ sauce for half of the ketchup. I also use freshly chopped garlic.
I enjoyed this recipe. My 4 year old son that does not like eating meat could not get enough of it. I used crushed garlic instead of the garlic powder. Taking in to consideration the other reviews that stated that the chicken was bland, I spiced the chicken on both sides with some chicken spice before brushing on the sauce. I will be making this recipe again.
Oh wow...this was GOOOOOD! It was quick, easy, and delicious! PERFECT for a busy mom such as myself. I didn't make too many changes...I used honey because I didn't have any corn syrup and I added a little more garlic and a dash of liquid smoke (hickory). My kids LOVED this. I will definitely make again. Thanks!
I made this as written the first time. While we enjoyed it a lot, the sauce didn't seem to have much depth. So this time, I added fresh chopped garlic and ginger, and a couple tablespoons of Hoisin sauce. It was perfect that way. Also sprinkling on sesame seeds and chopped green onion after it's done really makes a nice presentation. Thanks!
My kids are gobbling this up right this minute! This was a last minute "! What's for dinner?!" recipe search - I had honey but no corn syrup, and I like the flavor alot. Not ketchup-y, but less sassypants than barbeque. Might try this with molasses the next time I have some in the house, and up the garlic powder just a bit. Since I decided to leave the skin on my bone-in thighs (tuck some sauce under the skin!), I baked this on a rack over the baking pan to allow the fat to drip off. This increased the baking time a bit, so plan accordingly. As with any sweet sauce, the stuff on the bottom of the pan is basically charcoal, so definitely line your pan with parchment - I'm very glad I did! I turned and basted every 15 minutes, added some fresh ground pepper to each side on the last turn and zapped them under the broiler for a minute at the end to just set the sauce a tiny bit more. With a brown & wild rice mixture, my kids (me too!) are very satisfied customers right now!
Very easy and quick, the corn syrup thickens it up nice, and it tastes amazing! Definitely 6 Stars!!
Fast, simple, delicious. I used honey in place of the corn syrup. Sinless, boneless thighs - cooked uncovered for 45 minutes at 350. Yummy.
Delicious! Substituted the corn syrup for honey, and added a splash of hot sauce, a touch of Cajun seasoning and a bit of paprika to the sauce; broiled for the last five minutes to get a crispy skin... perfect with baked potatoes (which you can make at the same time)!
This is Really easy, all of the ingredients I had on hand. The changes I made were using half honey half agave nectar in place of corn syrup as we don't have corn syrup, and like other reviewers. I added about 1 teaspoon garlic powder, and about 1 teaspoon sriracha chile sauce, and some fresh ground black pepper. It wasn't hot or spicy but was very good. but next time I will add just a bit more of the chile sauce. and save some of the sauce for dipping (for the hubs) it has great flavor and is again very easy to make. Will be making this again. Thank you
This was very yummy. I used honey instead of corn syrup and cooked on a broiling pan and reserved some sauce to dip the chicken in. I also added cayanne for a kick and fresh minced garlic instead of garlic powder. It was very easy and most ingredients you already have in the kitchen. The sauce that I reserved I split it before adding the minced garlic and added garlic powder. Garlic just isnt good not cooked!
It was ok. I would have rather used a plain old BBQ sauce - but the whole family ate it without complaint!
This is a fantastic recipe and SO easy with a great taste! I added a PINCH of cayenne pepper and a little ginger as I was worried it would be too sweet and it was still great. Also a few under the broiler made it extra crispy - a definite winner!
Good recipe. I used the exact ingredients for the sauce. I removed the skins, and poured the sauce over the bone-in thighs. I'm a girl with ADD, I refuse to turn and baste things every 15 minutes. I put the dish in the oven, uncovered, and baked for 55 minutes, it turned out just right. The flavor kind of reminded me of the bourbon chicken at the mall food court, and was much easier than the bourbon chicken recipe I use periodically.
Threw the sauce away. Used bottle sause. I didn't like it.
Good quick recipe. I soaked the chicken in water and salt first. I used honey instead of corn syrup and crushed garlic instead of powder. I didn't baste because I didn't read ahead. I put a little bit of sauce in a casserole dish, salt and pepper on the chicken, and poured the rest of the sauce on top of the chicken. I put it under the broiler for about 10 minutes to get the skin crispy and then baked it in the oven.
This is a good and easy weeknight recipe. I used skinless thighs, 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 bbq sauce, and substituted honey for the corn syrup. Also used a big zipper bag to marinate the chicken in the sauce for a little while before baking. This is also a quick way to get the sauce distributed all over the chicken. While baking, make sure to drain the fat each time you baste - the sauce sticks to the chicken much better without all that fat. My family really enjoyed this. For next time, they requested a buffalo-style version of this recipe. I'll have to experiment with adding Frank's RedHot sauce...
delicious! taste almost like sweet and sour chicken but not as tangy. its a mess though. so be sure to line your pan with foil!!!
very simple and very delish! My husband adored it and my daughter the picky eater eat every last bite. I loved that I had every ingredient in the cupboard. This is a keeper!!
I did not care for this. It was bland.
This was really good and easy, My kids both said "MMmmmm". I used boneless skinless because it was what I had and used Honey instead of corn syrup. I can not wait to try them on the grill this summer. Normally we are not fan's of thigh meat but because of this recipe I think I will be using it more over the summer. Thanks!
I used thighs and legs and we thought it had a really good flavor. I did not have syrup, so I used honey instead and it was great. A little messy to eat.
I doubled the sauce and used real garlic instead of powdered. I also halved the ketchup, only because my picky toddler doesn't like it. Everyone loved this. Even my picky brother in law said that that is the best way to cook chicken thighs. The sauce coating caramelized on top and it was heavenly. I baked the chicken on a rack in the pan and kept flipping the it every fifteen minutes for an hour. It really came out crispy and all the fat dripped off into the pan. I'll be making this often.
wonderful!! Only change I made was use boneless skinless thighs and they turned out perfect!
4 stars for good base for quick dinner with things that are always in the pantry. Needs to be jazzed up a bit to compensate for sweetness. I added extra garlic, sesame oil, basalmic vinegar, pepper. i also sprinkled toasted sesame seeds in final basting. Still missing something though, to make it 5 star- next time I'm adding a little chinese allspice and definitely some asian hot chili paste for some kick.
Yummy. Simple. Perfect.
I served this to 5 children for lunch, ranging in ages from 13 months to 3 years old and they all gobbled it up! I used boneless skinless thighs, turned the chicken over after 15 minutes and turned the heat up to 400 and baked for another 15 minutes to carmelize the sauce a bit better. I then chopped up the chicken, added some corn and pan juices and served over buttered brown rice. This has become our new favorite!
I'm giving this a 2 because of the the inconvenience. This baking/basting business is for the birds. If you follow the instructions and use skin on, bone in thighs, you lose all the sauce when you take off the skin. You baste and baste and then you take off the flavor. The chicken was juicy and had decent flavor (it tasted like chicken), but most of the sauce was lost either when removing the skin or burned to the bottom of the glass pan. It felt like it took FOREVER because I was just sitting next to the oven waiting to baste again in 15 min.
This was incredibly easy and sooooo tasty. My husband and I loved it. served it w/lemon basil jasmine rice and sauted peppers and onions.
Easy, few ingredients, flavor was good, but the skin was not crisp, accept for in a few places. I will make again.
I made this for our dinner tonight & was very pleased with the results. Enen though the thighs were skinless they were very moist & flavorfull. I will definitely make them again.
I made this recipe using boneless/skinless chicken thighs and it was wonderful. Very moist and oh so tasty! Even my 4 year old who normally turns her nose up at all meat dishes loved it. The whole family agreed that they would like me to make this recipe again.
Just found this recipe and made it tonight. I followed another persons suggestion and doubled the sauce and used 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 bbq sauce - added a little honey and upped the garlic by alot! (all personal preferences). I tossed it under the broiler for a few minutes at the end to attempt to crisp the skin a bit (it didn't work - LOL) and used some Adobe, salt, pepper, and onion powder before basting. It was EXCELLENT - even my very picky son in law loved it and asked me to make it again soon! Thanks so much!
Really tasty! I had a whole chicken, and did this in the crockpot (an almost 6lb chicken, cooked all day coated in this sauce). I doubled all the ingedients except the corn syrup, and added 2 Tbsp of worschestershire sauce.
Easy and tasty recipe. I made it exactly as listed except I used light corn syrup and added some grated ginger. I basted every 15 minutes for a total of 45 minutes at 350. I took another reviewers suggestion and drained the grease each time I went to baste. I then ran them under the broiler for approximately 5 minutes. For a slightly healthier version, I used boneless/skinless thighs.
My husband loves this recipe, and always says, "I smell delicious chicken!" when walking in the door on the days I make this. I probably use about 3/4 of the corn syrup and more garlic powder. I usually make this with skinless chicken, and it works fine.
Great recipe! It worked out perfect for the taste buds I have to work with. I like ketchup, DH likes BBQ, and it tasted like both!
This recipe was a good start. It just needs something else. Like other commenters, I used honey instead of corn syrup and about 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Next time I am planning on reducing the ketchup by half and adding a couple of tablespoons of orange juice.
Delicious and my whole family, picky eaters included, loved it! I used minced garlic instead of garlic powder and I also added some Worcestershire sauce. Great recipe, will make again!
Not very flavourful, on its own not very tasty. Will try with the tweaks suggested, but on the merits of its own design 3/5 is pretty fair.
i made this last night and the family loved it!!!!i will make this again.next time i am going to try it on chicken breast.thanks.
Next time I will try boneless skinless chicken breasts. The skin on and the dark meat were just a little too much fat for us. Otherwise the flavoring was great.
This was yummy! I used about a pound of boneless skinless chicken thighs and only had to bake about 40 minutes, turning them twice. They were tender enough to cut with a fork! For the sauce, I used honey instead of corn syrup because that's what I had, and added a tablespoon of Frank's Red Hot Sauce because I didn't have any garlic powder. The sauce was quite delicious and in my opinion, very much like barbecue sauce (possibly because of the hot sauce which made it a bit spicier and less sweet). The sauce would be delicious as a dipping sauce for chicken nuggets, too. Will make this again!
Great flavor! I used skinless/boneless thighs and that cut of meat is too fatty for my taste so I'm going to try w/ chicken breasts instead. I added about 1tsp of Siracha sauce and a dash of black pepper to mine to give it some kick.
I was worried about this because the sauce wasn't tasty before it was cooked. After adding heat, though, it came together and smelled and tasted good. Easy for week night cooking. I used boneless skinless thighs, and cooked for about half an hour.
Good, but a bit too peppery for our taste. When I make it again I will probably cut the spices down a bit.
Pretty bland. Wonderful crunchy skin. But the taste was just not there.
Quick and wonderful. The ingredients are always on hand and it's very tasty. I just put the thighs in a roaster, poured over all the sauce and let it bake covered for 50 minutes at 350. Thanks for sharing.
This was very good. Like some of the other reviewers, I added more garlic and onion powder to the sauce to counteract the sweetness, and a pinch of chipotle powder, too. Very tasty and easy to whip up!
This recipe is good, weeknight fare. It's not terrific or memorable, but easy to prepare and will be liked by many.
My husband who is very picky enjoyed this recipe. We will definetly make this a lot.
Very good! Even the kids ate this! I used boneless, skinless thighs and didn't alter the recipe a bit! This one is a keeper!
Although this was quick and easy - it didnt taste as great as the reviews made it out to be - It was average at best. rr
Simple and delicious!
Was a great sauce. Just enough tang & zip. We loved it!
This was a good quick meal. I used boneless, skinless thighs, used honey instead of corn syrup (slightly less to reduce the sweetness) and a pressed clove of garlic instead of a "pinch". It tasted quite similar to the bottled Diana sauce that I would normally use when I need something fast, but much less expensive.
Very good, the kids were arguing over the last piece! Changes I made: Used maple syrup rather than corn syrup and I used a Turkish seasoning mix (garlic, oregano, rosemary, cumin, pepper, salt) to the chicken as a dry rub before adding the sauce. I served the chicken with rice cooked in chicken broth with some soy sauce.
This is a great, easy way to prepare chicken legs. Kids love them too!!
Added a little Worcester sauce. My picky 9 year old loves it!
I made this twice and I just do not care for it. I think you would get better results just using your favorite barbecue sauce
I added a dash of cayenne, extra garlic, and accidentally doubled the honey (which was used in place of corn syrup) and we loved it. Baked for an hour on a broiler pan to let the grease drain, then finished under the broiler for a few minutes to crispy it up.
An easy-to-prepare recipe, that is made with ingredients I had on hand. I made the recipe as indicated, only using fresh garlic (2 cloves) and I added onion powder and pepper as another reviewer suggested. This is a keeper for nights when quick and easy are the criteria.
My family loves this chicken! I make it with honey instead of corn syrup. I even cooked it for my boyfriend and his brother and they wanted more! My boyfriend even dipped his bread in the sauce to use up every last drop! A favorite in my home :)
WOW! Even my husband liked this one and couldn't believe it was chicken thighs. The only change I made was to use boneless skinless thighs. Yummy!
We loved this. I had 4 lbs. of chicken thighs, so I upped the other ingredients just a bit. 4 Tbsp. soy, almost 1 c. ketchup and 3/4 c. corn syrup. I used fresh garlic, just a preference. Also, I don't do 'skin', so I removed it. The outside of the chicken created a good crispy texture. Served with the Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion and Garlic recipe from MrsMDSmith, and Mac n' Cheese.
I made this into an OAMC dump recipe. I made exactly as written except I put everything in a freezer bag. On the day of cooking I thawed in the fridge. I cooked mine 45 minutes covered and 15 minutes uncovered. Everyone enjoyed it. Tasty chicken.
I tried this recipe and it was finger licking delicious...My family and I enjoyed it very much. thanks.!! I give it a 5 star
My kids and my husband loved this! It is very simple to prepare--my 11 year old daughter even made it one night. Thanks, Charlene! What a great recipie!
This is great for an easy, low ingredient meal. It utilizes ingredients I almost always have. That being said the taste is just okay. My kids liked it, and my husband and I thought it was okay, not great but still good.
It was OK for me...DH gives it a 5 I added an extra squeeze of Corn Syrup to thicken up the sauce and to get rid of the ketchup-y flavor. I'd make it again..thanks for sharing =0
So simple and so good! I did just what it said and the family loved it. Thank you for this recipe.
My son licked his fingers on this one! Great recipe! Thanks!
My son loves this chicken. It is simple to prepare and it results in tender chicken with a sweet flavorful sauce. I have prepared it with cut up chicken parts with skin and boneless skinless breasts.
When my 4 year old ask for seconds I know the recipe is good. When my 2 year old asks for seconds, this recipe goes straight into constant rotation. I did follow others suggested mods, as I only use boneless skinless chicken and I never have corn syrup in my house (I substituted honey, per other reviews). Very pleased with this change up to the standard bbq or teriyaki chicken.
Finally a glaze that really sticks to the chicken while cooking and not end up with most of it in the bottom of the pan!! Really good.
My husband and I really enjoyed this. The sauce was very good and was so easy. I used boneless, skinless thighs and served with baby spinach salad with grapes, nuts, raisins, parmesan cheese and a lite raspberry dressing. I will make this again and again and even try the sauce on the grill in the summertime.
This is exactly what I was looking for-- a simpleglaze for the chicken that was not barbeque, mustard, or lemon. My whole family loved it.
This was a nice change to try for dinner tonight. The chicken was very moist and the sauce was sweet but not overly sweet. I actually missed some of the tang you get with other BBQ sauce recipes. If I tried this recipe again, I might add a couple dashes of Franks Red Hot to give the sauce a bit of kick.
I make this recipe with maple syrup instead of corn syrup. My family Loves the flavor!
If you like BBQ chicken, you'll like this. Its almost the same thing my mom would mix together when she wanted to make BBQ chicken but did not have any BBQ sauce !
This sauce is a great base to tinker with. Just as is is pretty good, but to make it EXTRA good I add: Worcestershire sauce (1 tbs) fresh garlic (2 cloves) lemon juice (1 tsp) and red chili flakes (1/4 tsp) Happy broiling!
Really good! I would definately make again!
Very good!! I didn't have chicken thighs, so I just used drumsticks. Instead of basting every 15 minutes, I dipped the drumsticks in the sauce then put it in the oven for 45 minutes. I basted the chicken once, then put it in the broiler for a couple of minutes to darken the tops a little.
This recipe was ok. I used bone in chicken breasts instead of thighs. I found the ketchup was a little over bearing. I don't think I will make this again. If I do I will use less ketchup, maybe more garlic powder.
My family LOVES this chicken! I make this chicken meal most of the time. This recipe is great as is and I get that sticky sweet texture and taste that leaves you wanting more as a midnight snack! I do sometimes change it a bit. I like to add grape jelly. It tends to make it a bit sweeter and stickier than normal wick the kids love! I use this sauce on all kinds of meats. Also, I can't stress this enough...bake uncovered! It still comes out moist. If you don't you could wind up with"wet" sauce instead of sticky!
This was an easy crowd-pleasing recipe. I removed the skin from the chicken thighs and cooked it on a broiler pan (less fatty that way). I also cooked it at a higher temp - 425° for a shorter time - about 40 min. Turned the chicken half way and basted the other side. Pretty easy and everyone liked it!
This was just *average*. Nothing that jumped out as us. The flavor was a little *off* to me. I do admit that the chicken turned out moist. I don't think I'll make this again, though.
My husband hates most chicken dishes unless its really tasty. This one met his approval. My 8year old liked it too!Will definitely make it again.
Personally I thought it tasted kind of plain, but the kids liked it - so that is what counts.
I used a dozen boneless skinless thighs for this recipe and had lots of sauce for basting. I used honey instead of corn syrup. My daughter usually refuses to eat anything with a tomato flavor but she loved this. A quick recipe with readily available ingredients. I'll make this again.
Awesome recipe! I substituted honey after reading other reviews and upped the temp to broil for the last few minutes, this made it an amazing chicken to serve with rice. My family loved it! Will definitely make again.
I was looking for a quick and simple recipe to cook some chicken legs, thighs and wings before they spoiled - this was it!! This is the simplest, easiest and an absolutely delicious way to accomplish just that!! The pieces cook up a little soggy from the rendered fat but that was nicely overcome by crisping up under the broiler for five minutes or so. Very simple and quick but very nice flavor. IMO, the flavor and look would make one think considerably more time was spent on the dish. I did score the meat, went skin on and bone in. Approximately one hour in the oven and five to seven minutes under a 475° boiler. Excellent!! Thank you for sharing!
This is a very nice sauce for chicken. I used chicken breasts as well as adding sliced peppers and carrots. I baked it for 30 minutes then finished it under the broiler for about another 5 minutes. Served with rice it makes a very lovely meal. Hubby Approved Recipe!
I though this recipe was ok. It was definitely really quick and easy to make, so that was a plus. But as for taste, it was not anything that jumped out at me or my boyfriend. I probably won't be making this any time soon, but I will have this on hand just in case I don't have anything else to make.
