Author: Crystal


  • 6 Bone in, Skin On Chicken Thighs
  • 1/4 cup Hoisin Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Honey
  • 1 tbsp Sesame Oil
  • 1 tbsp Minced Ginger
  • 2 cloves Garlic Minced
  • Sesame Seeds As optional garnish
  • Cilantro As optional garnish


  • In a container large enough to marinate chicken in, combine hoisin, balsamic vinegar, honey, sesame oil, ginger and garlic. Stir to combine.
  • Prick holes in the chicken skin using a sharp knife, toss in marinade and then leave to marinate, skin side down for 2 or more hours. 
  • Pre-Heat oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with tin foil and lay chicken thighs on top. Reserve marinade. (Alternatively you can throw your chicken thighs on your BBQ Grill). 
  • In a small saucepan, bring the leftover marinade to a boil, lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes to reduce and thicken marinade. 
  • Bake your chicken thighs for 30 minutes (or until cooked through). Baste your chicken with the reduced marinade at the 15 minute mark and the 25 minute mark. 
  • When chicken is done cooking toss in leftover marinade then sprinkle with sesame seeds and cilantro. Serve and enjoy
