Directions:

Mix all the ingredients together except honey, sesame seeds, and fresh parsley in a medium mixing bowl then put the marinate in fridge. Next remove the skin and fat from chicken thighs before rinsing well with cold tap water. Place the cleaned thighs in a large, deep oven baking pan; then spread evenly. Remove the marinate from the fridge and spoon over the chicken evenly covering each piece generously; using all the marinate. Place in fridge for 6 hours to allow the chicken to absorb the flavor.

After thirty minutes. Remove the pan from oven. Using tongs, remove each piece of chicken and place on a plate for a moment. Carefully pour the marinate into a metal bowl; use oven mitts for safety. Place the chicken back in the oven baking pan with the other side up. Next poor or spoon on the marinate over the top of the chicken; cover all pieces generously using all the marinate.

After thirty minutes remove chicken from the oven. Using tongs, remove each piece and place in a large frying pan. Pour the ½ cup of honey over the chicken and cover. Cook on medium/low heat for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, uncover and turn chicken over; then cover again. Cook  on med/low heat for 10 minutes again.

After 10 minutes, remove from heat and leave in pan covered until ready to serve. The honey will continue to glaze as long as you turn the chicken over every few minutes and keep covered until ready to serve.

When serving, garnish with sesame seeds and fresh parsley. Here’s a picture of what my Honey Glaze – Soy Chicken Thighs looks like. There’s an exciting new flavor that you’ll just love; it’s something different.
