Thunder Thighs
INGREDIENTS
  • 8 to 10 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs, washed and patted dry
  • Marinade:
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup Sriracha sauce ("red rooster" sauce)
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3 to 4 cloves garlic or to taste, peeled, finely minced or pressed
DIRECTIONS
  1. Place the thighs in a gallon plastic sealable bag.
  2. In a measuring cup combine all the marinade ingredients, pour the mix into the bag, seal and squish the bag around to coat the thighs evenly. Let them marinate in the refrigerator for 1 to 3 hours.
  3. Bake at 375 for one hour.
RECIPE BACKSTORY
For a lighter version, use skinless bone-in thighs. I've used this marinade with pork tenderloin too. Be careful, it packs a wallop.
