These Maple Soy Glazed Chicken Thighs are easy, delicious, and different than your regular chicken recipe! They're always a hit in our house and with guests!
I don't know about you, but we eat a lot of chicken in our house. We bake it, we herb it, we spice it, we grill it, we taco it, we burrito bowl it, we crock pot it, we make it into stock, and we even Phở it. You get the idea. Since it's such a main part of our diets, we're always looking for new, but easy ways to cook it on busy weeknights. Which makes these Maple Soy Glazed Chicken Thighs one of our new favorite recipes!
6 ingredients! And I bet you have everything you need for the sauce in your pantry, already.
- Boneless Chicken Thighs - Definitely boneless. Adding a bone changes it completely. You could also use chicken tenders - but the dark meat of the thighs is really best.
- Maple Syrup - this should really be the real stuff.
- Soy Sauce - dark and not low sodium is best!
- Apple Cider Vinegar
- Olive Oil
Another great option - Use some of your own Homemade Teriyaki Sauce!
Easy to Make
This is one of those recipes when we need dinner on the table, fast.
- Heat some olive oil in a pan
- Season thighs with salt
- Add chicken thighs to hot pan, cook for a few minutes on each side
- Add the whisked vinegar, syrup, and soy sauce
- Cook until there's a delicious glaze!
The glaze will cook quickly, so be sure to coat those delightful little chicken thighs!
Yumm. See that glaze? It's absolutely delightful - and super flavorful!
