If you’d like, you can double the marinade recipe for more sauce in order to add some to your steamed rice or noodles.

When you bake chicken thighs with this simple marinade, they turn out flavorful.  We often grill chicken thighs on the barbecue, but I prefer to bake them in the oven, simply because it’s faster and easier!

Keep in mind, you don’t want to over bake the chicken or they will turn out dry.
