  • 3 pounds chicken thighs boneless and skinless
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 8 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup chicken broth
  • ½ teaspoon pepper or to taste


  • Preheat the oven and prep the chicken: Preheat your oven to 425 F degrees. Remove the chicken thighs from their packaging and pat them dry with paper towels.
  • Combine the sauce: Add all the sauce ingredients together to a sauce pan and whisk over medium heat until all the sugar dissolves. Pour about half of the sauce in a large casserole dish, arrange the chicken thighs in the dish, then pour the remaining sauce over the chicken.
  • Bake the chicken: Transfer the casserole dish to the oven and bake uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes, basting with sauce every 10 minutes.
  • Garnish and serve: Garnish with chopped parsley or cilantro if preferred, and serve. 



  1. Store leftover chicken in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days.
  2. Freeze this stored in airtight containers for up to 3 months! Allow to thaw overnight in the fridge before heating back up in the oven, on the stove, or on the microwave.
  3. Please keep in mind that nutritional information is a rough estimate and can vary greatly based on products used.
