Say hello to your favorite new way to cook chicken thighs – the broiler!

Seriously, why did it take me so long to learn this easy and delicious trick to make juicy chicken thighs? They come out juicy and tender with just enough crisp and crunch on the outside. Perfect. And in under 15 minutes? That’s a kitchen win every time.

For today’s version (because I can almost certainly promise that this won’t be the last broiled chicken thigh recipe here), we are going to marinate the chicken in savory earthy Hoisin sauce, lime juice, a touch of sweet brown sugar, some rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, sesame oil, and a touch of spice from my beloved Sriracha. You can leave that out if you don’t like spice. It’s still de-li-cious. Once that has a chance to do it’s thing overnight, we are going to pop these flavor bombs under the broiler for just 10-12 minutes and dinner is served. Easy. Delicious. Quick.
