Recipe

Lately one of my favorite ways to cook boneless skinless chicken thighs is under the broiler.  Not only do they come out tender with a delicous, crispy exterior - they cook in about 10 minutes.  That's faster than choosing a restaurant for take-out in my house.  This simple broiled chicken thigh recipe uses Asian spices and ingredients to create a flavorful, tangy, slighty spicy marinade.  If you like to have extra sauce, boil the remaining marinade for 5-10 minutes on the stove to create some extra sauce to drizzle over the cooked thighs.
