Ingredients

  • 4 skin-on bone-in or boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp sesame oil
  • 3 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tbsp lemon or lime juice
  • 5 Tbsp honey
  • 6 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger finely grated
  • ½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp kosher salt plus more to taste
  • 2 Thai chiles de-seeded and finely chopped (optional)

Instructions

  • Mix all ingredients for the marinade together in a bowl or a Ziploc bag. Add the chicken breasts and cover with the marinade. Marinate in a fridge for at least 30 minutes and up 24 hours. The longer the better.
  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Place the chicken breasts together with the marinade in a baking dish. Bake at 375F for about 35 minutes, until the internal temperature reaches 160°F. Baste the chicken with the marinade and the juices a couple of times during the bake to prevent tops from drying out.
  • If you want the tops nicely crisped up and browned, turn on the broiler on high for a couple of minutes at the end of the bake, just before the chicken breasts hit 160F internal temperature. Make sure to keep a close eye on the chicken during broiling to prevent burning.
  • Remove the baked chicken breasts from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
