This roasted chicken recipe showcases juicy, flavorful chicken thighs with a lemony sauce that bakes itself in the pan. Roasted chicken thighs are the ideal weeknight dinner for busy families.Adapted from "Mad Hungry: Feeding Men and Boys" by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan; 2009).
This dish is incredibly flavorful and unbelievably simple. Soy sauce and orange juice permeate the fish, while toasted-sesame oil gives it a nutty accent. Boiling the marinade turns it into a thick glaze.
It's a good idea to place the plastic bag holding the steak and marinade on a rimmed baking sheet or in a baking dish, in case of any leaks.
