Sticky Orange-Glazed Chicken Thighs

Source: Everyday Food, June 2012


  • 8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 cup thawed orange juice concentrate
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons white-wine vinegar
  • 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees, with rack in upper third. Season chicken with salt and pepper and arrange, skin side down, on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake until deep golden brown and cooked through, 45 to 50 minutes, flipping halfway through.

  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine 1 teaspoon salt, juice concentrate, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce. Bring to a simmer and cook until mixture has thickened, 18 to 20 minutes.

  3. Heat broiler. Transfer chicken to a large bowl, add glaze, and toss to coat. Drain off fat from sheet. Return chicken to sheet and broil until sauce is bubbling and chicken is dark brown in spots, 1 to 2 minutes.

    I made this for dinner this evening and it was DELICIOUS! Usually recipes that are "orange" flavored are hardly orange tasting at all, but this one hits the spot! This one will be a family favorite in the cookbook.

    Oh, and I used Asian Chili Garlic sauce instead of Tabasco - nice compliment to the orange

    I made this last night with drumsticks. Substituted orange juice instead of the concentrate and other ingredients as noted in yesterday's post. SO easy and just the right amount of tang. This will easily become a favorite. Looking forward to trying on other things like shrimp, or baby back ribs!

    I'm going to try this tonight. I will follow the ingredients on the video and not the printed recipe. They are different.
    Oven temp: 350 degrees NOT 450 degrees
    Vinegar: 2 teaspoons (tsp) not 4 teaspoons and NOT Tablespoons (Tbsp) as previous posts have suggested
    W-shire sauce: 2 tsp not 4 tsp and NOT Tbsp
    Hot sauce: 1 tsp & maybe more depending on personal taste.
    Disappointed that the printed recipe didn't match video.
    Still looking forward to making this tonight.

    > Shannalicious 4 teaspoons -- otherwise will be bland . . .

  • TEdersheim 7 Nov, 2012

    Sarah, can I do this with chicken breast? My family doesn't like thighs (I do )

  • Shannalicious 7 Nov, 2012

    Sorry - I meant tsp not tbsp!

  • Shannalicious 7 Nov, 2012

    In the video, Sarah uses 2 tbsp of vinegar and 2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce, but the recipe calls for 4 tbsp of each - which measure should we use?

  • sockomom 7 Nov, 2012

    what's going on with sarah's videos! no new videos for days and now a repost. i did make this recipe. not too bad, but it was a little too orangey

  • pattipoopidoo 7 Nov, 2012

    oK, not great. Not a do-over for me.

  • bossa 26 Oct, 2012

    i havent tried this recipe although it does look good. im curious why oj concentrate is used instead of fresh orange juice or even carton orange juice for that matter. concentrate is sooooo high in sugar and kind of a bastardation of food! it seems like a shame to recommend to people that they use something that is so unhealthy when a healthier option is so easy to come across.

  • Wivabef 3 Sep, 2012

    It was a little too orangy, and not quite spicy enough. I think I would halve the orange concentrate and double the hot sauce. You won't need to compensate for volume, because I had a good amount left over in the bowl after tossing the thighs in it.

    my new fave!!! Love it! Thanks Sarah

    my new fave!!! Love it! Thanks Sarah

    Very yummy. I cooked the chicken over indirect heat on the Bbq, about 40 minutes, tossed it in the sauce and put it back on the Bbq for a few more minutes.
    I usually don't really like chicken at all thought it was good, but my husband really enjoyed it. It's a do over!

  • Bri 22 Jun, 2012

    This was great. My only change would be more hot sauce!

  • cherylbb 20 Jun, 2012

    I made this for dinner last night. I followed the recipe on the web page (not video) and it came out great. I made 2 small alterations. I used the entire can of concentrate because I did not have another use for it -- and i liked the extra orangy flavor. I also sprinkled meat with S&P AND garlic powder. Kids really loved it. Sauce recipe makes more than what you need. I recommend storing 1/2 before you toss with chicken to use for another night.

    This looks yummy!! I cant wait to give it a try.
    I really like the videos that are being made. What I want to know is will that baking sheet ever come clean??

  • jharyoungblood 19 Jun, 2012

    Looks YUMMY! Just have a question about the ingredient quantities? They are different in the recipe from what she uses in the video. Is this right?? Which measurements
    are correct?
