This easy weeknight dinner takes practically zero effort.

Do you marinate the chicken?

Nope! You sear it, then pour over a simple glaze of soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, Sriracha, and honey and bake the chicken until it’s cooked through, about 25 minutes. The flavor will soak into the chicken as it bakes, so no marinade necessary.

Can I use chicken thighs in this recipe?

You sure can! In fact, watch the below video for instructions using thighs. You don’t need to sear thighs for quite as long before pouring in the marinade.

How do I know when the chicken is cooked through?

Chicken is cooked through when its juices run clear. You can also use a meat thermometer to make sure the internal temperature reaches 165º.
