Asian Glazed Chicken Thighs

Everyone goes for this super moist, garlicky chicken, including my fussy kids. For your holiday buffet or family gathering, serve it with rice or noodles. —Carole Lotito, Hillsdale, New Jersey

    Too sharp. Took my breath away. Probably could use some brown sugar. Will not make again. For those who liked it, please enjoy.

    We had these delicious chicken thighs tonight. I followed the recipe exactly and they were delicious. The sauce did not thicken very much but was delicious over the brown rice. This is definitely a 5-star recipe. Volunteer Field Editor

    This was very good. I doubled the sauce, but it didn't get as thick as I would like. Next time I will add a cornstarch slurry. The chicken was very tender.

    This is excellent recipe for something different for chicken. Everyone liked it and I will definitely make it again. Because we like our food on the spicy side I added 1 tablespoon of sriracha sauce. The sauce thickened up very nicely.
