    It was great! I added some green hot sauce and extra garlic powder. Husband loved it and he isn’t the biggest fan of chicken thighs. Will def make again.

    "Killer" is exactly what this recipe is! A cross between a Honey Garlic and Teriyaki. Marinated chicken drumsticks for 9 hrs. They were unbelievably moist and delicious. The only thing I had to change was to omit the salt as I was using regular soy sauce, not low sodium.😋

    Pretty good. Since I didn’t have bone in skin on thighs it probably isn’t fair to rate this. Good flavor, but it’s just chicken thighs.

    This is a really great marinade, very flavourful. But didn’t cook the thighs at 450*F, 425*F was high enough, for 30 minutes.

    I used boneless skinless chicken thighs instead and it was just as good! I marinated them for about a day then baked them at 350 for 15 minutes on one side and about 10 minutes the other side. Very juicy!

    The flavor was good - I will probably use this one again and maybe add a little ginger.

    I only marinated my boneless chicken thighs for 8 hours. The chicken was tender and juicy with an amazing flavor. Also it left my house smelling great! I will make this super easy recipe again and again
