Slice the chicken partway through diagonally and place in a plastic zip lock bag. A bowl will do as well.
To make the marinate, add all of the ingredients to a bowl and mix until well combined.
Pour the marinate over the chicken in the bag. Seal and place in the fridge for at least half an hour. Overnight is best if you have the time.
Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil on the bottom and cover with parchment paper. Place the chicken on leaving some space between each piece. Spoon more of the marinate over the top.
Place in a 390 degree F preheated oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, spread more marinate over the top and place back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes.
Serve with orange slices and enjoy your your sticky glazed chicken.

Ingredient Substitutions: Feel free to customize the glaze by experimenting with different ingredients. Swap out honey for maple syrup or agave nectar, or try using tamari instead of soy sauce for a gluten-free option. Get creative and tailor the flavors to your liking!
Marinating Time: To enhance the flavor, consider marinating the chicken thighs in the glaze for at least 30 minutes before cooking. This allows the marinade to penetrate the meat, resulting in a more flavorful and juicy dish.
Basting for Extra Flavor: For an extra burst of flavor, baste the chicken with the glaze during the cooking process. Basting every 15-20 minutes ensures that the chicken stays moist and absorbs the delicious flavors of the glaze.
Crispy Skin Tip: If you love crispy chicken skin, start by searing the chicken thighs in a hot pan for a couple of minutes on each side before transferring them to the oven. This step helps achieve that perfect crispy texture.
Garnish with Fresh Herbs: Before serving, garnish your Glazed Sticky Chicken Thighs with freshly chopped herbs like parsley, cilantro, or green onions. This adds a pop of color and freshness to the dish, elevating its presentation.
Side Dish Pairing: Consider serving the chicken thighs with a side of roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, or a festive wild rice blend. The glaze complements a variety of side dishes, making it a versatile and delightful addition to your holiday spread.
