- 1 1/2 pounds chicken thigh meat
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 cup light soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons red rice vinegar or red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons good bourbon whiskey
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar, or to taste (up to 4 tablespoons if desired)
- 1 green onion (scallion, spring onion, washed and cut into thirds)
- 2 slices ginger
- 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
Place the chicken thighs in a shallow 9 x 13-inch baking dish. Combine the remaining ingredients and pour over the chicken. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Turn the thighs occasionally to make sure they are entirely coated in the marinade.
Preheat the oven to 350 F / 177 C / Gas 4. Bake the chicken, uncovered, with the marinade, for 45 minutes to 1 hour, basting occasionally, until the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced in the thickest part of the thigh, or a meat thermometer reads at least 170 F / 77 C in the same part of the thigh. Serve hot.
- Instead of thighs, you can use breast meat and make these into skewers that you grill.
- Not a fan of ginger? Feel free to switch up some of the ingredients. Try using brown sugar and garlic powder instead of fresh garlic and ginger.
