Asian-Style Baked Chicken

from ButterYum
makes 4 servings

1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or granulated garlic)
ground black pepper to taste
garnish: sliced scallions

Preheat the oven to 350F.  Combine the ketchup, honey, and garlic powder in a small bowl.  Wrap a sheet pan with foil (I like to use non-stick foil) and place an oven safe rack in the pan.  Trim the excess fat from the chicken thighs and place them right side up in a single layer on the rack.  Use a pastry brush to apply about 1/3 of the ketchup mixture to the chicken thighs and bake for 15 minutes.  Then baste with another 1/3 of the ketchup mixture and bake for another 15 minutes; repeat one more time using the remaining 1/3 of the ketchup mixture.   Remove chicken from the oven and sprinkle with ground black pepper to taste.  Garnish with sliced scallions and serve.
