Sticky Orange Glazed Chicken Thighs

Serves 4

 

Ingredients

8 bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs

Coarse salt and ground pepper

1 cup thawed orange juice concentrate or orange juice

1 cup ketchup

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

4 teaspoons white wine vinegar

4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

2 teaspoons hot sauce
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, optional

 

Directions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Position oven rack in upper third.

 

Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper and arrange skin side down on a rimmed, foil lined baking sheet. Bake chicken until cooked through, 45 to 50 minutes, flipping halfway through.

 

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine 1 teaspoon salt, juice concentrate, ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Bring to a boil then simmer on low until mixture thickens, 18 to 20 minutes.

 

Preheat broiler. Transfer chicken to a large bowl, add glaze, and toss to coat. Drain off fat from sheet. Return chicken to sheet and broil until sauce is bubbling and chicken is dark brown in spots, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired, and serve.

 

Enjoy!
