NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup sweet soy glaze (such as Kikkoman)
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 8 skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs (about 2 1/2 pounds)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 6 cups pre-cut vegetables, such as broccoli florets, red bell peppers and/or carrots (about 14 ounces)
  • Cooked white rice, for serving
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Mix the soy glaze with the rice vinegar and garlic. Divide the sauce between 2 small bowls and add 2 tablespoons water to one bowl; set aside.

  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Heat the vegetable oil in a large ovenproof nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken skin-side down and cook until the skin is golden and crisp, about 6 minutes. Flip and cook until golden on the other side, about 4 more minutes. Pour the thinned soy glaze mixture over the chicken. Transfer to the oven and bake, 10 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, combine the vegetables, 2 tablespoons water and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a microwave-safe bowl; cover loosely with plastic wrap. Microwave until tender, about 4 minutes. Stir in 1 tablespoon of the remaining soy glaze mixture.

  • Remove the chicken from the oven; brush with the remaining soy glaze mixture. Return to the oven and bake until the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes. Serve with the vegetables and rice.
