I love chicken thighs because they cook so quickly and are very forgiving. This recipe has minimal ingredients, comes together in no time and makes for an incredibly low-fuss but satisfying weeknight dinner. Serve it with some rice and any side of your choosing!
Arrange the chicken thighs on a baking sheet, evenly spaced, and pat the skin dry with a paper towel. Rub the chicken skin with the oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast until the skin is golden brown and crispy and the meat registers 165 degrees F when an instant-read thermometer is inserted into the thickest part of the meat, 35 to 40 minutes.
To make the sauce, whisk together the pineapple juice, garlic, honey and hot sauce in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half and slightly thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.
Drizzle the sauce over the crispy chicken skin and serve warm with cooked rice. Sprinkle with cilantro if using.
