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


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
