These chicken thighs are marinated in soy sauce, honey and lime juice, then baked. Cutting slashes in the underside of the chicken helps the marinade penetrate, even if you only marinate for fifteen minutes or so while the oven preheats.
I checked Pure Simple Cooking: Effortless Meals Every Day by Diana Henry out from the library but am already thinking I will buy it. This was the first recipe in the book and the first recipe I wanted to try and it was fantastic! I served it with rice and a zucchini salad of sorts for a near-perfect dinner. I only marinated four chicken thighs but there’s enough marinade for eight, which is what the recipe calls for. I marinated in the same pan I baked them in and just dumped out most of the marinade. The juices that were left after baking were delicious spooned over the rice.0
