This chicken thigh marinade recipe is made for those loving the concept of tender chicken soaked in flavorful condiments, spices, and fragrant herbs.
We bathe the chicken thighs in our fool-proof homemade soy-garlic marinade, then bake them in the oven until the outside is slightly charred and the inside remains juicy and moist. Serve with some air-fried sweet potatoes and green peas on the side, and there you have a delectable meat-and-veg dinner.
