Oven Baked Teriyaki Chicken Thighs

This post may contain affiliate links.

A little bit ago one of my bloggie friends, Kristen from Dine and Dish, recommended a recipe for Oven Baked Teriyaki Chicken Thighs that she had adapted from Allrecipes.  I had some chicken thighs left over from when I purchase some to make the Chicken Enchilada Tostadas.  I trusted her recommendation and decided to do my own adaptation to use my boneless skinless chicken thighs.

The teriyaki sauce is perfect and full of flavor.  There is enough sauce to drizzle over some steamed rice to serve on the side.  However, if you are a big sauce fan you can make some extra to drizzle over the steamed rice.  I served my oven baked teriyaki chicken thighs with some fried rice on the side.

  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp cold water
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup soy sauce
  • ¼ cup rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • black pepper to taste
  • 9 boneless skinless chicken thighs (about 2 1/2 pounds)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a small saucepan, whisk together the cornstarch and cold water until smooth and no lumps. Then, whisk in the sugar, soy sauce, vinegar, garlic, and ground black pepper. Bring to a boil over medium heat then reduce it and simmer until thickens.  You will end up with about 1 cup of sauce.
  • Trim off any pieces of fat from each chicken thigh using kitchen shears. Place chicken pieces in a 9×13 inch baking dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Pour 1/2 half of the sauce over the chicken, brushing each piece so it is coated.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Turn pieces over and drizzle remaining sauce on top.   Bake for an additional 15 to 20 minutes more until inner temperature reaches 165 degrees or juices run clear.

  5. I loved this recipe and saved it on Pinterest. I also shared it on my link party hope you don’t mind, you have a lovely site and I look forward to more of your recipes.

  6. These look so good. We eat chicken thighs often as they are one of the most reasonable priced “meats” around here. I am always on the look out for new recipes to use. I will include these in my next “Chinese Take-Out at Home” night.

  7. You could use regular vinegar and have it turn out fine. Rice vinegar is still less acidic and milder in flavor than regular vinegar. There is also a hint of sweetness.
