Citrus Chicken Thighs Recipe
  1. Preheat oven to 425. Prepare chicken by rubbing salt and pepper on both sides of each thigh and place on rimmed baking sheet skin-side down. Place in the oven and bake 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, create the glaze by combine citrus juices in a measuring cup. You want about 3/4 cup of juice. Add ginger, garlic, crushed red pepper, soy sauce, and vinegar.
  3. Pour juice mixture into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat and cook 5 minutes. Add marmalade and stir to combine. Bring back to a simmer. Sauce will begin to thicken, however you may need to add a little thickener to help it along. If so, in a small cup combine cornstarch with water to create a slurry. Add 1 tbsp of your slurry to the glaze at a time, stirring in between additions until your glaze is thickened to your liking.
  4. Brush glaze on the thighs and flip them over (skin-side up) and drain any grease from the baking sheet. Brush glaze on the skin-side and bake for an additional 20-25 minutes or until the skin is crispy, brushing glaze on every 7-10 minutes or so.
