Baked Chicken Thighs in a Sticky-Sweet Barbecue Sauce

If you are a barbecue fan, this chicken dish will have you asking for more!


16 boneless, skinless chicken thighs (about 3 lbs.)


1/2 cup barbecue sauce (hickory flavored is nice)
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup liquid honey or maple syrup
1 Tbsp. chili powder<
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. grated ginger root
1 tsp. minced garlic
1 tsp. ground cumin
1 Tbsp. cornstarch


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Arrange chicken things in the pan in a single layer.

Whisk together all sauce ingredients in a medium bowl. Pour evenly over chicken. Turn pieces to coat both sides with sauce. Bake, uncovered, for about 40 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the center.

Remove chicken from pan and keep warm. Carefully pour sauce from pan into a small pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Combine cornstarch with an equal amount of water and mix until smooth. Add to sauce. Cook until sauce is bubbly and thickened, about 1 minute. Serve hot chicken with extra sauce on top.
