Soy, Honey and Ginger Glazed Chicken Thighs

We have become a little spoiled here at our
house lately with all this time to cook good meals.
It has gotten to the point where we would rather
make dinners at home than go out to eat ~
except for a few of our favorite restaurants.
The Dinner Menu for tonight:
Soy, Honey, & Ginger Glazed Chicken
Roasted CherryTomatoes
Green Beans with a Honey Mustard Sauce
If making this Soy, Honey & Ginger Glaze
for chicken I believe is best on chicken thighs or chicken wings.
Here is the recipe:
2 tablespoons peanut or almond oil
3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup soy sauce
3/4 cup honey
1 tsp. ground ginger
pinch of ground red pepper
freshly ground black pepper
You can marinate the chicken for a hour or so in the
refrigerator if you have the time but I didn't tonight.
I decided to put the chicken in a greased, deep casserole
dish and pour the glaze on top. I cooked the chicken at
475 degrees for about 25-30 minutes.
I started to cook the chicken covered and then for the
last 10 minutes I uncovered it to get that nice color.
After the chicken cooked, I took the left over sauce
and poured it into a pan and cooked it on high,
while continuously stirring it, until it thickened and
then poured a little more glaze over the chicken for serving.

And here you have it ~ a wonderful dinner!!
